What Makes the Best Toast poll

What about Greek toast? You know, the thick, seeded toast found in Chicago's myriad Greek-owned coffee shops that serve breakfast all day. Read my vote for "something else" as one for Greek toast ... though rye is a close second for me.

Can english muffins and bagels be "toast"? Toasted sure, but toast itself? eh.

No, bagels get toasted, but they are not toast.  Thats why you pay extra to sub a bagel for toast.

Agreed -- it has to be bread first to be called toast. Hence the names "white toast," "wheat toast," "rye toast," etc. You don't say "bagel toast" or "muffin toast."

Using that logic, could a biscuit or cornbread browned on both sides by exposure to radiant heat be considered toast?  Maybe in the Webster household, but not around here.  Tasty, yes, "toast", I don't think so.

I would have liked to seen Cinnamon Bread as an option. Great Harvest Bread Company in Salt Lake makes a great Pecan Cinnamon Bread that makes great toast. Also makes some of the best French Toast I've had.

Re:What Makes the Best Toast poll 2009/06/02 13:42:26 (permalink)
so are marshmallows toasted over a campfire considered toast, not the noun.   Not to get all English professorial but I think the confusion lies over how the word is used as a noun (the above definition) or a verb (to cook or brown (food, esp. bread and cheese) by exposure to a grill, fire or other source of radiant heat.  So you could toast a corn muffin or a biscuit but it wouldn't be toast.
Whew I'm toasted.
I'm not this smart I just have a browser and a dictionary, lol

When did cornbread and biscuits become sliced bread?

 
When the suffix "bread" was added to it (cornbread) and it was sliced?
 
My whole point was that when I think of toast, I think of the traditional American version of "toast", i.e. white, wheat, etc.

And then there's barbeque. Verb? Noun?

This is so funny to me, how in the world can a poll about something as simple as "toast" turn into a matter of symantics?
 
Pass the butter please, and I'd really like some blackberry jam.  TIA!

Although I don't eat white bread anymore, it still makes the best "toast". The whole wheat bread I eat now can't compare.

Crumpets make the best toast.  Browned with lots of real butter.  Yum.

Of course English muffins are considered and need to be toasted. Who eats them just plain?  In all my years cooking, I have never sold a raw, plain  un-toasted muffin.
Menus list Eggs Benedict on toasted English muffin. It's expected.

The point is, that just because it is toasted (verb) does not make it toast (noun).

i.e. marshmallows

Re:What Makes the Best Toast poll 2009/06/02 15:35:46 (permalink)
I honestly think next week's poll should cover another controversial subject, such as..............................well, I'm hard pressed to come up with something more simple than "toast". 
 
How about the best way to fix a peanut butter and jelly sandwich using peanut butter and only grape jelly.  That could go on for days!  Which bread, toasted or not, which peanut butter, organic, brand, etc., which type of grape jelly, etc., etc.  Do you like the crust on, or off?  What do you do with said crust if you cut it off - croutons?  Thickener for soups and stews?  Crumbs for the top of your mac & cheese - what kind of cheese do you use in your mac and cheese?  Do you make it from scratch or do you like the (ugh) box kind?
 
Actually, that subject could get really complicated, and I was trying to come up with something as simple as "toast".
 
I thought about water, but that too can get really complicated, as can something as simple as "do you add water or milk to your canned Campbell's tomato soup"?

I like my water to be French, preferably in a handblown collectors edition bottle, with a single twist of lemon zest kissing the rim.

All I know is the old Tastee-Toastee restaurant on Temple Street in New Haven did not serve it's toasted cheese sandwiches on English muffins, bagels, or cornbread.

Sheesh....first you had no interest in the legendary discussion regarding the toasting or not toasting of Pop Tarts (perhaps you're just an anti-toast-ite???) and now this?  Will nothing make you happy?  Perhaps this burning, highly-interesting and thought-provoking thread will be more in line with what you imagine your Roadfood.com utopia to be?
