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.

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.

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.

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 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"?

Regarding the "Egg-Roll"--I suffered a real problem when I was rolled once just after I was laid. It took a long time to regain my identity! That was a very long time ago!

Returning to the topic at hand (pun intended), I do remember enjoying the cinnamon/raisin toast we used to have with our weekend breakfast when I was a kid. That cinnamon spiral loaf with the frosting that always messed up the toaster was delicious !

I am not a fan of Cuban bread as it is too doughy and has little taste, however I do like it toasted when it is buttered and pressed instead of placed in a toaster with some strong Cuban cafe con leche, more coffee than milk. I prefer the egg rools of a media noche sandwich more than the bread of a Cuban sandwich
 
My favorite toast is San Francisco brand extra soudough sliced bread loaf, slightly buttered and slighty toasted

I like rye.. love cuban bread but ya just cannot stick it in a TOASTER...( hence.. "Toast")...... unless you make it very small....Cuban bread should be drilled or pressed......

Last Sunday I breakfasted at a local restaurant and as always I ordered rye toast, and to my surprise the slices were about 3/4" thick (it was marble rye in the common loaf shape).  This is a new one on me; usually the slices are thinner although I've had white and wheat/multigrain toast that thick before.

I was surprised at how good it was.  The outside was nice and crisp with plenty of butter while the center of each slice was still soft and chewy.  Unfortunately I didn't think to ask the waitress about it, but the next time I'm in the local bakery I'll have to check to see if I can get an unsliced loaf to try it this way at home.

Although NY rye bread is my favorite toast I think Amish White and Wheat bread makes great toast - here it is - in its nude condition:

When I get some in stock I will post it in its gorgeous toasted condition.

I'm amazed that no one has mentioned FRENCH TOAST! I make French Toast with 2 types of bread depending on my mood. I use French Baguettes or Challah Bread. I slice both of them into 3-4" slices on the bias so I call it Bar Mitzvah Toast! In a 9X13 baking dish, I scramble 1 egg for each slice of bread & 1 pack of artificial sweetener for each slice of bread. I add milk & GOOD quality Vanilla and mix it thoroughly. Melt copious quanities of butter in a high sided, flat bottom pan. Some people like browned butter, others do not. Your call.  Put the bread slices in the baking dish and flip over until both sides of the bread are coated and some of the egg mixture is absorbed. Put bread in the pan over medium heat until the surface is browned to your liking. Put on a plate & sprinkle with powdered sugar. The secret to good French Toast is the quality & the thickness of the bread---The thicker, the better.
