What is Texas Toast?

Texas Toast is a thick, buttery garlic toast that is the perfect side for almost any meal!

Why do they call it Texas Toast?

Texas toastmay have been first created in 1946 at the Pig Stand in Denton,Texas, after a bakery order for thicker slices of bread resulted in slices too thick for the toaster and a cook, Wiley W. W. Cross, suggested buttering and grilling them as a solution.

Best Bread for Texas Toast Garlic Bread

I start with a fresh loaf of white bread from the bakery at my grocery store-it’s priced usually about $1.50 so not only is this route tastier, it saves me money on my grocery budget as well. You can also make it with Italian or submarine bread as well, I prefer the bread to be as fresh as possible for the best results.
