Perfect Grilled Toast

Grilling toast on the Arteflame grill brings out a flavor and texture that traditional toasting methods can't match. The even heat distribution and control over temperature zones ensure a crisp, golden-brown finish every time. Let's make the perfect toast that will elevate your breakfast or complement any meal.

Ingredients

  • 4 slices of your favorite bread (sourdough, whole wheat, or white)
  • 2 tablespoons of softened butter
  • Optional toppings: avocado, tomatoes, cheese, jam, honey, or your favorite spreads

Instructions

Step 1: Fire Up the Grill

Start by firing up your Arteflame grill to get it ready for grilling. You want to create a medium heat zone on the flat cooktop.

Step 2: Prepare the Bread

Spread a thin layer of softened butter on both sides of each slice of bread. This will help achieve that golden-brown finish and add a rich flavor.

Step 3: Grill the Bread

Place the buttered bread slices on the flat cooktop griddle. Position them towards the center for a higher heat, which will give a quick sear, then move them to the outer edges to finish toasting evenly.

By placing thinly sliced bread on the grill grate, you will get a stronger smokey flavor.  The bread will be perfectly toasted on the outside and the center will still be fluffy.  By using the flat griddle cooktop, the outside of the toast will be perfect and the inside will be crunchier as well.  Using thicker slices, it is easier to get the outside of the bread perfectly toasted while keeping the center soft and fluffy.

Step 4: Monitor and Flip

Keep a close eye on the bread, flipping it after about 1-2 minutes or when you see a beautiful golden-brown color. Toast the other side for another 1-2 minutes.

Step 5: Add Toppings (Optional)

Once the toast is perfectly grilled, you can add your favorite toppings. Whether you go for a savory avocado and tomato combination or a sweet spread of jam and honey, the grilled toast will provide a delicious base.

Tips

  • Butter Substitute: If you prefer, you can use olive oil instead of butter. However, butter gives a richer flavor and a better crust.
  • Herb Infusion: For extra flavor, mix some finely chopped herbs like rosemary or thyme into the butter before spreading it on the bread.
  • Cheese Melt: If you love cheese, add a slice of your favorite cheese on top of the toast for the last 30 seconds on the grill to let it melt perfectly.

Conclusion

Grilling toast on the Arteflame grill is a simple yet effective way to enhance the flavor and texture of your bread. With its even heat distribution and control over temperature zones, you can achieve a perfectly golden-brown and crispy finish every time.
