Gettin’ toasted with Reader!

Reader here, and I want to know – if you’re feeling lazy, and don’t want to cook, or it’s been one of those days, and you just need a little pick-me-up to get you through the day, what do you like to snack on?

Well, since I was a kid, there’s one thing above all that I like to nosh on…

Mmmmm… I feel like loading up the toaster right now!

That’s right! Toast!

So easy, so delicious.

How do you like your toast? My favourite way? As you can guess from the above picture, I love toast and Cheez Whiz!

I maintain to this day, that the only thing that can salvage a piece of burnt toast is Cheez Whiz. I like my toast on the darker side anyway, but it’s a dynamite combo.

In fact, growing up one New Year’s Eve, I put our toaster at the farm to work, and I crushed an entire loaf of bread, turning it into toast and Cheez Whiz.

I regret nothing.

Fun fact about Cheez Whiz – it was invented back in the 1950’s, in order to help homemakers save time in the kitchen! (Oh, the hours I’ve wasted applying cheese to my toast in less efficient ways!)

I also like to put Cheez Whiz on soda crackers, and it’s one of the key ingredients in a great Philly Cheeseteak!

My mom uses it to make a cheese sauce that goes amazingly well with cauliflower and broccoli, too!

My other favourite way to enjoy toast? With eggs.

In our family, eggs and toast have been a staple for as long as I can remember.

Fry up some eggs (I’m an overeasy guy, myself), lay ’em on top of some toast. Add a little salt and pepper, and voila! And the perfect beverage to go with eggs and toast? Chocolate milk. You gotta try it. Some combos are just magic.

Bring me eggs and toast all day!

This photo? I kid you not… August 2017. My brothers and I were crashing at the Holiday Inn Express in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, after having our faces melted by MetallicA at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton.

We went to bed, and I tossed and turned all night. Didn’t sleep a wink.

Finally, I said “to heck with this,” and headed down to the lobby for the breakfast buffet.

And I found something I’d never seen before.

Usually, at a breakfast buffet, you’ll find a warming tray full of scrambled eggs. Which is fine.

But, this fateful morning in Fort Sask, I found a FRIED EGG buffet, and amazingly, they were even done the way I like ’em!

So, naturally, I had to snap a photo.

Toast and Cheez Whiz, eggs and toast.

Heck, even fry up some bologna, slap some mustard on it, and throw it between two ieces of toast, and you’ve got a tasty sandwich! You can’t beat the versatility of toast!

Toast is so wonderful that songs have been written about it.

This is a classic…

But, I think I have a new favourite ode to my beloved toast…

And yes, that is Paul “Everytime You Go Away” Young on lead vocals!

Everybody loves toast!
