I asked in an earlier thread what is Texas Toast? Had no answer, guess everyone missed the question. I ask again: Please, what is Texas Toast? Phil

Phil,
Texas Toast is BIG like Texas. A slice is square (no rounding top) and it is sliced far thicker than regular bread. Burgers are often served on toasted Texas Toast rather than on buns. (At least here in MN...not sure about Texas).

Edit: Forgot, it also great to use for garlic toast. A little butter and some garlice powder (we don't like garlic salt). Then broil it or toast in toaster over.

Here's a pic of what I think of as Texas Toast.

But there is a company that sells oval garlic-cheese bread and they call it Texas Toast too.

Looks like what I get here, my favorite food shop has a burger called a Terry burger with Texas toast, onion, cheese, etc.

Pretty tasty but a bit messy!!

Sweetfeet, thanks for the information and picture. It looks and sounds like a recipe for heart failure, but I bet it tastes good. We have never been to Texas during one of our visits to the USA, but heres a reason to go!
Thanks to everyone who replied, to our English eyes you guys have some strange food combinations BUT I have never been disappointed.

Its also served sometimes instead of dinner rolls, with a chicken fried steak, Every real Texas Restaurant boasts "The Best Chicken-Fried Steak" with Texas Toast, mashed potatoes, and Gravy all over everything. So needless to say I always have to try it to see if it truly is the "Best".

Started using a bread machine again this fall and made this yesterday. Might make "Texas Toast" with some garlic and cheese. Sure smells good while baking.

It's kinda like 'Italian Sausage' you dont have to go to Italy to get it. I dont know for sure if you can get it in all '50', but you can get 'Texas Toast' in most States in the U.S.of A.

As Sweet Feet indicated, it's just a double thick slice of bread. Origin of the phrase is unknown to me, a born, raised, and lifelong (other than the time I served my country) die hard native Texan living therein.

Wikipedia has a neat history on it:

"One claimant to the invention of Texas toast is the Pig Stand restaurant chain, founded in Oak Cliff, a neighborhood of Dallas, Texas, in the early 1920s. The once-thriving chain, whose heyday in the 1940s saw over 100 locations across the United States, also claims to be the originator of the onion ring.[7] Texas toast may have been first created in 1941 at the Pig Stand in Beaumont, Texas, after a bakery order for thicker slices of bread resulted in slices too thick for the toaster and a cook who suggested buttering and grilling them as a remedy."

A few places in Michigan use Texas Toast for their French Toast, same as what SweetFeet posted. Double thick, square loaf.

I saw your question, but figured someone else would answer it. Go figure. Well I see you have plenty of answers now, and SweetFeet is spot on.
If you ever come to Texas, be sure and visit a Whataburger. Several of their meals are on Texas Toast. Here is my favorite, the Patty Melt. Mmmmm....mmmmmm.....good!
