Butterscotch Toast

(3 servings)

  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons butter - softened
  • 1 teaspoon lite cream
  • 6 slices white bread - lightly toasted
This is a quick and satisfying French toast kind of a thing. You mix a couple things together and spread it on bread, then broil. The sweet topping bubbles and creates a layer of butterscotch goodness on top of each slice. The mixture doesn't penetrate the bread like traditional French toast. But if you use a decent bread, you can achieve a French toast-esque taste satisfaction with a quarter of the effort and clean-up. (This recipe was submitted in 2004. It was tested and photographed in August 2014.)

Additional Note From Mr Breakfast:

To spice up the photographs, I drizzled a little store-bought vanilla icing over each slice of toast. Truth be told, it also spiced up the flavor and made the toast that much better. Also, instead of light cream, I used heavy cream. It's just enough to make the butter and brown sugar easy to spread. Milk would have worked just as well.

Just four ingredients are required to make this simple yet delicious toast treat that makes a great breakfast or a terrific snack.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank DixieChick for this recipe.
