In a small bowl, mix together the softened butter, minced garlic, chopped parsley, dried oregano, and a pinch of salt until well combined. If you’re adding Parmesan cheese, mix half into the butter and reserve half for topping.

Next, spread a generous amount of the garlic butter mixture on one side of each slice of bread. If you have reserved Parmesan, sprinkle it on top of the buttered slices. Place the buttered slices, buttered side up, on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and crispy.

For extra crispiness and a golden top, broil the toast for an additional 1-2 minutes, but watch it carefully to prevent burning. Remove the Texas Toast from the oven, garnish with a little extra chopped parsley for color, and serve hot.

What is Texas Toast?

Texas Toast is a type of thick-cut bread, typically about 1 inch thick, that’s buttered and often flavored with garlic and herbs before being baked or grilled. It’s known for its crispy edges and soft, buttery interior.

Can I use a different type of bread for Texas Toast?

Absolutely! While thick-cut white bread is traditional, you can use French bread, sourdough, or even whole wheat for a different flavor and texture.

How do I make the toast extra crispy?

For extra crispiness, broil the toast for an additional 1-2 minutes after baking. Keep a close eye on it to prevent burning.
