Ghost Toast

Sunday, October 4, 2009

Cinnamon and sugar toast is a time-tested, kid favorite. This simple trick will dress it up for Halloween. When I first saw this breakfast dish I thought it was fairly self-explanatory, but I actually messed it up the first time. Crazy, huh? I mean really... how do you mess up toast? But leave it to me, I did it. So I have included some helpful hints for those who are like me and need LOTS of guidelines. This technique is not limited to ghosts, you can also make cut-outs for skulls, moons, jack-o-lantern faces, etc..

Serves: 4
Start-to-Finish: 15 minutes
Recipe By: The Charlotte Weekly


8 slices of bread
aluminum foil


1. Using you bread slices as a guide; cut out a ghost shape from the foil. (If you cut out more than one ghost shape you can toast more than one slice of bread at a time.)
2. Butter and sugar each slice of bread on one side. (It is important to do these steps BEFORE you toast the bread. If you do it afterward it will lessen the clean lines of your ghost and spread darker bits of cinnamon where you want it to be white.)
3. Place the foil cut-outs on the buttered and sugared side of bread and cook in a toaster oven. (If you don't have a toaster oven you can also place the slices on a baking sheet and slip under a preheated broiler for about two or three minutes.)
4. Once the bread is golden brown remove from toaster oven.
5. BEFORE removing the foil, sprinkle generously with cinnamon.
6. Remove foil and enjoy.
