One of my father's favorite bread tips I countlessly, and no less fondly, tell is his recommendation on how to toast bread. Deceivingly simple, incredibly smart and generous, he would suggest to put two slices of bread in a single toaster slot.The result is a duality between a crunchy, flavorful, golden toasted side, in conversation with a soft, comforting and warm face.
First and foremost, this single toasted side slice of bread will be incredibly nicer to eat. This is due to the contrast in flavors and textures. Then, it will stay that way longer than when the toasting has dried up both sides and little hydration is left to keep your slice generous and smooth.
Lastly, if you are greeting guests, putting two slices of toast in one slot effectively doubles your output, slims your time in the kitchen in half! While rather universal, this method is most effective with a nice slice of a wheat sourdough loaf, dense, thick crusted, with a regular bubble structure.

In acknowledgment that bread comes in all shapes, forms, textures and flavors, it is worth considering its unique qualities in deciding how to
Finally, there is always the case of the accidental thick slice. While some may like exactly that thickness, maybe The Nicer Slicer is that tool that will save the toast, and multiply bread.
