I am taking a break from my Toaster Tuesday recipes for awhile as spring chores have been stealing my time and zapping my ideas! I hope you all appreciate this quick easy meal as a substitute! This meal takes about 30 minutes from start to finish and is a great solution to dinner during a busy week. I love to serve it with fresh hot dinner rolls or with garlic bread.

Enjoy!

Cinnamon Toast

Ingredients

  • Sliced bread
  • Butter
  • Powdered Cinnamon
  • Sugar

Instructions

  • Spread one tablespoon of butter per slice of bread
  • Fill a bowl with desired amount of sugar. This depends on how many slices of toast you want to make. You need an even layer of sugar to cover your bread.
  • Add powdered cinnamon to your sugar to desired taste. I put quite a bit in mine because I really like cinnamon.
  • Mix cinnamon/sugar together
  • Sprinkle on top of buttered bread
  • Toast in toaster oven to desired doneness

This is a classic snack my mom would make my brother and I when we were little. It brings back fond memories of childhood every time we make it.
