I'm making a gazpacho recipes that calls for a toast point garnish, however, that's all it says. I'm guessing that this is toast with points, but what kind of bread, grilled or oven toasted, any seasonings. I've looked through some recipe books and on the internet for any info, but alas, I remain clueless. Help and thanks. - Beth (9/30/00)


Toast Points:

Toast PointsOne (1) loaf, good quality, thin-sliced white bread.
Unsalted butter, room temperature

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Trim the crusts off the bread and discard.

Slice the bread in halves on the diagonal, twice, to form four (4) triangles; set the bread on a baking sheet, brush one side with the butter.

Place the bread in a single layer on the baking sheet.

Toast the bread until it’s golden brown and crisp on top, approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Flip the toast points and cook the other side until golden, about 1 minute. Remove from oven and cool the "points" on a baking rack.

Spread the cooled toast points with your choice of toppings

Toast Points can be made up to a day ahead; store them in an airtight container.
