Making Bread Toast to serve with Omelette

Preparing toast is very easy but making it just right amount of crispy is something you should consider. Some people like to have Omelette with a crispy toast and a cup of tea. To prepare the toast, you can either use a toaster or can simply use a frying pan. Using a toaster is quite straightforward as you just need to put the bread slices into a toaster and the toast is ready in a minute or two based on timer settings you choose.

You can also prepare similar toast in a frying pan. To do this, just put breads on a frying pan and keep the gas flame to medium or low. Keep tossing the toast so they get crisp on both sides, but do not press them. If you press the bread then they may not become crispy. Let the toasts take their time and get crispy. It should take a two minutes or less to get the toasts ready. Once they are slightly brown on both side, it is ready to be served with Omelette. This whole process may add few more minutes to your cook time.
