Texas Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar Toast

I have mentioned this before, but I was blessed to grow up in a house where my Mom would make a legit breakfast for us every day. Eggs, a meat and some type of toast was on frequent rotation. The toast is what changed… It was plain with jam, broiled with cheese and lastly the cinnamon sugar butter also broiled.

The butter spots would show up in four spots where she used a pat of butter. Then a sugar and cinnamon mixture spread atop the buttered bread that would caramelize into a crispy top. Since it was broiled the underbelly of the bread stays kitten soft. The butter cinnamon sugar and bread just harmonize like the Beatles.

For my Texas Burger I used Texas Toast. I had a bunch of it leftover so after a few tuna fish sandwiches I was down to a few extra pieces. I thought “cinnamon” toast was a perfect Saturday breakfast paired with some proper scrambled eggs. Since Jill likes Vanilla and I had some seldom used Penzey Spice’s “vanilla sugar” I played around with the cinnamon sugar mixture. I used about half and half sugar to vanilla sugar. My mix is on the maroon side because I go heavier on the cinnamon vs the sugar.

The other trick is to melt your butter so it soaks into the bread a bit before topping it with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Broil for about 4-6 minutes until it is bubbly, crackly shelled.
