If you’ve ever wondered about that thick, buttery slice of perfection accompanying your meal, you’re in for a treat! At Dairy Dip Diner in Van Buren and Mulberry, we take pride in presenting the delectable delight known as Texas toast. Join us on a journey into the origins and unique characteristics that make this toast a star on our menu.
What Is Texas Toast?
Texas toast isn’t your average sliced bread—it’s a scrumptious delight prepared with precision. Sliced at a generous thickness of almost an inch, double the size of standard white bread, it’s a game-changer. Before hitting the grill or skillet, both sides are generously buttered, resulting in a crunchy outside that elevates any meal.
But here’s the twist—while most breads toast completely, Texas toast boasts an almost moist and soft inside. This adds an extra layer of indulgence, making it perfect for everything from breakfast to stuffed French toast or garlic bread.
A Slice of History
The roots of Texas toast trace back to the Pig Stand, a 1940s drive-in-style restaurant that dared to go big. A Beaumont, Texas location supposedly ordered thicker bread to impress customers but faced a toasting dilemma. The oversized slices wouldn’t fit in the toasters, leading to a brilliant solution—butter and grill on both sides. The result? A menu sensation that quickly spread to other establishments, becoming a Texas culinary icon.
