Spin off on toast

What bread do you like the best for toasting?

The other thread on toast mentioned "oat nut" bread and Wonder several times. What other specific brand name breads do you like? I like the big round Turano loaf toasted.

Also, do you like a light toast or a dark toast? I like it dark, especially with thick bread or bagels!

    my favourite bread for toast is "limpa" as we call it here in sweden it has rye and wheat flour and molasses or brown sugar.. so its kinda sweet but not to sweet.. i normally eat it with butter and a slice of ham or cheese..

      Milton's The Original Healthy Multi-Grain Plus Bread is the best I used to buy it at Costco. Haven't been in awhile, but all of their products are great.

        If you live where there is a Hispanic market look for the little loaves of Mexican bread that sell 3 x $1 called bolillos. This bread makes the most amazing toast, very shattery and light---obviously wonderful for croutons too.

          For toast, I like a nice dense white bread. If I'm eating out, I order it "burned."

            I know what you mean! I often order sourdough toast with breakfast when in the US, because we don't have it here in México. Sourdough takes longer to toast. I ask for "sourdough, and be sure it is BROWN," and they usually bring something like dried out pale bread, not even tan! I have to send it back for a 2nd run through the toaster about 80% of the time. Here at home, my usual morning toast is Bimbo Multigrano con Linaza (flax seed). Makes really good toast. (Did you know that Bimbo is one of the biggest food conglomerates in the world, and owns labels such as Wonderbread and Oroweat and dozens more in Canada and Europe? It pleases me when Mexican corporations make the big time.)

            To the other great suggestions here, I'll add: toasted cinnamon-raisin bagel with butter, crunchy outside, soft interior.

              I love Turano, specifically their whole grain wheat (the seeds gets nice and crisped in the toaster--also really good for a grilled cheese). I used to work at a cafe and could order an extra, very fresh, loaf to take home.

              I default to rye bread, though. The smell alone makes me realize I was hungrier than I thought.

                sliced sourdough, toasted cripsy is my favorite.

                  +1 on the sour dough. I like mine golden brown though.

                    Oh, yes, sour dough, and rye, which I mentioned in the toast thread, golden brown, not too crispy, somewhere between crispy and a lttle soggy with butter. Cinnamon raisin bread, toasted, and Brioche makes fine toast, no butter needed.
