Texas Toast – an easy and delicious recipe that’s ready in under 15 minutes

I had already prepared Spaghetti Pie Casserole just days before but hadn’t tired of sauce. Come to think of it, we had just had our favorite Chicken Chilindron, too.Texas Toast – an easy and delicious recipe that’s ready in under 15 minutes How was I going to sell the family on sauce again so soon? I thought. “Oh yes, Cheesy Texas Toast will do it! And it did.
