Looking for a way to take a repeat-dinner to the next level? Instead of plain old bread and butter, fill that bread basket with Cheesy Texas Toast! So easy to do and it makes the “same old – same old” special again.
Quite recently I opted to serve Texas toast alongside spaghetti and meatballs. We love pasta with sauce and have it often. 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. 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.
