Hardly a day goes by without the social media celebration of some kind of food, but we couldn’t let National Toast Day go by. Every Aga owner knows that once you have tasted Aga toast nothing else makes the grade!

AGA toast is renowned for its excellence, crisp on the outside and soft in the centre.

Take thick slices of bread and place in the AGA toaster – if the bread is very moist or very fresh, heat the toaster beforehand to prevent sticking – lift the Boiling Plate insulated cover and place the toaster direct onto the plate with the handle at an angle from the handle of the cover. Close the cover and wait for the bread to toast one side – this will take 1-2 minutes dependent upon the variety of bread – open the cover and turn the toaster over and repeat the process to toast the other side

Serve piping hot with butter and marmalade. A great start to the day!
