  • 8 slices white bread ($0.80)
  • 1/4 cup butter ($0.32)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar ($0.16)
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon ($0.58)


  • Mix cinnamon and sugar together in a bowl until well combined.
  • Preheat broiler to get it hot
  • Lightly Toast Bread in the toaster (Optional Step, but necessary if you like your cinnamon toast crispy on both sides.)
  • Spread about 1 ½ teaspoons butter on each slice of toast (Don't really measure it. Just coat the bread with butter.)
  • Liberally sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the buttered toast, Getting it out to the edges. (You should be using about 1 tbsp per slice of toast--don't measure it--just guess-timate.)
  • Arrange prepared slices of bread in a single layer and place under the broiler for 2 to 5 minutes until the sugar is melted and shiny. Watch them carefully, so they don't burn. I like to use a sheet of foil because melted sugar can be difficult to remove from my baking pans.
  • WARNING!: Allow to cool slightly (for about two minutes) out of the oven before serving. Melted sugar is very hot and sticky and it will burn the inside of your mouth.
