: Cut the bread into thick slices, about 1 inch thick.
: Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat.
: Once the skillet is hot, add a tablespoon of butter or oil to the skillet.
: Place the bread slices in the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, until golden brown.
: Remove the toast from the skillet and serve with honey or jam, if desired.
To make the toast even more “Viking-like,” you could also try rubbing the bread with garlic before cooking, or dipping it in a mixture of beaten eggs and milk before frying (similar to French toast). Additionally, you could serve the toast with traditional Viking accompaniments such as smoked salmon, pickled herring, or cured meats. Enjoy!
