How to Toast Bread in the Oven

  • 6 slices whole meal bread Note 1

How to Toast Bread in the Oven

  • Preheat your oven to 180°C / 350-375°F / Gas Mark 4-5
  • Lay bread slices flat on lined baking tray and spray with cooking oil
  • Place baking tray into the oven and toast bread for 10 mins (colour will be golden and texture firm to the touch). Note 3
  • Flip bread after 5 mins using kitchen tongs and toast other side (if desired)
  • Serve immediately or once cool store in sealed plastic container for later use


  • Note 1 This is my favourite bread to toast but you can choose your favourite! Try multigrain, sourdough, rye, a baguette (french stick)
  • Note 2 I have used a variety of cooking sprays during my cooking years. There is much of a muchness to them. Basically, cheap is ok, olive oil or canola is ok and don't use it near a gas stove top at all. 
  • Note 3 The colour and texture are the best ways to tell that the bread is toasted. Use an oven mit to slide the baking tray out and gently press the tip of a finger onto the bread slice, it will bounce back once you lift your finger when ready.
