This should probably be in the Diner Pantry, given it is a Cooking Theme, however I will leave it here in the Kitchen Sink for now.

Proper Toasting of this sort is like Toasting Marshmallows at the Campfire.  You don't want to get the Marshmallow so close to the fire it Ignites and gets all black and crusty, you want it to be just close enough so it takes a long time to roast before you eat it off the stick.  It should be all gooey and sliding down the stick in Marshmallow Agony before consumption.

WRONG!  Too Close!


RIGHT! Better Distance

You guessed right!

When toasting the world's most expensive bread, one must always use the world's most expensive toaster.

Dualit, is introducing a 24 Carat Gold toaster -- £1,000. 
-- http://www.dailystar.co.uk/tech/news/408281/Dualit-24-Carat-Gold-toaster-on-sales-Selfridges

But to make the world's Greatest Toast, you need to toast it in what was once one of the world's most expensive houses -- a house so valuable that it had to be torn down!  (Really. Look it up.)

It’s a tale that’s now coming to a sad end: That $100 million mansion, once the most expensive home in America, has become its most expensive tear-down. Not a single trace of the compound remains, and soon even its address will disappear: The 6.3-acre estate on which it stood has been broken into three parcels, and one of them has already sold.

Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/news/business/article135187364.html#storylink=cpy

As you see, if you're going to be making Trump Toast, you need to be very place-conscious about where you're going to plug in your Most Expensive Toaster.

It will have to be on one of the three parcels of land divided up on the Most Expensive Tear-down real-estate ever.  If you're going to be making American toast great again, it's crucial that you are attentive to details.

To get this recipe Just Right, you'll be needing a good hammer for a ritualistic re-enactment of the Most Expensive Tear-down.  In this ritual Toast, there can be no short-cuts.

If you think this hammer is adequate, you'll need to think again.

The Toast we're making here is So much Greater than ordinary!  We need our hammer to smash a Most Expensive Diamond into gains of such fine dust that they can be dusted atop our Trump Toast without harm to the teeth or digestive systems of the diner (or Diner).

When our diamond (emerald, saphire...) comes under this hammer, both the hammer and the gem must be extraordinary to the ultimate extent. Ideally, we'd have a gem like this one.:

At $735.00 (American), this hammer is almost good enough for the job.  But c'mon! We can do better than that, right?

Oh, no!  That's not even close!  That's a total trailer trash approach to toast!

What shall we slather upon our toast, once it'd good and expensively toasted?

Okay, we'll get to gourmet slathering later.

This hammer is tooooo soft.   Pentagon’s $435 hammer -- We can do much better than that!

As we search for an Appropriate Hammer, let us take a little tour of Great Toast....


'Virgin Mary' toast fetches $28,000
A piece of cheese on toast purportedly showing the Virgin Mary
The toast is not intended for consumption
A decade-old toasted cheese sandwich said to bear an image of the Virgin Mary has sold on the eBay auction website for $28,000.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/4034787.stm

That's for old and stale toast!  We Can Do Better than that.

Justin T's Toast was nothing special by comparison, at a mere $1,025.


Quote
"Our most burning question yet! Who the heck would pay $1,025 for two slices of singed French Toast? That’d be ‘N Sync fan Kathy Summers, 19. The bread in question was left behind on March 9 by Justin Timberlake when he finished a breakfast interview at the studio of New York-area radio station Z-100. Its DJ put the toast on eBay, where Summers won a heated bidding war. ”I’ll probably freeze-dry it, then seal it…then put it on my dresser,” says the Madison, Wis.-based student. Meanwhile, the chef wants to know why Timberlake neglected the morning confection: ”He didn’t like them?” Timberlake is mum, but Summers says the slices ”look a little bit on the burnt side.”

More on expensive toast later.   What we'll be needing very soon is an expensive toast rack to put our expensive toast upon, right?

Quote
You know what they say about breakfast being the most important meal of the day? Then there is that evergreen quote, “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.” But breakfasting like a king requires special items, like the most expensive toast rack in the world. This beautiful breakfast accessory comes with a price tag of £1,000 – about $1,597. Even if you had that kind of money to spare, would you be willing to spend it on, of all things, a toast rack? Then again, if you want to dine like royalty, that is a small price to pay.
