Oh yeah, don’t even think you can get away with scraping off the burnt side of a toast. When this occurs, make your way to the trash can, look both ways and toss the evidence. Burning a piece of toast is a sign of many upcoming culinary disasters. Blame the skillet inability to cook evenly, the sales call you received and distracted you for a minute. It is better to start from scratch and maintain your culinary reputation intact. You must keep in mind that people will trust your cooking if you just toss it.
