My method is not dry yet it is the bomb. I carry a Weber wire grill from one of their barbecues, about 15 inches across (someone left it, my score) and place it across the coals of the morning fire. Then take one of those classic blue camping metal bowls, put a little olive oil in the bottom, and spread peanut butter and strawberry jam on the top of some Dave’s Killer bread, put it in the bowl, cover it and cook until you get the desired toastiness. The peanut butter and jam get all warm and melty, a gooey delicious mess. Man, I’m hungry for some cowboy toast!

Home Made

I like my toast crispy. I have found that the 4 slice camp stove toasters don't toast very evenly and it takes a long time to get crispy - usually more dry than cripsy. My preference is the home made version using a coffee can with holes punched in the bottom and wires strung over the open top. A shortened can works best. It is fast, even on a typical RV stove, so you have to watch it closely. This one I actually bought at a garage sale and is my favorite.

Go old school! Easy - no space required.

For many years, my mom would simply pop a piece of bread on each of our marshmallow sticks. While she was in the camper frying bacon and scrambling the eggs, each kid was carefully turning their toast over the campfire until our toast reached the perfect (in our opinion) stage of perfection. In the event you don't want to build a campfire first thing in the morning, pop that piece of bread on a long wooden handled meat fork. Hold it over one burner while you fry up your bacon and eggs over the other. Works great! Takes up no space.

Portuguese frying pan/toaster

This Portuguese p an/toaster has ribs, works for me but you have to be quick and watch it. I tried the old burner toasters and did not like them.

And maybe most people would not like this but I like it.

The style of toaster shown at the top dates back to some used over burners in home stoves a hundred years ago... they work, in spite of jokes about burnt fingers. Also, since the wire frames fold down the unit packs away into about the same space as a plate. Toast is important to making a complete breakfast, so that little device is a welcome addition to my cooking supplies.

Exactly! I was just checking out our Scamp, first time I’ve been in it since we bought it last October. I noticed the melted knob over the back burner. Did I read somewhere on the forum about retrofitting something slightly smaller?

I've used both and much prefer the box-type one shown in the photo. It just works much better, I think.
Sorry, I was referring to the second photo in Raz's post #7.

Marshmallow fork?

While I AM a member of the "sisterhood," and I prefer the frying pan with butter method, I think you could put bread on a marshmallow fork and toast it over the flames...

I recall as a lad our family tried using that coleman toaster thingy, more often than not ended up with an inedible dried-out husk of bread. I like toast, but not enough to go though all that hassle.

Also not a coffee drinker. I get to relax and enjoy the morning sun while everyone else is slaving away making coffee and toast.

Dry toast

It’s easy to make toast in a well seasoned cast iron pan or non stick pan. Just heat up the pan and cook your bread dry till it’s brown the way you like it.

I have a small piece of soapstone that I use the take the chill off the Scamp without using the heater. It can also be used as a griddle so I may try it for toast and see how it goes!

I roast all of my own coffee when I am at home. If I'm camping alone I make one cup at a time using freshly hand ground coffee and an aeropress. If I am making multiple cups I use hand ground and the Chemex. Of course the Chemex has to be packaged well to protect it. Either way I heat the water on the stove. (Photo of coffee kit added)



I'm not a big toast eater but my gf is and when she travels with me she's all about the testing the various toasting methods. I think she has one of those wire type things. I can't say how well it works but she seems happy.


If you want a real solar toaster just get a big magnifying glass and a couple of passes in direct sunlight over the bread... viola! (yes I'm mostly joking.)

Years ago in elementary school, my son, now an electrical and computer engineer did a science project entitled “Can you pop corn with sunlight and a magnifying glass?”

Long story short, no. The kernels will partially cook and puff out but the entire kernel does not heat enough to cause the internal moisture to “explode.” Your joke reminded me of his experiment.

And this is what the “early” stove top toasters looked like.

Toaster ovens are not good for cooking toast as that they cook it too slowly and the toast ends up being dried out. A$7.99 toaster from Walmart is the best way to go. Assuming you have electricity.

Again the toaster oven dry is it out and takes too long, plus the hassle of turning it over Midway putting on a timer

In a pinch, use a fork. Weave it into bread, hold over flame. Cost nothing extra, unless you only have plastic.
