Toasters are overrated. What you've really got to do with bread is rub it with garlicky oil and toast it on a hot grill until it's charred and smoky. Then, top it with an herby pesto and a dollop of a lemony cream. If you don't have the energy to make the pesto yourself, sub in the store-bought variety. The grilled bread is where you should be directing your energy. Get the recipe on Food52.
