    2. 2
      Using a rolling pin or a glass, starting at the bottom edge, roll bread to flatten. Spread one side of each slice evenly with butter. Gently press butter-side up into pan or ramekins, pleating bread on two sides to fit and making 4 points above edge of pan.

      Bake for 5 minutes until toasted.
