How to Cut Toast

This odd chart by Stephen Wildish (previously at Neatorama) tells us all the ways you can cut toast. It seems amusingly OCD to assign names to each pattern, and do people really cut toast this many ways? Restaurants cut toast diagonally so the pieces fit aesthetically on a breakfast plate. I used to cut French toast into bite-size pieces with a pizza cutter when my kids were small. Mainly, I just tear mine in half at the breakfast table, or I eat toast whole at my desk (preferably in a bacon sandwich). Now I wonder if I am supposed to cut my kids' sandwiches in half before packing them in their lunch -one child prefers toasted bread. Do you cut your toast? Which of these patterns do you use? -via Foodbeast

I always cut my sandwiches corner to corner. I don't know why, it's just the only one that feels "right". When we make eggs over medium, I cut toast into soldiers to dip them into the eggs. Delicious!

I cut my toast in the "Mini Toast Rack" style, but my family calls it "butterflies". I cut my PB&J sammies (thank you, Rachael Ray!) that way too, but I cut my ham n' cheese sammies again, in the "Squares" pattern, ending up with 8 bite-sized sections.
