I've heard that called "Texas Toast", but it sounds to me like what
the Irish call fried bread... of course the bread may be different.

Master A,  you may be reading this differently than I am . . . I  
think of
toasted and then buttered rather than browned in butter.  I think the  
Toast", though, is a play on the big piece of bread and everything  
big in
Texas theme.  The Texas Toast is getting thinner and thinner in GA these

Yes, Niccolo is describing what I had in mind. I said browned and  
buttered since that is how it is usually served in restaurants. I  
probably should have said "toasted" rather than browned. I couldn't  
remember if they sell this thick sliced bread in the store named as  
"Texas Toast" or something else. I suspect that Niccolo may also be  
right in the idea that the name comes from the slices being bigger. I  
guess "Alaskan Toast" would have a different marketing image, even  
though it would fit the "larger" image.
