dry fry in a non stick frying pan

be careful, they can "catch" quickly

drain on kitchen paper

Yes - put them in a dry frying pan on a medium heat and keep tossing them about. Don't walk away or they'll burn. Only takes a couple of minutes - you'll see them change colour.

Dry fry them. Put them in a frying pan on a medium heat. Keep turning them and don't leave them for a second -they burn very fast. You want them light brown

They burn very quickly, you can do them under the grill but go very slowly and watch them all the time. Waitrose sell pre-toasted ones in there 'cooks ingredients' section...obviously more expensive but to be honest I've burnt so many in the past I save money by buying the pre-toasted!
