That stereogram? It’s toast

There was a time in the 90s when kids learnt to stare into blank space with the help of these Magic Eye pictures. Also known as stereograms, the fun was in making out the 3D optical illusions from within these 2D images. Now that a stereogram has invaded this piece of toast, which in turn has invaded the Internet, and now your computer screen, the question is: Do you see toast, or do you see more than toast? And the next question, naturally, is: How do we get a stereogram on our toast?
