Another “tidbit” from Memory Lane, is that old fashioned recipe, Milk Toast. I did a little research on this one, “just checking” to see how my grandmother’s recipe held up. Her recipe was as follows: toast WHITE store bought bread, meanwhile heat just enough milk to cover the bottom of your saucepan, bring it to a simmer, turn off. Ever so slightly butter the toast, I do a dash of salt as well, pour the milk over. This recipe will cure what ails you. Well, maybe it won’t, but it’s great comfort food, all the on line recipes and dictionaries agree, despite the recipes each being a little bit different. Mark my words though, the next time you don’t feel good, try it. Grandma will come into your heart and you will feel much better.
Here are a few links so you can see the variations of this recipe. While you might be tempted to just glance at one, it is rather interesting to note them. There are many more variations on the recipe.
So, next time you don’t feel good, whip up some milk toast and let Grandmother take over!
