1 cup milk, 1 tablespn. sugar

2 or 3 eggs, salt, slices of stale bread

Cut slices of bread into desired shape and size; soak in mixture of milk, eggs and sugar until moistened, not soft; lay in hot buttered pan and brown delicately in quick oven; serve at once with fresh fruit, jelly, marmalade or suitable fruit or pudding sauce.

2 whites of the 3 eggs may be left out and beaten stiff with sugar and some fruit marmalade or jelly and used as a sauce. Drained canned peaches or apricots, rubbed through a colander and beaten well make a nice sauce, especially with a little whipped cream. Even nicely stewed apples are good.
