Milk Toast

Milk Toast was something my mom always made for me on weekends.  Similar to a Fondue or Welsh Rarebit, Milk Toast is a cheese sauce served over stale toasted (or just toasted) bread.  Unlike Fondue or Rarebit, which are a bit more “gourmet”, Milk Toast is a simple combination of Sliced American Cheese, Milk and black pepper.  Technically a breakfast dish, I’ll happily eat it for lunch or dinner too.  Some days I’ll have it for all three meals.  I also find it to be a great “morning-after” dish (if you know what I mean :) )

Here’s what you’ll need:

1/4 cup of milk (I use 2%)

4-6 slices of American Cheese (I like the deli style- not the stuff in the single serving plastic wrap)

Black Pepper to taste ( I use lots)

To Make:

Warm milk in a small saute pan over medium heat.  Once the milk starts to bubble, tear up the cheese and add it to the pan.  Stir until cheese melts, add black pepper and pour over a plate full of toasted stale bread.

enjoy, lick plate, repeat.

You could, of course, be a bit more healthful and serve with a sunny side up egg, some green veggies (asparagus, would be good) and fruit.  Or you could not ;)

I've always enjoyed making a mess in the kitchen. As a small child I used to sneak into the kitchen to make "rabbit stew" (this consisted of emptying my mom's spices into a large pot of water. Yeah, I was a great kid.) These days I spend my time in the kitchen cobbling together "what-ever-the-heck-you've-got casserole", pushing ethnic-inspired food on my husband and occasionally being called upon to feed the in-laws. I hope you enjoy trying these recipes in your own kitchen. Make sure you let me know what you like! If you want to find me elsewhere on the web- well good luck with that! I'm a baby blogger- this is my first foray into blog land (so let me know how I'm doing!). In real life I can often be found lurking amongst the stacks at local bookstores and libraries sipping on diet pepsi.
