    SilentCricket's Note:

    If you're not feeling 100% and would like something simple to eat, this may be just what the doctor ordered. My husband had this when he was growing up and didn't feel well...(I'd be tempted to use sugar instead of the salt, and raisins could be optional...)

      This is a great meal on a cold day or any day for that matter. My father would never throw food out so if there was stale bread or biscuts it was milk toast the next day. He would heat up the milk with a little butter and salt and pepper to taste and toast the bresd or biscuts poor milk over and enjoy. It is good weather you are sick or not. Also if you have a cake on the stale side of life a little warm milk poured over that is really good.

      My Mom was definitely a down home cook and overcooked all meat but you cannot overcook milk toast and I always asked for it when I was sick. We didn't have it with raisins and now I cannot have milk but I think I'll make this recipe tomorrow with almond milk. Thank you, Silent, for the memories.

      Just like my best friend's mom used to make when we weren't feeling well. It's supposed to be very wet, so you can still swallow it with a very sore throat. And very bland, so you can still eat it even if you don't want to touch food. My daughter wasn't feeling well and wouldn't have anything to do with food, but I gave her this with a little brown sugar and skipped the raisins. If you're trying to coax the kid back to eating this is a good starting point. And I like it when I feel fine, too. ;)
