My mother used to make this for me all the time when I was little. When I asked her how she learned to make this she said, "My mother used to make it for me when I was little".
- Warm up a bowl of milk.
- Set aside.
- Toast your bread.
- Spread toasted bread with butter.
- Tear up the toast and drop it into the warm milk.
- Dunky, dunky.
- Sprinkle it with sugar or drizzle it with honey.
- Yum, yum.
My grandmother used to make this for me when I had an upset stomach, except that she didn't use the sugar or honey. I loved it! When my 3-year-old was sick over the winter, I made it for her and explained that her "great mom-mom" used to make it for me, but she still refused to try it. (That was OK with me, though...I got to eat it instead.) :o)
I haven't tried this yet, but my best friend's mom used to make it for her, and my friend loved it and what's really funny about it that it had another name, they used to call it "teddy bear" snack, and that's how i first heard her asking her mom to make it: " mom could you pls. make me a teddy bear?"
This is such a warm, comforting snack when it's cold outside. I couldn't tell you why it works but it just makes you feel better. Topped mine with a little mix of cinnamon and sugar.
