Hi all Wave A bit of good sausage news. Meanwhile, I am sad that Conroy's coffee shop has closed in Corporation Street. Sad I am further saddend because I know how much my friend Janet enjoyed her coffee there.

I keep seeing things on the internet about what is now called "French Toast" described as “bread dipped in egg and fried". When I was growing up we had something we called French toast which was slices of bread and butter stuck together and toasted and a bit more butter on top, lovely. It was usually if there was any bread and butter (or marg ) left over from tea time, always there "to fill up with". We were lucky as there was always a plentiful supply of Sunblest as dad worked at Suttons. Did any one else have this or was it just us. I also can't see that the eggy bread thing can be called toast if it is fried! Edited by member, 22nd Sep 2019 2:51 pm

Annewiggy, Correct, we were eating that in Coventry when I was three (1930) have no fears, we fried pratically everything in lard or dripping, it was delicious. Despite what the doctors say today, here am I. We never were fussy about the right words, or places, we all knew and understood each other whatever. It was making a French bed that annoyed me.

Thanks for confirming that Kaga. Yes, one of my favourite things was dripping on toast, had to have a bit of the brown jelly and salt. Still have it occasionally if I cook anything to make it, and we are still here!

We grew up calling it Egg Dip, eggy bread or gypsy toast. We had plenty of bread too, my dad worked at Savages. Happy days!

Thumbs up Annewiggy, Just couldn't let this pass as up here in the north of England (Wigan) we've eaten it all our lives. With living through the war years and being seven children, nothing went to waste in our house. I still do eat left overs on French toast Try this Anne, you can get the toast bags from the pound shop Wink Get four slices of bread, place two on a plate, fill with cheese and place in microwave till soft, get any leftovers, place on top of cheese then put the other two pieces of bread on top, turn them over and place in bag, then put into the toaster Big grin Thumbs up
