If you are in Germany, I suggest you go to Lidl, they sell loaves of white square bread slices, fit for making the plain old fashioned toast you are talking about. Also large in size, too!! It should be easily spotted, it is called something like "american sandwich" or something like that, with strident blue and red design on the plastic wrapping bag. You will like Lidl, I am sure you will find oodle of goodies at very good prices!!

In case you are being serious.

Take a slice of bread. Put it in the toaster. Two or three minutes later..... up pops TOAST.

After reading the messages some more I think you are talking about French Toast. It is easy to make.

3 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
8 slices of bread

In bowl beat eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and salt with wire whisk until well mixed. Pour into shallow bowl. Heat griddle over medium heat. Grease griddle with vegetable oil, if necessary. Dip bread into egg mixture. Place on griddle. Cook about 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

It's interesting that in the UK, the French toast recipe we use is a savoury dish - no sugar, vanilla etc. Most little children here grow up calling it 'Eggy Bread'!

Ishbel, I am still not sure if French Toast is what Susi was referring to, but I figured I would at least try to give her an answer. I like the name of Eggy Bread. It sounds more fun.
