Ruthie’s Culinary Clues

You may need to add extra butter to the skillet between batches when preparing this recipe. The toast is great made with thick slices of bread, but if you only have a loaf of sliced white bread on hand – go for it!  Serve with a dollop of extra butter syrup and add some crunched nuts or fruit.
