1/2 c. milk
3 c. shortening
2 slices bread, cut 1 1/2 inches thick, crusts trimmed, then cut diagonally to form triangular shaped pieces
Beat eggs well, then mix in the milk and beat again. Dip bread slices in egg and milk mixture. (It is not necessary to soak the bread, although this can be done according to preference.) Fry in hot shortening (about 3 cups of shortening in medium sized fry pan.) Brown on both sides. Drain the cooked toast. Sprinkle liberally with confectioners sugar. Serve hot. Simple but superb!
