The Nancy Drew Cookbook

Available via Amazon.com
 This recipe is from the classic cookbook titled The Nancy Drew Cookbook (Carolyne Keene, Grosset & Dunlap, 1973).

This cookbook is subtitled, "Clues to Good Cooking." According to the introduction, "How can you become a really good cook? 'It's no mystery,' Nancy Drew reveals, 'You must do what fine cooks have always done - add your own special touch.'"

"How do you do this? Let Nancy show you how. Who would be more intrigued to be an adventurer in cooking than a girl who loves to solve mysteries!"

This recipe - the first in The Nancy Drew Cookbook - from the chapter "Time for Breakfast" features "A Hint From Nancy" which reads, "Buy uncut whole wheat bread for this recipe. Then you can make the slices as thick as you like." It's an interesting Nancy Drew mystery as to why the instructions mention white bread and the hint recommends wheat bread.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.
