Baked Milk Toast

Trim the crust from some slices of bread cut of medium thickness and toast the bread lightly on both sides, and then butter thinly. Lay the slices in a pudding dish in which it is to be served, sprinkling each slice with a little salt, and pour over as much milk as the dish will hold. If there is hurry the milk may be heated before being used, but if not cold milk will answer. Cover the dish, set it in oven and bake it for 20 minutes. Uncover it and brown lightly on top.
