The recipe is quite simple to make, and comprises ingredients that are easily available at home, such as onions, cheese, milk, and eggs.

  1. There’s no recipe. You get people all excited about its simplicity, even going as far as to lie about the recipe being available “if you read on”. It doesn’t ever come. It never was going to come. You people should feel bad for creating such frustration. Viking toast looks good. I wish you would have just told me how to make it.
