Goulash (Gulyás in Hungarian, meaning cattle stockmen) is a dish from the Hungarian cuisine. Here is one very simple Goulash stew recipe, being pretty close to the idealised version. It is important not to use hot paprika, use the red powder sold simply as "paprika" in most supermarkets instead, hot peppers (chilli) would make the soup too spicy and of the wrong consistency when used exclusively. They can be used for flavouring in various degrees instead. Sweet paprika can be obtained from Polish or central European delicatessens and specialist supermarkets. It is normally sold in 250 g sachets.

French toast is a common breakfast item made by frying a piece of bread soaked in an egg batter. French toast was developed as a way to use day-old stale bread. When lacking stale bread, toasting your bread lightly will help it absorb more of the egg and milk batter.
