The toast sandwich provides about 330 calories. The recipe has been picked up from Mrs. Beeton's Book of Household Management. The book turned out to be a best-seller 150 years ago and this recipe was created to mark its anniversary coming next month.

The society has declared to offer 200 pounds to anyone who can create a cheaper alternative.
