Sops or Soppes

Pieces of bread over which a soup or broth is poured. Although this manner of service, once commonplace, is now rare or extinct in England, where it has evolved into things-on-toast, a variant continues to be offered in Canada as 'hot sandwich with gravy'.

Some receipts including sops include:
Chickens with Lettuce
Milk Soup
Oil Soup
Tripe with Spinach
Poultry with Citrus Sauce
Marrow Toast
Red Herring

Many more references will be found in old cookbooks such as:
The Accomplisht Cook, 1660
The Forme of Cury, 1390
The Closet of Sir Kenelm Digby, 1669
The Compleat Cook, 1658
