Cockney rhyming slang - holy ghost

The Cockney lingo often seems to not be too bothered by offending anyone, historically a number of rhyming slang phrases were racist or sexist if not more offensive.

I'm not sure that anyone would be too offended by holy ghost being used to refer to toast (the toasted bread oft used as part of a breakfast meal).

Anyway let's use it in a sentence:
"I fancy a nice bit of holy and a bit of stand at" which translates to "I have a craving for a piece of toast and cheese"
