I made this delicious brunch item using leftover stale whole wheat & Italian Bread. I read a post by Susan F. here at Just A Pinch, where she made some but they disappeared before she could take a picture. This is my version.

I was out of town & this was a perfect way to use stale bread for today's Brunch. I also made Irish Bangers & Irish Bacon as well as Sausage Patties. It made everyone happy. I used Vanilla Bean Paste to add extra flavor. I served fresh Strawberries also. Everyone made happy plates, so it was enjoyed by the entire family. It is quick. simple & easy, hope you like it.

Ingredients

10 slice
stale whole wheat & italian bread or bread of your choice

2% milk or whole if desired
8 large

vanilla bean paste or extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Please note that I used 2 types of bowls, a flat dish to dip the bread slices into, and a round bowl to whisk all the ingredients together. Had to add the eggs to a round bowl, to blend more evenly.
2
Add the eggs to the round bowl, add in the vanilla Bean paste, milk, salt, cinnamon, & sugar, then whisk together till completely blended. PREHEAT GRIDDLE IRON, AND SPRAY both top & bottom WITH NON STICK COOKING SPRAY.
3
Pour egg mixture into flat bowl.
4
Add bread slices to the dish with the egg mixture, be sure to coat bread on both sides.
5
Remove bread with slotted spatula onto hot griddle. Lower lid and press down slightly, and brown till golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Repeat until all of the slices are cooked.
6
Serve with your favorite sides. Top with your favorite syrup and Butter while still hot. Or enjoy plain with butter.
