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.

Step 1 Direction Photo

1Please 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.
