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.

10 slice
stale whole wheat & italian bread or bread of your choice
1 c
2% milk or whole if desired
8 large
eggs, room temperature
1 Tbsp
vanilla bean paste or extract
1 tsp
1/4 tsp
kosher salt
1/3 c
turbinado or regular sugar
non stick butter flavored cooking spray, or use regular
fresh fruit as desired, i used strawberries


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.
2Add 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.
3Pour egg mixture into flat bowl.
4Add bread slices to the dish with the egg mixture, be sure to coat bread on both sides.
5Remove 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.
6Serve with your favorite sides. Top with your favorite syrup and Butter while still hot. Or enjoy plain with butter.
