My church has a bread table provided by a local grocery store. When the bread products get close to their sell by date, the store gives it to churches and charities in the area. Its a great idea since it would be thrown out otherwise. So after service you can look and see if there is a bread, sweet or savory that you may want to give a good home.

This week I saw a absolutely gorgeous loaf of Challah(jewish egg bread) that I couldnt pass up. It sat on my counter for a few days until it was almost at the throw out stage. Me being the kind hearted soul that I am, I couldnt let this bread come close to missing its lifes purpose for a second time. So I made its last day on earth a good one....
French Toast

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 c. half and half
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • splash of vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • your favorite sliced bread(challah, french ect)
  • margarine or butter (for frying)

Melt 2 tbsp of margarine or butter in a skillet over medium heat .In a bowl, combine all ingredients to create a custard. Dip and coat both sides of sliced bread in custard. Lay slices of coated bread in skillet. Fry for aproximately 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side. Keep an eye on them so they dont burn faster than they cook.

Once cooked, top with your favorites! Strawberries and whipped cream with maple syrup are favorites in our house :)

Happy Eating

LOVE! I did the same thing once with the almost hard publix bread once. It was so crusty I was really intending on using it for breadcrumbs but I had so much leftover that I didn't want to go to waste so I made french toast of it and it was prolly the BEST french toast I ever had!!!!
