We used french bread to go along with our delicious cauliflower soup on Monday, but this was an easy way to get rid of the remaning bread.
1/2 cup milk
1 T sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
I heated on medium, about 2 T of butter. I soaked each piece of thinly sliced french bread for about 30 seconds on each side, and then cooked it until brown on each side. Sifted some powder sugar over it (with my tea bag holder haha.. you gotta make due with what you have!), enveloped it in syrup, and served it to my boys. It would have been nice to have fruit garnishes, alas we didn't.
