  1. Make sure the bread is stale, leave it out on a cookie sheet, to dry the day before.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Lightly grease baking sheet; set aside.
  3. In medium-sized bowl; whisk ingredients to blend and then fold in almonds or other nuts, if using.
  4. Dip or soak each slice well in egg/milk mixture. Soak throughly, about 5 minutes. Shake off excess liquid and then lay on cookies sheet.
  5. Arrange the slices in a single layer on the prepared cookie sheet and bake for 10-14 minutes, until medium golden brown and crusty on the top.(But still moist and custard-like in the middle).
  6. Serve warm with powdered sugar, sugar syrup, fruit syrup or maple syrup(tastes awesome with pineapple preserves with chopped macadamia nuts instead of almonds. Also, banana liqueur with banana slices & nuts).
  7. Enjoy, as you watch the scale's numbers increase!
