I’ve talked about my love of brunch before. I’ve also talked about my goal to reduce waste in our house, especially when it comes to food. Which basically makes this recipe for French Toast Bake the absolute best thing ever. Why? Because it’s French Toast for god’s sake AND because it uses up the heels of the bread that we never eat, therefor saving it from being thrown out or tossed in the compost bin.
That’s some seriously sanctimonious french toast right there.
Whenever we’re done with a loaf of bread, I take the ends and cut them into cubes and stick them in a bag labeled “bread bits” that I keep in our refrigerator. Once I have enough bread saved up, I turn it into French Toast Bake. It takes us a few weeks to stockpile enough bread cubes to make a batch, but it’s so worth it in the end.
And, hey, if you don’t feel like waiting that long, you could take half of a loaf of bread and cut it up. No judgement here. I’ve done it many o’ times myself.
