10 – 12 slices stale French bread
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
Slice the French bread before it is stale, otherwise the crust crumbles and the bread slices lose the crust. Mix eggs, vanilla, and sugar. Place one slice of stale bread in the egg batter until the bread has "soaked up" the batter, about 15 minutes. Then fry the soaked slices on hot, oiled griddle. Fry the bread about 2 minutes on each side. Remove and sprinkle with confectioner's sugar and serve while warm.
