Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 5 servings
  • 10 thick slices of slightly stale white Italian bread (1-inch/2.5-cm thick)
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup vanilla dairy-free milk beverage (Emily uses almond milk)
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Pinch salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons oil, divided (Emily uses coconut oil)
  • Maple syrup, for dipping
  1. Cut the crust off the bread, then cut each piece into equal cubes. Spread half of the bread cubes onto a baking sheet or jelly roll pan.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, milk beverage, nutmeg, and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the sugar and cinnamon.
  4. Melt half the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Pour half of the milk mixture over the bread cubes on the baking sheet and moving quickly, toss to coat all of the pieces. Place the pieces in the preheated pan and cook, flipping as needed to brown on all sides, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Remove the bread cubes to the sugar mixture, and toss to coat each piece. Place the pieces on a serving plate.
  7. Repeat with process with the remaining bread cubes, egg mixture and cinnamon sugar.
  8. Serve immediately with maple syrup for dipping.
Oil Note: You can use your favorite cooking oil in place of the coconut oil, if desired. It will only slightly alter the underlying flavor, but won't otherwise affect the results.
