I make a point of saving my leftover bread just so I can make this family-favorite recipe. Kids will have fun helping you prepare it, but will enjoy eating this sticky "scrambled" version of French toast even more!

"I really like the taste, it has just the right amount of sweetness. I don't think I will make the cubes again, instead will use thick slices of bread and put it on the griddle. I had a difficult time using the skillet; a lot of the cubed bread turned to mush when turning them. Or I may dip several cubes in the liquid and put in pan to cook. I will make this again, I'm just not sure in which form, cubes or thick slices."
