      This worked fairly well. The bread needs to soak up quite a bit of custard to be able to get the almonds to adhere. It has to be watched very carefully in the pan - it went from pale to almost burnt in under 60 seconds, and I had the heat just below medium. Next time, I might play with the proportions on the custard - I spilled a lot down the drain, and it didn't need that much dairy.
