From an old 1979 issue of Southern Living. My 21 year old son still requests this treat often.

I made these for a brunch and they were gone in no time! I loved the fact that I could make them a few days in advance and freeze them. I ended up using white bread instead of the mixed grain but I'm sure the mixed grain tastes better. I baked them for 30 minutes and then broiled them for a moment just to toast the bread a golden brown. I think I will serve this at my next brunch as well!
Easy and delicious. Very impressive looking for guests and family. These were the first to disappear at my family reunion this past weekend! Will definitely make this one again and again and again......
I had this recipe years ago but lost it and have been making it from faulty memory! I was so glad to see it here.
