    Larry E Vaughn's Note:

    This dish has been a long time favorite at our bed & breakfast, because of its unique combination of flavors and delightful presentation. A great dish when your goal is an elegant dish with outstanding flavor. Stale bread absorbs more of the mixture than fresh bread, and will have a better flavor throughout the slice. I prefer to skillet poach the toast to give it more eye appeal, but it can be baked at 350 degrees for 50 minutes as an alternative if you need more slices ready at one time. I serve this entrée nested on a drizzle of raspberry sorbe, with maple flavored sausage links and garnish the plate with orange and green fruit or veggies. YUMMY!
