I used to host ladies' coffee parties, and I would often serve tea sandwiches. Well, I would always have tons of leftover bread crusts after making the sandwiches and thought it was so wasteful to just toss them. So I devised a way to make use of them. I most often used plain old plastic sandwich white bread for those tea sandwiches, so that is usually what I use in this recipe.(It is also just great using more than the crusts, of course.) A great way to use up extra bread. There is no sauce included with this recipe..I prefer it plain or drizzled with just a bit of syrup. You can use other types of dried fruit if you like, such as dried berries and different jelly, just make sure the jelly isn't terribly oversweet.
