French toast in bite size form! These are really fun to make - you "sauté" them as though they are cubes of tofu or chicken, then toss in cinnamon sugar. And it goes without saying they are also fun to eat! They taste like mini cinnamon sugar doughnuts. :)
1. I really recommend using slightly stale bread for this so the bread doesn't soak up too much egg mixture (which results in the inside of the french toast being soggy raw egg) AND they will hold their cube shape better when "sautéing" them. The best bread to use is a block loaf which you can cut into the desired thickness. This can be made with pre sliced bread but because the slices won't be 1"/2.5cm thick, the french toast won't be "cubes" (or they will be very small cubes!).
But if you don't mind what shape they come out as, you can use any bread you want for this (though personally breads with grains in it isn't to my taste for this dish). I've made this with sourdough, leftover baguettes and even mixing up scraps of different types of leftover bread.
2. The thickness of each slice of bread is about the equivalent of 2 slices of sandwich bread. But you cut the crusts off so you lose a bit of bread. So this recipe serves around 3 people, or 4 people watching their calorie intake, or 2 extremely hungry people / people who lack self control around doughnuts. :)
