Cheap French Toast Casserole

This inexpensive casserole is made with the end pieces from several different loafs of bread. That’s right, this meal came together with parts of the loaf of bread that typically get thrown away!!! This my friends is a PERFECT example of ZERO FOOD WASTE!!! Do no throw food away food that can be used for another meal.

 Once you have a good amount of bread ends (or if you can’t wait you can use a regular loaf of bread), take them all out of your freezer and let them thaw out. Once they are thawed, cube them and put them in a greased baking dish. I would say you need about 6 cups of cubed bread, that is an estimate.

When all the bread is in your baking dish, just sprinkle the top with cinnamon and then make your wet mixture. This dish is beautiful and my kids absolutely love it!

It’s only 5 ingredients, which is the best part! Seriously friends, 5 ingredients!!!! So cheap and so good! Enjoy!
