Sometimes I'll have extra homemade bread when I'm ready to make another batch. Just because I feed my starter doesn't mean I make some, but if I just have a loaf left, it's time.
But nobody wants to eat the old loaf if new fresh ones are available.
That's an excellent time to make French Toast.
Today I had two loaves left when I made new bread, and the kids and I ate most of one for lunch as fresh French Toast. Then I went ahead and sliced the other one up like I normally would for French Toast, then sliced each individual slice from side to side into two pieces.
I put them on wax paper on a cookie sheet when they had cooled some, then I placed them in the freezer to let them harden without sticking together before I put them in a Ziploc bag.
I took two slices, put them on a microwave plate, and cooked them for one minute. They were good and hot.
The only way you can tell the difference between frozen and cooked is the little bit of frost on the side in the above picture. The bottom one had been in the microwave.
Top with some powdered sugar.
After you're finished taking pictures, put more powdered sugar on because you have an obsession with all things sugar, and you didn't want it to come through in the picture. You could use syrup instead.
