French toasts1 are really delicious and they help to take advantage of leftover bread. In fact, you'd rather cook these toasts with stale bread. It absorbs mixture better than fresh one. Traditional French toast is made from bread, which is a day old, but it does not mean that you cannot use slices of a just bought loaf.
