Notes

To freeze for later: let them cool to room temperature and then stick in a freezer bag for whenever you or the kids need a quick breakfast! They can be heated up in the toaster until warmed through! Or, you can heat them up in the microwave in short bursts, until warmed through.

If you are using bread for this that is very soft and delicate, like brioche bread or traditional white bread, you might want to toast or let the bread dry out first! If the bread is very soft and stays too long in the egg batter, it can start to break apart.
