Breakfast Panzaella

Lark's Country Heart
I had some "day old bread" just begging me to do something with it. So of course I had to think up something. I had also just bought some fresh fruit. So this is what I created. It was so good! Perfect way to start the day. Even My "picky" eater's loved the combination.

8 C. Day old Bread or Plain Croutons
1 Stick of Butter, melted
Cinnamon/Sugar (mix together 1 C. Sugar w/ 4 tsp. Cinnamon)
2 C. Fresh Blueberries
2 C. Fresh Strawberries
1 C. Fresh Nectarines, copped
*Optional add in: Shredded Coconut, Toasted Almonds*

Heat oven on Broil
Place the Cubed day old bread in large bowl. Pour melted butter over bread and toss until coated. Then sprinkle 1/4 C. Cinnamon-Sugar mixture over and toss again.* You can add as much of the sugar mixture you would like.*  Place on a sheet pan. Broil for 2-3 minutes. Watching carefully, so not to burn. Stir the bread up & continue to cook until crisp. While you are letting the bread cool, cut up & mix
all the fresh fruit together.
When bread is cooled mix with the fruit. Top with toasted Coconut & almonds just before serving. Due to the bread getting "soggy", this doesn't store well. So make sure you mix the fruit with the bread right before serving.

Have a great day!

I've never heard of such a thing, but I've instantly become a fan! What a wonderful breakfast...and I don't think I'd have trouble with leftovers getting soggy. There would be NO leftovers :)
