Using 100% Whole Grain bread is key to making this guilt-free. Keep in mind that the lighter the bread you use, the more fluffy the end result will be. This morning I used Mack's Flax Sprouted Grain Bread
, which is quite light for a whole-grain bread.With lots of holes, it sopped up the egg/batter perfectly. The whole flax seeds gave it a nice, hearty crunch, too. If you use a denser bread, you may want to use a little more milk, and give it a few more minutes to soak.
