French Toast "Sandwiches"

Description: Choose a firm, close grained bread for this recipe; ideally, it should be a day or two old (stale bread absorbs the liquid better without falling apart). Any leftover bread scraps from cutting shapes can be ground in a food processor, dried in a low (250 degree) oven, and saved to use a breadcrumbs. If you don't have whole milk, you can substitute 1/4 cup of cream and 3/4 cup of low-fat or skim milk.
