This recipe may be the best thing I have ever eaten!
I have been eating my way through this quarantine, but, now, I am in heaven!
Leftover Easter Bread French Toast is quite simple to make. All you need is the (Sweet) Easter Bread your Mom, Nonna, Aunt, Nana, Grandma, or maybe even you, baked yesterday on Easter. This bread is a sweet bread that is usually baked on Easter as an Italian tradition. It is baked with eggs, yeast, sugar, flour and butter.
We were lucky enough to have my parents stop by for a “driveway delivery” of my Mom’s infamous annual Easter Bread this year with a face mask and all!
We enjoyed the Easter bread fresh after it was baked and then, as most of you know, the next day, it is not as moist, somewhat dry. I had this idea and I loved it. My kids and husband loved it just as much as I did!
So, I may have been late to the table with discovering this new way to enjoy leftover Easter bread, but I just had to share it with all of my followers who got their hands on a sweet Easter bread this year! Enjoy and Buona Pasquetta!

Pasquetta “Little Easter”
Today is Easter Monday. In Italy, it is called Pasquetta and it is actual a national Italian holiday. The celebration of Pasquetta typically involves a picnic of dishes made with Easter dinner leftovers. Families usually gather on the countryside. Now, unfortunately, we cannot gather with our families this year, but this leftover recipe seemed to bring back memories of celebrating Pasquetta with my Mom’s leftover creations, with both my own family growing up, as well as, the traditions my Mom shared with my own children growing up.
