•30 slices whole wheat bread
•.25 cups butter, melted
•.33 cups sugar
•1.33 cups milk
•2 teaspoons vanilla
•1 teaspoon cinnamon
•.5 cups butternut squash puree (could also use sweet potato, pumpkin or acorn squash)- we used sweet potato baby food
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice bread slices into thirds. In a large bowl mix all ingredients except sliced bread. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Dip bread pieces, one by one, in the batter until coated and then place on the cookie sheet. Bake for 30 minutes turning over half-way through to ensure even cooking on both sides. When done, remove to cooling rack. Serve or freeze.
Allow to cool on cooling rack completely or place on a cool cookie sheet and place in freezer for 10-15 minutes or until partially frozen (flash freezing). Place in Ziploc freezer bag and place in freezer until ready to use. To serve: microwave 30-45 seconds.
