2 qt. vegetable oil (for deep frying)
2 lg. eggs
1 cup whole milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract

With a knife remove crust from bread and from center of loaf cut cross-wise five 1-1/2 inch thick slices. Diagonally quarter the slices. In a large kettle heat 2 inches of oil over moderate heat until 375°F. In a large bowl wisk together the remaining ingredients.

Einar, I made this at work this morning. I can't wait to take some home for my wife to try. I served it with blueberry jam on the side. Oh my God was it good!
