Leftover Burger-Bun French Toast
I HATE to waste food, especially due to spoilage. I think it angers my organized, planner side. You know, like I didn't plan out with enough consideration? Anyway, after a BBQ recently, we had quite a few burger buns left over. We had some in the morning with egg and cheese sandwiches, but there were still a few left the next day. Since they had very simple ingredients, they weren't going to last much longer. Jemma was requesting french toast, so I improvised.
I mixed up a custard of coconut milk (still keeping the baby and I off dairy in hopes of keeping her reflux at bay), eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon. Then, I saturated the buns and threw them on the griddle. One flip later, they were ready to eat!

I had mine into a little sandwich... yum!! If I do this again, I think I'll have to do a maple butter spread of some sort to stick the strawberries to it.
What is your favorite way to use up leftovers?
