French Toast from Leftover Hamburger Buns

French Toast from Leftover Hamburger Buns

I don’t like to waste food. This is a fact. My family likes to eat hamburgers and hot dogs. This is another fact. Sadly, my family seldom eats hamburgers OR hot dogs in multiples of eight’s, which means we end up with leftover buns that end up getting tossed out. NO MORE! Use leftover hot…
