That situation may very well change, thanks to a recent discovery of a recipe for caramelized French toast sticks. Immediately drawn to the thought of crunchy, sugar-coated bread in a no-utensils-necessary form, I saved half of the second loaf of last week's batch of sourdough from freezer relegation and vowed not to eat it until it was made into sticky-sweet toast sticks.

My temporary exercise in discipline was certainly worthwhile.
To turn my inspiration recipe vegan, I simply substituted the egg with its flax-meal-and-water equivalent and used almond milk and vegan butter for their respective dairy counterparts. I used raw sugar instead of brown sugar, simply because I like the coarse texture of the former. Rather than melting the sugar-butter mixture in the pan, I smeared a bit of it on the top side of each piece of bread, just before it was to be turned down onto the pan.
And just look at those beauties sparkle.
