2 cups mango, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp orange juice

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer 10 minutes.

6 slices stale bread
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 pat butter

Break eggs into a wide, shallow bowl or pie plate; beat lightly with a fork. Stir in milk and vanilla.

Over medium-low heat, heat a little of the butter in a skillet.

Place a slice of bread in the egg mixture for a few seconds, then carefully turn to coat the other side. Transfer the egg-soaked bread to the skillet., cooking it slowly until bottom is golden brown. Turn and brown the other side. Repeat with remaining slices.

    mmmmmm, your mango compote looks delicious. Have you ever tried making oat crusted french toast. There’s a cafe here that makes that topped with fresh mango, yum. I’ve tried it but not perfected the oat crusted part, curious if you tried and had success with that.
