1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup sliced almonds

Topping

I made this for Easter breakfast and it was delicious! I followed the exact directions except that I used Pepperidge Farm Brown Sugar Swirl Bread instead of French bread. It looked as good as it tasted. I will definitely make this again.
