30 minutes, plus overnight for the loaf to stand. Three tricks for perfect results: Use day-old bread, cut each bread cube to include some crust, and soak the skewers.

Whisk milk, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl to blend. Mix in bread to coat, then thread onto skewers.

Step 4

Oil cooking grate, using tongs and an oiled wad of paper towels. Grill skewers, covered, until browned, turning once, 3 to 4 minutes.

Step 5
