Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 C).

 

Cut four thick slices on a diagonal from the French or Italian loaf.

 

In a large shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, sugar, almond extract and vanilla.

 

Add the bread to the egg mixture and turn gently to coat evenly.

 

Let sit until the bread has soaked up some of the egg mixture, about 1 minute.
