Soak bread in milk until soft. Heat over medium high heat until nearly boiling. Beat eggs until light, add sugar, salt and vanilla to eggs. When well mixed, stir into bread and milk mixture. Pour into a 1 1/2 quart baking dish, set in a pan of hot water and bake at 325 degrees about 1 hour or until done.
