Serves: 4Hands-on: 15 minutesTotal: 20 minutesDifficulty: Easy
- 2 large eggs
- 1⁄2 cup whole milk
- 2 tsp. sugar
- 1⁄4 tsp. vanilla
- 1⁄2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1⁄4 tsp. salt
- 8 slices day-old French bread, sliced 1 inch thick
- 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
- Beat the eggs lightly, then combine with the milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Pour into a flat-bottomed dish somewhat larger than the slices of bread. Dip the bread into the mixture on both sides, one slice at a time, stirring the mixture after each. Do not soak. Place bread on a plate and allow to stand for a few minutes.
- In a medium skillet, heat about 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Cook bread for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Add more oil for the second batch.
