Cinnamon French Toast

Posted by Lori:

I think I've only made French toast once in my life and it wasn't very successful.  My kids never seemed to like it if they tried it at hotels or restaurants either, so I never bothered with trying to make it again.  However, I came across a recipe that used a loaf of French bread instead of thick, Texas-style bread.  I decided to try it this morning, and I'm so glad I did!  The cinnamon with the egg mixture gives it so much more flavor.  My three boys really liked it and I did, too.  (My daughter and husband were gone, so I didn't get their opinion.)

Cinnamon French Toast

6 slices French bread, cut into thick, diagonal slices
4 large eggs
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons sugar

Beat eggs and milk together in mixing bowl.

Mix the cinnamon and sugar together in small bowl, add to milk and eggs and blend well.
Pour mixture into small square dish.
Melt butter in skillet over medium high heat. (If doing only a few slices at a time, divide butter between each set.)

Dip both sides of each bread slice into milk mixture until thoroughly saturated.
Lightly brown each side in pan over medium heat.
Serve with syrup.  YUM!
Pin It Now!

We don't make it often either, but I've heard that it's really good made with Hawaiian bread!
