Ingredients

  • 5 large eggs , room temperature*
  • 1 cup milk , room temperature (2% or whole preferred)**
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter , cooled to room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 8-10 slices thick cut white bread
  • oil or non-stick cooking spray for greasing the pan/griddle
  • Fresh fruit, syrup & whipped cream for serving

Instructions

  • Heat a large frying over medium-low to medium heat.
  • In a large shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs. Add in the milk, melted butter, vanilla, sugar & cinnamon and whisk until well combined and the mixture is an even consistency without any chunks of eggs.
  • Grease the griddle or frying pan with about 1 teaspoon of oil or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Dunk each slice of bread into the mixture until well coated, then flip over to dunk the other side. Shake off any extra batter then place on the heated griddle/frying pan. Fry for about 1-2 minutes until the first side begins to turn golden brown, then flip and fry the second side until golden. Repeat with the remaining slices of bread.
  • Serve immediately with syrup & desired toppings.

Notes

*To bring eggs to room temperature quickly, place them in a bowl with lukewarm water for 5 minutes.
**To bring milk to room temperature quickly, microwave for short 10-15 second bursts .
