Easy Cinnamon French Toast


Preheat skillet to medium heat (water sizzles on contact)

Method for Cinnamon Sugar: 1 t. cinnamon to 3 T. sugar. Just kidding. I never measure. But a lot more sugar than cinnamon, and mix it until it looks like cinnamon sugar. :)) Taste test optional, but highly recommended!

3 slices Cinnamon Chunk Bread (drier/firmer is better)

In a bowl, whisk:
1 egg
Splash milk
Cinnamon sugar to taste
Splash vanilla

Dip bread in mixture. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Place bread sugar-side down on buttered skillet. Sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar, smear with fork to get it to absorb (stray sugar will caramelize and create sticky, delicious, hard-to-clean messes). When it is firm and lightly brown on the bottom, flip and repeat.

Serve immediately with maple syrup.
