- 2 or 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- slices of bread
- powdered sugar
- Beat together with a fork the eggs, milk, and cinnamon in a medium-sized bowl (large enough to lay a slice of bread in).
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat and melt 1/2 or 1 teaspoon of butter.
- Dip a slice of bread into the mixture, turning to coat both sides.
- Place the slice of bread into the skillet to cook. Once the bottom side is browned, turn the it over to brown the other side. Transfer to a plate when done.
- Sprinkle the toast lightly with cinnamon and sugar, if desired. Drizzle syrup over the toast and enjoy!
- Repeat steps 1-5 for remaining bread slices.
According to reviews, try adding 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and nutmeg for extra flavor. If you don’t have powdered sugar, the ordinary granulated sugar will do. McCormick has a selection of herbs and spices in bottles, including cinnamon and nutmeg. You can also check out the less expensive SM Bonus brand in plastic packs.
