- 8 slices bread, preferably challah or brioche, thick-sliced
- 5 eggs
- 1 1/4 Cup whole milk
- 2 Teaspoons vanilla
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- 3/4 Teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/4 Teaspoon salt
- 3 Tablespoons butter
Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat, and add a tablespoon of butter to melt.
In a shallow dish, combine eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.
Add bread to the mixture, one or two slices at a time, and allow to soak, depending on personal preference, up to 30 seconds per side.
Cook in pan until golden brown on both sides, about 8 minutes total. Finish cooking, allowing additional butter to melt in pan between batches. Depending on the saturation level of the egg mixture, it may need to finish cooking on a wire rack set atop a sheet pan in a 350 degree oven.
Top with butter and syrup.
