16 Mar

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Serves 2


  • 6 slices of bread (whatever bread you like e.g. wheat, rye, french baguette slices)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 1 tbsp of ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp of nutmeg (optional)
  • 1 tbsp of butter
  1. Whisk together eggs, milk, and vanilla in a medium-bowl then pour the mixture into a shallow dish.
  2. Put the tbsp of butter into a skillet at medium heat – don’t let it brown
  3. Dip one side of the slice of bread into the mixture and quickly flip it and soak the other side in the mixture
  4. Put the slice of bread into the the skillet – don’t move it or else you’ll rip the bread! Let it cook for about 2 minutes or take a peek under the slice and see if it’s golden brown
  5. Flip the slice of bread and repeat step 4
  6. Repeat steps 3-5 for each slice of bread

Tip: Add cinnamon to your liking as you dip slices. It all tends to stick to the first few slices.
