How I Make French Toast

French toast is one of my favorite things to make for a few reasons.
1) It is easy and quick.
2) I love challah bread and buy it too often because my Whole Foods ALWAYS has it.  Darn you, Whole Foods.
3) It is yummy.  Amen.

Okay, now that we've covered that, let's get on with the show.
Here's what you'll need:

2 large eggs
1/2 c. Milk (I use skim)
Challah bread (or whatever kind of bread you have, but trust me, try to find the challah)

Yield: 2 servings, if you use the amounts above

By the way, in case you've never heard of challah bread, it is an egg-based bread and it is delightfully delightful.  It is delicious in this recipe because the main ingredient of french toast is egg.

1) Begin by cutting the challah bread into a few thick slices (you'll need 2 per person).

2) In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat.

3) In a medium bowl, scramble 2 eggs.  Add 1/2 a cup of milk, a dash of salt, and 1 tsp. of sugar.  Incorporate well.  Then cover the mixture generously with cinnamon.

4) Once the butter has melted, run the bread slices through your egg mixture.  Make sure to coat both sides of the bread very well.  You may want to add more cinnamon before drudging each slice of bread, depending on your taste.  Immediately add the bread slices to the skillet.
Cook until the bread is golden brown and then flip.  Repeat process on the second side.
Then, repeat the process with the next two slices of bread using the same mixture (if you follow this recipe, you will have plenty left in the bowl).  Make sure to add more butter to the skillet for your second batch. 

5) Serve up with syrup (optional).
