Cinnamon Swirl French Toast

"French toast was invented many years ago as a way to use up stale bread. Today, we often select special bread to make this sweet breakfast treat. It's simple enough for children to make and sophisticated enough for a special occasion. Two slices will be enough for most people, while hearty eaters may want an extra slice or two."

Recipe Submitted By BlackDog

6 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
2 to 4 tablespoons butter
8 to 10 slices cinnamon-raisin bread

Combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, and salt in a medium-size bowl and mix together with a whisk. Set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter on a griddle or in a large nonstick sauté pan over medium heat. Dip the bread, one slice at a time, into the egg mixture until well coated, and place it on the griddle. Cook the French toast for about a minute on each side or until golden brown. Repeat until all of the slices are toasted. If you're cooking the French toast in batches, place the finished pieces in an oven at the lowest heat setting to stay warm.

Makes 4 servings.
