Cinnamon Sugar French Toast

I've never been a big breakfast person. I prefer to eat something small while on the go. Sitting down for a big breakfast is just something I don't do. Which is unfortunate, because I do like a lot of breakfast foods. So what does one do in that predicament?

Have breakfast for dinner. And no, don't shorten it to "brinner". Words like that annoy the crap out of me. It's a sandwich not a "sammy". I get cranky when Food Network stars do things like that.

Ingredients:
    • 12 slices bread (I used honey wheat)
    • 6 eggs
    • 1/4 cup milk
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 2 tbs. cinnamon
    • 1 tbs. vanilla

Directions:
1. Combine the cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl.
2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together. Add the vanilla and cinnamon-sugar mixture and whisk until combined.
3. Spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat.
4. Dip the bread into the egg mixture and thoroughly coat on both sides. Place the bread in the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until lightly browned. Reduce the heat to medium/medium-low and repeat with remaining slices of bread.

I'm also one of those people who doesn't use syrup on their french toast. Syrup is for pancakes, not french toast. I lightly butter mine and sprinkle powdered sugar over it. If you haven't tried it that you, you really must give it a chance!
