French Toast

Me and my best friend made this for breakfast about a week or so ago. It was VERY, VERY, VERY GOOD!!! I highly recommend it!


- 5 eggs
- 2 1/2 cups of milk
- cinnamon
- 1 loaf of toast bread


In a medium sized flat bottomed bowl, whisk the egg and milk together.
Add the cimmamon and combine.
Heat a non stick fry pan to medium and melt a teaspoon of butter, spreading around the pan.
Soak each slice of bread and lay into the fry pan .. turn once when bottom has browned. Keep french toast warm in the oven until ready to serve. Sprinkle with powdered sugar to serve.
