8 - 1/2
sturdy bread (I like a buttery brioche or challah)
half and half
In a wide shallow bowl (I like to use a pie plate), whisk together the half and half, eggs, syrup, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.
Dip each bread slice in the egg mixture and allow to soak for 30 seconds on each side. Transfer to a baking sheet to allow the mixture to soak all the way through the bread.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a non-stick griddle pan over medium high heat. Place four slices of the bread in the pan and cook until golden brown, approximately 2-3 minutes. Flip the bread over and continue cooking for an additional 2-3 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining bread slices.
Serve immediately with powdered sugar, fruit or maple syrup, if desired.
To make a double or triple batch, preheat oven to 300 degrees and warm a baking sheet in the oven. Transfer cooked French toast to the baking sheet to keep warm until the whole batch is ready.
