  • 8 slices bread
  • 6 whole eggs
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon bacon grease or cooking oil


  • Beat together the eggs and milk until you have a creamy yellow mixture.
  • Whisk in the vanilla extract, salt, and cinnamon.
  • Rub about a teaspoon of bacon grease or cooking oil all over the top of your griddle.
  • Dip a slice of bread into the egg mixture, and immediately place it on the hot griddle. 
  • Cook each side until the bread turns a nice golden brown, and then flip it over to cook the other side, letting it turn a nice golden brown, as well. It'll probably take about 3 to 5 minutes per side.
  • Repeat the above step for all of your bread slices. Tip: Keep them warm by placing them on a cookie sheet in a warm oven.
  • Serve the warm slices with butter and maple syrup. You can dust with powdered sugar if desired.
