Ciabatta French Toast
Half a loaf of day old ciabatta bread
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
Pinch of salt
3 teaspoons butter
Slice the bread to 1/4-1/2 inch thick pieces. Whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Put the first two slices in the bowl to soak. Heat the first teaspoon butter oil in a non stick pan at medium high. When hot and shimmering, turn the heat down to medium, and place the first two pieces of bread on the pan and put your next two pieces of bread in the bowl with the egg/milk mixture to soak.
Cook until lightly browned on the outside and when pressed down upon with your spatula, nothing oozes out. When finished, add another teaspoon of butter and repeat, until all of your bread and egg/milk mixture is gone.
You may want to add a little more cinnamon to the mix towards the end as the bread tends to soak it up after the first few rounds.
