  1. Pre-heat skillet on medium heat. In a bowl combine eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar.  Beat mixture until well combined.
  2. Dip bread generously until soaked through but not soggy. Add mixture to buttered pan and cook until golden brown, flip bread and cook on the other side until golden.
