Credit where credit is due: I found the sherry addition idea from Derek at Derek on Cast Iron
4 beaten eggs
1 cup milk
4 tsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla and/or 2 Tbls dry sherry
1 tsp (or so) ground cinnamon (most simple) -or-
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice -or-
2 tsp "baking spice" -or-
make your own (least simple)
1/2 tsp salt
12-15 slices dry white bread (I use potato bread, some folks swear by french bread. Use what you have)
butter or vegetable spray for greasing the pan - preferably a cast iron skillet or griddle
Whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, sherry/vanilla, spices and salt.
Dip bread in egg mixture, coating both sides.
Cook bread on both sides until golden brown.
Makes: 12-15 slices
