Quick Recipe - "Gambler's French Toast"

I made the title up on the spot, there could be other dishes of the same name, I have done zero research to that end.

Stuff that goes in the dish:

  • a pile of decent bread that will in 1-2 days not be decent
  • some eggs.
  • Milk
  • vanilla, with a large pour spout (important)
  • container which a least appears to contain cinnamon
  • 1 TBsp sugar
  • Some butter for pan lubrication
  • More butter for later.
  • Powdered sugar 

How to make it

  1. turn burner on almost full blast.
  2. find most of the stuff listed above
  3. crack eggs into bowl
  4. add milk
  5. dump in less vanilla than I did.
  6. grab container which appears to have cinnamon, add a bunch of that too.
  7. Look at "cinnamon" container to verify it is actually cinnamon.
  8. whisk or beat with fork.
  9. rub butter on hot pan
  10. dip bread into egg mixture
  11. cook the stuff.
  12. once done cooking, add more butter to the toast
  13. dump powdered sugar on.
Alternate title "Dad in a hurry Toast"
