2 pastured eggs
1/4 cup milk of choice (optional)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp pure salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 TBSP natural sugar (optional)
2 TBSP butter, ghee, or coconut oil
approx 6 slices high quality bread (give or take depending on how big the bread is)

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat for 5 mins.
  • Meanwhile, beat egg lightly in shallow bowl.
  • Whisk in milk (if using), vanilla, sugar (if using), salt & cinnamon, continuing to whisk until smooth.
  • Swirl 1 TBSP butter (or oil) in hot skillet.
  • Soak each slice of bread, one at a time, until each is saturated.
  • Transfer prepared bread to skillet & cook on both sides until golden.
  • Add more butter to skillet for each new batch.



~  Of course, if you end up with extra batter, don’t dump it.  Simply make a small side of scrambled eggs, right in the same pan.
