quick fix : 
Cinnamon French Toast 
French toast is a supremely simple-to-make fancy brunch food. It's best made with generous, thick slices of good-quality, crusty bread, but is pretty tasty even with ordinary sandwich bread. It's a fabulous way to use up stale bread. Different types of bread will yield a slightly different texture -- ciabatta bread happens to be my current favorite, as it results in a nice, slightly crusty outside and chewy inside -- so experiment a bit to see what you like best. 


ingredients

6 (approx.) slices of bread
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
2 dashes cinnamon
time 
30 minutes

serves
2


1.
Beat the egg, milk and cinnamon in a large bowl.
2. Soak your bread slices in the egg mixture.  I like to let mine sit in the batter for 2-3 minutes, until each slice has really soaked up the liquid, but if you like your French Toast more bread-y, and less spongy, you can just dip each slice quickly, just enough to cover both sides.
3. Heat a skillet on medium-high, with a tiny bit of oil (just enough to lightly coat the pan).
4. Cook each slice of French toast on both sides until good and brown. You'll probably have to cook in batches, so keep cooked slices warm in a 200F oven while you work. Serve with real maple syrup.
