Doughnut French Toast

Making toast with white bread topped with butter and cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top has always been a favorite.  When I saw this recipe for french toast rolled in sugar I was interested.  While reading the reviews I saw the suggestion of adding cinnamon to the sugar.  OK, I am in the kitchen and ready to make breakfast. The taste of the vanilla, crusty golden bread on the outside and tender inside then covered with cinnamon sugar.  It's a keeper. 

2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
4 teaspoons vanilla (I used 3 tsp)
4-6 slices of bread (I used thick slices of pull apart white bread)
1/4 cup sugar with 1/2 tsp cinnamon added
butter and little oil for frying

In a small baking dish add the sugar and cinnamon and mix. Set this aside, this will be used to dredge the cooked bread in before serving.

Using a 9x13 inch baking pan mix the egg, vanilla and milk. Whisk this mixture together then lay the bread in and allow to soak for 3-5 minutes per side. Spread about 1 ounce of butter and a little oil on your electric skillet or fry pan. Grill each bread slice until golden brown then flip and grill the other side. Then roll each bread slice in the cinnamon mixture and serve with melted jelly or maple syrup.
