How to Make It

This recipe is a lot simpler than it seems.

  1. First, grab a bowl and whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Whisk until it the mixture is smooth.
  2. Next, use what Casey calls the “the ABC technique” to dip the bread into the mixture one piece at a time. Casey says to “When you put the bread in begin the ABCs. Once you get to G turn it over to soak the other side. When you get P flip again. And again at V, once more at Z and then carefully lift it and let it drain off its side as you sing ‘Now I know my ABCs, next time won’t you sing with me!'”
  3. Next, heat up your pan to medium heat, melt a bit of butter, and add it to your dipped bread. Casey says to “continue to do the ABCs and add into the pan one by one {or however many can fit in your pan in a single layer}.”
  4. Cook each piece of toast’s side until it’s browned {for about five minutes each}.
  5. Finally, grab some butter, powdered sugar, syrup, and other toppings, serve, and enjoy!
