So I must admit that this is not an original Eliza Spencer recipe! It is Alton Brown's but Oh! it is sooo good! I did add a twist with just a pinch of cinnamon! But otherwise all the genius is Alton! I can't get enough! My sister makes it and there are never any leftovers!

Step-by-Step

  3. Over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a 10-inch nonstick saute pan. Place 2 slices of bread at a time into the pan and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and place on rack in oven for 5 minutes. Repeat with all 8 slices. Serve immediately with maple syrup, whipped cream or fruit.
