Cinnamon Bread French Toast

I apologize for not posting a recent recipe. My life has been crazy lately and cooking has been along the lines of toss a sandwich in the direction of the cries of hunger:) Just kidding. There are no cries of hunger...Anyway, I made this on Sunday. It takes some pre-planning and it is NOT good for your body. Just your soul. Which will make you happy until you get on the scale. It's best to serve this with bacon to get the full effect. I mean, if you're eating Cinnamon Bread French Toast, you are not worrying about diabetes, cholesterol or the seams of your jeans!

Cinnamon Bread French Toast

1 homemade batch of bread dough
About a cup of brown sugar
1 stick softened butter
several T of cinnamon

After the first rise, roll the dough out into a big rectangle. Usually a batch makes a rectangle about 18x12, but don't be ocd about it:) Then spread softened butter generously over it all. Next, sprinkle brown sugar lavishly (l like that word) then cinnamon. Roll up the long side, so you have a big fat, long roll. (this is where you would normally slice for cinnamon rolls) Then fold the roll in half, tuck the end and put in a greased loaf pan. Spread butter on the top and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Rise til double and bake according to you own recipe's directions, being careful not to overbake.

Egg batter
1/4 cup milk for every 3 eggs, makes about 6 slices of french toast

When the loaf is completely cooled (next day works well). Slice into FAT (like 1") slices and dip in egg batter. Fry til golden brown. I like to use my electric skillet and fry the bacon first, then the toast. Hey! I SAID this was bad for you!:)

Serve with your favorite syrup!
