sugary-cinnamon french toast bites

 rise and shine!!!
happy friday my dear friends
and to a lovely weekend!

this morning taylor and i enjoyed french toast bites
and hands down, these were the best yet!
they tasted similar to churros dipped in warm maple syrup.
it was so good that we kind of felt guilty
so this morning taylor decided to bike all the way to work and i'm going to walk...
 it would be selfish of me not to share this recipe
so here it is:

you will need:
french bread (baguette), cut into 1" cubes
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup milk
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon butter

in a large bowl, mix togeter the sugar and cinnamon then set aside
in a separate, large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla extract and salt.
add the cut up french bred to the wet mix & stir with a large spoon until the bread peices are soaked 
melt the butter in a large saucepan and add the saturated bread cubes
cook until brown and toasty on all sides (about 5 minutes)
remove from heat and add the cooked pieces to the sugar and cinnamon bowl
toss liberally until all the french bread pieces are coated with the mixture
heat up your favorite maple syrup
and dip away!!

taylor got a little carried away and dipped a few french toast bites into nutella
can't hate if for it...
cut i dipped one too! ;)
