Banana Bread French Toast

I've been making banana bread like it's going out of style.  One of my favorite ways to eat it (or any sweet, quick bread) is to make french toast.  It's easy and tastes awesome.

I used banana bread because I had it, but this would also be awesome with pumpkin bread, cranberry nut bread, or anything else you have around.  Also, if you like more cinnamon or nutmeg, then add more spices.

Banana Bread French Toast:

Banana bread, sliced.  This is rich so I would say 2-3 slices per person is fine.
3 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup cream or half and half
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix everything, except the bread together in a bowl, making sure that everything has combined well.

Heat a skillet over medium heat.  Melt 1 tablespoon of butter.

While the pan is heating, take the slices of bread and place in the mixture.  Let soak for a minute or so and turn so the other side can soak as well.

Place each slice of bread in the hot skillet and cook for a minute or two on each side, until nice and golden brown.  I ate mine with butter pecan syrup, which was amazing but anything you have at home will work.
