- 2 eggs
- Dash of milk, (I use non-fat, lactaid-free milk)
- 2 separate dashes of ground cinnamon
- 1 cinnamon bagel, sliced, room temperature (thaw if frozen)
- 1 teaspoon butter or butter spread
Step 1: Beat eggs with milk and a dash of cinnamon
Step 2: In medium to large frying pan, grease pan by melting butter or butter spread. Then dip each half of the bagel in the egg batter for 10-12 seconds so the bagel is somewhat saturated.
Step 3: Cook the bagel halves, open face down in the frying pan, for 3-5 minutes on each side on low to medium heat, until golden brown, turning over several times.
Step 4 (Optional): Pour any extra egg mixture in the center of the bagel and cook any additional egg mixture.
Your Double Cinnamon Bagel French Toast is all done and almost ready to eat!
