Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Bites

These are especially fun for the kids.  They can either eat with them with their fingers and dip them or eat them with a fork.  My hubby and I like them, but they are made more the entertainment of the kids.  Worth trying and keeping in the recipe box.

Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Bites
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 large eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
small pinch of salt
1 loaf french bread ~ cut into 1-inch cubes
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter

In a large bowl, stir together the sugar and cinnamon {or shake around in large zip lock bag} In a large shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, milk, vanilla, and salt until blended.  Place the bread cubes in the egg mixture and using a large spoon, toss until the cubes are evenly coated. In a large frying pan over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter.  Add half the coated bread cubes and cook, turning often, until golden brown on all sides, about 5-7 minutes.  Transfer the cubes to the bowl {or zip lock bag} holding the cinnamon sugar and toss to coat.  Repeat with the remaining bread cubes and 1 tablespoon butter.

You can serve these with syrup, powdered sugar or leave plain.
