  2. Whisk ingredients together

    In a large shallow baking dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, honey, vanilla, and salt.

    Dip 2–3 slices of bread in the egg mixture at a time for 1–2 minutes per side.

    In the meantime, heat 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat.

    Place the cooked French toast on a baking sheet to keep it warm in the oven while you cook the rest of the bread, or if you don't plan on eating it immediately.
