3. Pour Egg Mixture Over Bread

Pour egg mixture over the bread, leaving enough for the remaining two slices of bread. Let sit for 10 minutes so bread can soak up most of the egg mixture.

5. Cook Bread Slices

Transfer bread two slices at a time to skillet and cook for two to four minutes on each side, until edges are crispy and golden brown.  Transfer to a warmed oven and repeat until all slices are done.
