New Recipe Morning...Cinnamon -Sugar French Toast Bites

It's getting crazy in the Hyzy house.  Not just New Recipe....but New Recipe Morning...  crazy, right?!  For a brief moment, I totally felt like a good mom...nice warm breakfast on the table.  John and Zack both liked them a lot, me not so much.  I'm just not a french toast fan in general.  I don't like the squishy soft middle part.  I think it's a whole texture issue thing.
Cinnamon-Sugar French Toast Bites
3 Tbsps sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 loaf french bread, cubed
2 Tbsp butter
maple syrup

In a large bowl, stir together sugar and cinnamon.  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 gently until the cubes are evenly coated and all the egg mixture has been absorbed.

In a large frying pan over medium heat, melt 1 Tbsp butter.  Add half the coated bread cubes and cook, turning often, until golden brown on all sides.  About 5 minutes.  Transfer the cubes to the bowl holding the sugar mixture and toss to coat.  Repeat with remainder of cubed bread.  Serve with maple syrup.
