I first saw this cinnamon toast method on The Pioneer Woman's show on Food Network. I didn't try it, though, until I had a loaf of homemade French Batard that I wanted to use up before it went stale. I cut the bread thick and spread the cinnamon sugar butter on thick as well. What resulted really is the best cinnamon toast you'll ever enjoy. It's super buttery, and the layer of cinnamon sugar broiled on top is just the right amount of sweet to make this a decadent, yet simple and satisfying breakfast. If you're a fan of cinnamon toast, and you have some French bread on hand, you really must try this. I guarantee you will love it.
