1 vanilla bean, pulp removed

4 slices white bread, thick–cut

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla bean, and cinnamon.
Spray a nonstick pan with cooking spray, and heat it over the stove on medium.
Dip the bread slices into the egg batter and place them in the pan. Cook one side until golden brown, then turn the slices over and cook the remaining side until golden brown.
