  1. Preheat a large pan or griddle over medium low heat.
  2. Whisk egg, milk, sweet potato, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt in a shallow dish.
  3. Grease the pan (I prefer organic butter or coconut oil). When a few water drips sizzle in the pan, it is hot enough to begin.
  4. Dip bread slices one at a time in the batter, turning them over to get them completely soaked. Give them a minute to really soak in the goodness!
  5. Cook the battered bread slices for about 2 minutes on each side. The french toast is done when both sides are golden brown and there is no more visible raw egg.
  6. Serve with butter and real maple syrup.
