The More Efficient Way to Make a Brunch Classic

Making pain perdu (bread soaked in beaten eggs, then fried) for two is a cinch: whisk eggs with cinnamon, dip two slices of bread in the mixture and cook in a frying pan until browned. Multiply that by eight, though, and you're spending considerably more time over the stove. Here's the trick: Prepare the dish as you normally would (refrigerate the egg-soaked bread for an hour or more, if you wish), and then, instead of cooking the slices over the heat, lay them on a greased sheet pan and bake for about 10 minutes, flip and continue baking. You get extra points if you lay sliced bananas on top of each piece and finish under the broiler for a minute or so.
