In a pie pan, whisk together the eggs, and milk and half the cinnamon. Set aside.
In a separate pie pan, stir together the cinnamon. Use a fork to stir in 2 tablespoons of the butter .
In a large nonstick skillet, heat the rest of the melted butter over medium-low heat.
One by one, dunk the bread in the egg mixture (turning to coat), pressing them gently so that they stick and totally cover the surface.
Place them into the skillet with the butter and let them cook on the first side for 5 to 6 minutes, watching closely to make sure they don't burn. (If they start to darken too fast, turn the heat slightly lower and watch.) Turn them over and let them cook for 3 minutes on the other side.
