Turn the slices in the egg mixture until it soaks mixture but not falling apart.

Heat 2 tablespoons butter or spray with oil

Add as many slice of bread to the skillet as will fit without crowing and cook until the underside is golden brown. Serve immediately to keep warm in a 200 degree F. oven while you finish the rest.
