  2. Whisk eggs, half-&-half, salt, spices, and vanilla until smooth but not foamy. Pour the batter over bread. Turn the bread over, let sit 5 minutes, turn the bread over again. 
  3. Preheat the Griddler® in the open griddle up on 325°F. When the Griddler is hot (indicator light will turn green), arrange the soaked bread on the hot griddle. Cook until deep golden brown on each side, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove from Griddler and serve or keep warm in low oven. Serve with warm Cranberry Maple Syrup.
