    2.
    Melt butter in large skillet or on griddle. Add bread slices; cook over medium to medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes per side or until browned. Keep slices warm on sheet pan in 200 degree F oven, until all slices are done. Serve with confectioners sugar and maple syrup, if desired. Makes 6 servings.
