Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon butter and cook until melted. Swirl to coat the bottom of the pan. In the meantime, dip each slice of bread into the custard mixture. Soak each side of the slice for 15-20 seconds or until mostly saturated.

Repeat with remaining bread slices and custard, adding additional butter between each batch.
