In shallow bowl combine eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Dip slice into egg mixture, turning to coat. Transfer to a plate. Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Cook slices, about 2 minutes turning once. Transfer to a clean plate. Using a knife cut the slices in half from corner to corner forming 2 triangles.
