Tortilla French Toast

2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk
8 thick flour tortillas
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Salsa, diced avocado and grated
    Cheddar cheese, for garnish

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Place four plates in the oven to warm. Combine eggs, salt and milk in a shallow dish. Add tortillas one or two at a time, and soak them as you would French toast, turning once to coat them evenly.

Heat about 1 tablespoon each of the butter and oil in a heavy skillet. Fry tortillas one at a time, cooking until they are browned lightly on each side and adding more butter and oil as needed. Place a pair of tortillas on each of the plates, arranging them side by side, but overlapping a bit. Don't cover them.

Top the tortillas with salsa, some chunks of avocado, and a generous sprinkling of cheese. Serve immediately.
