Heat 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon oil in very large sauté pan over medium heat. 

Add the soaked bread and cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until nicely browned. Place the cooked French toast on a sheet pan and keep it warm in the oven. Fry the remaining soaked bread slices, adding butter and oil as needed, until its all cooked.
