Growing up, I never really liked French Toast. I thought it was too soggy and too cinnamon-y. But now that I’m older, I’ve come to appreciate how a single piece of bread can turn into a delicious breakfast treat with only a few other ingredients. Seriously, we always have bread, milk and eggs stocked in the kitchen, and french toast is the perfect result of those things.
Even though it’s only the beginning of September, I can feel fall creeping into the air. This recipe for French Toast Sticks is just one of those fall inspired dishes that I’ve been dying to make for weeks now.
Bread of your choice
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup granulated white sugar
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
Cut your bread length-wise to make sticks!
What to do:
Begin by flipping your bread long-ways and cutting your it into 3 strips. I recommend using a thick cut bread so that the bread holds up while soaking up the egg mixture.
In a medium size bowl, crack your eggs and whisk together with the milk.
In the same bowl, add your sugar and cinnamon. Mix together until a uniform mixture is created.
Heat up a medium sized pan and keep on medium-high heat. Put a pad of butter on the pan so that it coats it.
Dip your sticks of bread into the egg mixture and then place on the frying pan.
Once the sticks have become golden brown on both sides, remove them from the pan to your plate.
Dress up these French Toast Sticks with any toppings you’d like! I chose to use raspberries from my garden and some bananas!
