Take a trip back to your childhood with these tasty and easy French Toast Sticks. They have all the taste you know and love of regular French toast but just sliced into sticks which makes them perfect for dunking.
Who doesn’t like French toast sticks, right? Well, to be honest, we hated French Toast sticks for a while. Okay, it was not that they were gross or anything but we just got so sick of them. Growing up our dad used to buy us French toast sticks so we could have for breakfast before school. The bad thing was that he would get them from Sam’s Club which was like a box of 60 sticks. Every other week he would buy them so it is safe to say that we got tired of them fast.
All these years later we’ve been wanting to give them another chance. So we cracked some eggs mixed in a little milk and cinnamon dunked some sliced bread and got to cooking up some French toast sticks.
These delicious little sticks taste so much better than what we got from the store. They are lighter and fluffier.
Was that your stomach growling? Okay, we get it lets get started.
- Heavy cream
- Ground cinnamon
- Maple syrup
- Vanilla extract
- Day-old brioche bread already cut into sticks
- Stovetop griddle
- To get day-old bread place a few slices of already cut up bread on a cooling rack for a few hours or overnight.
- Don’t over soak the bread. A lot of people think that you need to soak the bread in the batter but that is not true. The bread only needs to in the batter for about 10-20 seconds.
- Make sure that the griddle is not too hot. This will only cook the outside of the bread and may leave the too brown on the outside and raw on the inside.
All that is left to do is pour on some maple syrup and enjoy.
