Cinnamon sugar coated French Toast Sticks are dredged in an egg mixture and crushed cinnamon cereal. This easy breakfast option is delicious, kid-friendly, and easy-to-make! One of my favorite cereals growing up was cinnamon toast crunch. While I’m not a huge cereal person any more these days (I’ll go for this green smoothie recipe or blueberry smoothie most mornings) I can still do a good amount of damage to a box of cinnamon toast crunch! So why not crush it up and add it to one of my family’s favorite (French toast) breakfasts? Yes, I went there and I don’t know if my kids will ever let me make French toast sticks any other way! How to make French toast sticks Pick your bread: If using French toast, slice 3/4th inch thick pieces and then slice each piece into 2-3 sticks. If you are using Texas toast, cut each pre cut piece into 3-4 sticks. I recommend Texas toast for this recipe. Make egg/milk mixture: combine all the wet ingredients in a bowl large enough to thoroughly dunk the bread in! Blend the cereal: add the cereal into a blender or food processor and pulse until it forms crumbs. Assemble: dredge the sticks of bread in the egg & milk mixture. Next dredge in the cereal! Cook the French toast sticks until they are crispy & golden brown and then flip them on the other side. Get the sides crispy and then transfer to a plate. Be careful to not overcrowd the pan. Serve immediately with your choice of toppings such as maple syrup, fresh berries, and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. FAQS Do French toast sticks have dairy? It completely depends on the recipe. This recipe DOES have dairy, but it can be made with dairy free alternatives (such as vanilla almond milk). If lactose is a concern, I’d recommend using lactose-free butter and Lactaid whole milk. If you are using dairy-free alternatives or opt for a lower fat milk, you won’t have a super rich creamy custard, but it will work. For more of a French toast dessert, replace the milk with heavy cream. How long do you cook French toast sticks? Cook time will vary depending on the heat of your stove. The key is to watch the sticks until they are crispy and golden brown and then flip them to the other side until all the sides are all crispy and golden brown. How can you tell if French toast is undercooked? The best way to tell if your French toast sticks are undercooked is to see if it’s soggy. If it’s soggy this means the egg mixture was not cooked through and your French toast is still undercooked. Stick it back on the skillet for a minute until it has a crispy golden brown surface. Is it safe to eat soggy French toast? Soggy French toast means there is too much egg mixture on your toast or it wasn’t cooked long enough. This means you have semi-raw eggs which can be unsafe. If your French toast is soggy from being undercooked, add it back to the skillet or griddle before consuming. (Eating raw/undercooked eggs carries with it the risk of salmonella). Serve these French toast sticks alongside: Fresh berries or fruit Freshly sliced banana With maple syrup, blueberry syrup, or this vanilla sauce.
