Baked French Toast Sticks

This is the perfect quick and easy breakfast (or when ever), that can be made ahead and frozen.  They taste delicious!!  My kids thought they were in heaven!! I am really LUCKY that any of them made it to the freezer.  The family devoured them straight out of the oven.


Baked French Toast Sticks
makes 36 sticks
4 eggs
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoon vanilla
12 thick (about 1 inch) sliced bread or Texas toast sliced bread
3-4 Tablespoons butter (optional)
Cut each slice of bread into three pieces.
In a shallow bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, milk , maple syrup, cinnamon and vanilla with a fork or whisk, until well blended.  Dip each bread strip into the egg mixture, coating completely, but do not over soak.  You don't want the bread to be super soggy.
 
Place on a greased cookie sheet.  If you want you can brush a little melted butter underneath each strip before you place it on the cookie sheet.  I found that worked well!  Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Let them sit while the oven is preheating.
Bakefor 10 minutes. Remove from oven and brush tops with melted butter and turn them over to toast the other side.  Return to oven and bake for 5-10 minutes more or until golden brown.
Now you can either eat or flash freeze (put them in the freezer for a bit so they freeze individually.)
and place them in a freezer bag.  They make for a great quick breakfast. 
When ready to serve reheat in the toaster oven for 3-5 minutes.
Eat plain or serve with syrup and garnish with a little powdered sugar.
Oh YUM!!

  2. Oh those look yummy! So smart to make them into sticks, so that there's more surface area for even more crispy goodness!!! Great idea. :-)

  8. NICE!!! So much better than frying them. I totally trying this over the weekend. Thanks so much for stopping by to comment on my little jailbird. Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. Since our little escapade to pick up Cooper at the police station it's been tough to find the time to get back to everyone. Sorry, but your sweet words on the matter made it easier to get through.

    Lots of yummy love,
