'Sir' Cinnamon French Toast Sticks
Yield 6 servings
With our cinnamon french toast sticks, no one has to fight over the last drop of maple syrup! They're perfect as is. Would have saved a lot of trouble for Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast!
12 thick slices of day old brioche (or other thick sliced bakery bread)
5 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
8 Tb. butter, divided
1 cup sugar
4 tsp. cinnamon
- Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a wide and shallow bowl and set aside.
- In another large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla until smooth.
- Slice the bread into sticks, about four pieces per slice.
- Place bread slices, batter and cinnamon sugar next to the stove top to create an assembly line.
- Bring a large skillet or griddle to heat over medium-high. Melt 2 Tb. of butter, then dip the bread sticks into the batter, allow to drip off excess liquid, then place in the skillet (enough to fill maximize skillet space but not to overcrowd). Cook on all sides until golden.
- Immediately place golden french toast sticks into cinnamon sugar and toss to coat. Remove to a serving dish.
- Repeat the process with the remaining butter and bread.
- If you have any extra (hah!), allow them to cool completely, then layer sticks in wax paper and place in freezer bag. Freeze up to 1 month. Reheat in the microwave for an easy week-day breakfast.
