What is it about french toast sticks that make you feel like a kid again? Maybe it’s the dunking part… I don’t know why it is exactly, but all I know is that when I make these crunchy sweet, full of cinnamon sugar french toast sticks I feel like I’m eight years old again when my mom would warm up those frozen french toasts sticks we would buy in the supermarket.

These Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Sticks are one of my daughter’s favorite breakfast treats.  Just imagine thick slices of Texas toast dipped in an vanilla-sugar egg mixture, then pan fried until crisp and caramelized, but still keeping the inside soft and fluffy.  

After cooking they are immediately tossed in cinnamon and sugar while they are still hot.   French toast sticks that melt in your mouth really!!!!

These French Toast Sticks are easy and simple to make and can be kept in the refrigerator for 5 days or placed in the freezer and warmed up in the microwave or toaster oven.

Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Sticks

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Sticks that will transport you back to your childhood!

Ingredients

  • 8 slices thick-cut Texas toast
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Unsalted butter, for cooking
  • Cinnamon Sugar,
  • Maple syrup, for serving

Directions

  1. I prefer to use day old bread, or slightly dried out bread. Cut each slice of Texas toast into four sticks. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar and vanilla. Dip each piece of bread in the egg mixture, making sure to coat all sides of the bread stick.
  3. Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat and add 2 to 3 tablespoons of butter. Once the butter has melted, place several of the coated sticks in a single layer in the pan. (Do not overcrowd the pan.) Cook until golden brown on one side then flip and continue cooking until the sticks are golden brown and slightly crisped on all edges.
  4. Immediately after cooking add the french toast sticks to the cinnamon-sugar mixture and toss to coat.
  5. Serve immediately with maple syrup for dipping.
  6. French toast sticks are best warm and fresh, but will keep airtight in the refrigerator for up to 5 days and can be gently reheated in the micro or toaster
    *To freeze the Baked French Toast Sticks, let them cool, then place onto a baking sheet and into the freezer until frozen solid. Transfer to a freezer bag then microwave for 30 seconds to a minute to reheat. Enjoy!.
