Cinnamon French Toast Sticks

I’ve created French Toast on the site before, but I wanted to experiment with creating a dippable french toast. Hence, the idea of making Cinnamon French Toast Sticks.

I wish I can say that I created this idea, but I didn’t. These have been around for a while. You can even buy them pre-made in your grocery store’s frozen breakfast aisel. Even some fast food restaurants serve french toast sticks. I’m a sucker for the french toast sticks at Sonic’s. I enjoy how thick the slices are and the crunch it has. My favorite part is dipping them into the sweet syrup.

Well, I hosted a brunch and decided that I wanted to give these a try.

What To Use?

French toast in itself it a pretty simple recipe. You use bread, eggs, cinnamon, maybe some vanilla extract, and sugar. Most of these ingredients you likely have in your pantry already.

I like my french toast sticks to be hella sweet. I tend to drown it with cinnamon. If you aren’t a fan of the kick cinnamon can have I don’t recommend adding as much as I did. But of course, you can always customize the recipe to your liking.

Choosing the right kind of bread for your french toast is key. I like to go for the Texas Toast because it’s a very thick slice of bread. Having a thicker bread works best in my opinion because it can soak up all of the ingredients without the bread becoming soggy.

Some recipes may suggest using bread that is slightly stale for this very reason. Stale bread is stiff and will absorb the egg mixture better. But, if you don’t purposely leave your bread to become stale fresh bread works just fine too.

As I mentioned, I like my french toast sticks to be hella sweet. So, right when I remove them from the frying pan I sprinkle cinnamon sugar over top. Some others like to use a powdered sugar, which works just as fine. There is no right or wrong way to doing this.
