French Toast Sticks

Like so many other foods it's all in how you slice and serve up french toast that adds something new to an old family favourite. The secret to any good french toast is day or two old thick sliced bread. I like using either french bread or Texas Toast bread which is a thick pre sliced loaf of bread found in the bakery department of many super markets. Once these are crisped up to perfection you can pick them up and dip in your favourite syrups or use a fork and knife. These just might be a fun lunch box alternative for the kids. Cold french toast with a little container of syrup, honey or jam may be just the thing that puts a smile on their little faces.

  • 4-6 thick slices of bread, cut into approximately 1" strips
  • butter to lightly grease grill
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • dash of salt
  • syrup of your choice
  1. Slice bread.
  2. In a large jar shack together eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Turn grill or non stick pan to medium heat and add just enough butter to very lightly coat bottom.
  4. Pour egg mixture into a pie plate.
  5. Dip each bread stick into the egg mixture and place on hot griddle or pan, turning as they brown until all 4 sides are nice and golden, as they firm up.
  6. Serve immediately with your favourite syrup.
