cinnamon sugar french toast sticksChildren and adults alike love french toast, but the more portable french toast stick is a popular variation that my family loves. Here is my recipe for this easy breakfast or snack. I make mine in small portions, but go ahead double the recipe if your family or appetite is a bit larger. You will save a lot of money by making these from scratch at home. They are quite expensive if you buy them from a fast food chain or the grocery store. They are a lot better tasting and more fun for the family to make together as well.

Things You'll Need:

2 extra large eggs

1 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3 slices of bread, cut into strips

large skillet

cooking spray

How to put them together:

Step 1

Heat your skillet to medium-high heat or 375 degrees. The skillet is ready when water splashed on it jumps and sizzles. Just sprinkle a little bit of water off of the tips of your fingers to check if the skillet is ready.

Step 2

Crack eggs into a bowl and add sugar and cinnamon. Beat with a fork until yolks and cinnamon are well incorporated. Add more or less sugar and cinnamon according to your family's taste. Kids usually opt for the more sweet approach.

Step 3

Dip sticks of bread into egg mixture and pull out letting excess mixture fall back into the bowl. I like to usually cut my sticks of bread about the width of two fingers. They hold up well in the egg mixture but are small enough for young kids to handle and dip easily into syrup.

Step 4

Spray your skillet with cooking spray and then place sticks into the skillet for about 3 minutes on each side.

Step 5

Remove from skillet and serve with warm syrup if desired. My kids sometimes eat them plain because they are pretty sweet on their own, plus it makes them less messy.

Tips & Warnings

Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
