Cinnamon French Toast Sticks – Tasty cinnamon-sugar coated French toast sticks you can dip, dunk, and enjoy! A fun way to spice things up for breakfast!
Before we dive into this recipe, I have to update you about my trip. Last weekend I was writing to your from Philadelphia, PA. We’ve taken a little jaunt down the coast and this weekend we are exploring The Outer Banks – the coastal part of North Carolina. Today we are in Kitty Hawk, I’m in love. I’ve already picked out the beach house I’m going to buy someday very very far away. Or… the ten houses I’d like to buy. I couldn’t pick just one.
This place though? It’s like I stepped right into a Nicholas Sparks novel. Except, I’m already in love and I’m not recovering from some kind of tragic past or on a quest to find myself. But other than that, it’s pretty much exactly like Sparks. Since it’s the “off season” it’s not too busy around her and I love that. No big crowds and it’s nice and quiet. A little bit o’ heaven.
Okay enough with the cheese, let’s get on to syrupy cinnamon french toast things.
If we’re being honest, you could make this exact recipe minus the slicing of the bread into sticks but, what fun would that be? I’m a dipper. If there’s a way to make it dippy, I will find it. The yummy dippy sticks are a piece of cake to make. And aren’t they cute?? So cute. You can’t have a bad morning with Cinnamon French Toast Sticks. You just can’t.
Cinnamon French Toast Sticks
- 8 slices Texas toast white bread
- 2 eggs
- ¼ cup milk
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- ¼ cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- syrup, for serving
- Preheat a large pan or griddle to medium high heat and spray with cooking spray.
- Cut bread into strips. In a wide bowl whisk together eggs, milk, and vanilla. In another bowl combine cinnamon and sugar and stir to combine. Dip sliced bread into egg mixture, turning to coat.
- Next, dip egg-coated bread sticks into cinnamon sugar mixture and toss to coat. Place bread sticks onto preheated pan/griddle and cook 1-2 minutes, then turn and cook other side 1-2 minutes until lightly browned. Repeat with remaining toast sticks. Serve warm with syrup if desired. (I love these with maple syrup but use whatever you prefer!)
