How to: Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Sticks

First off, there are many ways to make french toast, and none of them are bad (in my humble opinion). But, I always forget that it’s an option until I have stale bread and no ideas for breakfast. However, now that I’ve made it once, my daughter is obsessed and wants to make it every morning (Definitely not happening – but, I’ve given in a few times. Let’s be honest, I want to eat it, too). French toast sticks are perfect for small hands. No utensils required.

Here’s what you’ll need:

French Toast Ingredients:

  • Bread (the more stale the better – you don’t want your sticks to be floppy. We like to use Texas toast for the thickness factor)
  • Two eggs
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • Butter to fry
  • 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon mixed (optional)


  • Cut the bread into sticks. We get about 3 sticks from each piece of bread, but we’ve done 4, as well.
  • Whisk together eggs and milk. Make sure the container is big enough to dip the bread into. We poured ours into a pie pan.

  • Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Roll bread in egg mixture, shake off excess, and place in pan.
  • Cook each side until golden brown.
  • Roll the freshly cooked sticks in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. You’ll want to do this quickly so that the mixture sticks well.
  • Try not to eat too many.

You can dip them in syrup if you like, but we’ve found that they are sweet enough without.

Note: Alli wanted to try putting the sugar on before cooking.Since I’m all for experimenting we did it! It resulted in a slightly more caramelized version. But, they were still tasty.
