Sunday is here and that means a night with a “Breakfast for Dinner” theme. I try and switch it up so we aren’t eating the same breakfast foods weekly. Last week we had Breakfast Burritos. Those are mighty delicious and mighty unhealthy, so last Sunday was known as “mighty cheat meal day.” This week I opted for something that I thought the kids would enjoy (and adults) – and then I made more than our needed serving so that I could save a few for tomorrow’s breakfast.
French Toast is so easy to make. I love to make a batch using texas toast whenever I can locate some, although come to think of it; texas toast seems awfully hard to come by around these neck of the woods. I’m not sure why. Nag some if you see some in your grocery the next time you’re doing your shopping. You get a more thick piece of french toast and you can also cut them into sticks, like this recipe! They make fun for dunking into maple syrup.
- 6 slices of Texas Toast, cut into four sticks.
- 3 large eggs
- 3/4 cup whole milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- maple syrup, for serving
- cinnamon, for serving
- confectioners sugar, for serving
- Cut each Texas toast slices into four sticks. Set aside.
- Using a large bowl, add eggs, milk and vanilla. Whisk together well.
- Heat a well-greased large skillet over med-high heat.
- Dip each texas toast stick into egg and milk mixture, making sure to coat each side well. Add texas toast stick to skillet. Repeat with each stick, leaving a few inches in-between. Cook until slightly golden brown on each side, flipping when needed.
- When all have cooked throughly, add to a plate. Lightly sprinkle cinnamon and confectioners sugar overtop each individual stick. Serve immediately with small bowls of maple syrup for dunking.
