These French toast sticks are sweet, crunchy and delightfully dippable.
This last Christmas I got the most recent Pioneer Woman cookbook, Come and Get It, and I was super excited about getting to try out some new recipes.
As you can see by my tabs, I have quite the journey ahead of me.
This book has a little bit of everything! Breakfasts, side dishes, sheet pan dinners, dessert – the whole lot! The recipe I dove into first was a breakfast recipe labeled that was marked as “make ahead – freezes well – kid friendly”, crunchy French toast sticks. And it makes A LOT!
Now, this recipe really would be great to make a big batch, freeze and then bake as needed, but that’s not what we needed on this particular Saturday morning. We were hungry (now!) and only needing to cook for the 2 of us, not a crowd, so I went ahead and adjusted this recipe as needed.
If you’re interested in making the full batch, I totally recommend picking up “Come and Get It”. But if you’re like us and are looking to make a scaled down version, I got you covered!
I think French toast is my favorite weekend breakfast food. Unfortunately we rarely have a suitable bread in the house so it’s not something I actually make very often. I made sure I picked up what I needed for this recipe because I was sure I would love it! I mean, it’s French toast with CAP’N CRUNCH COATING! How could you not love this temporary sugar rush, right? Along with scaling down the portion size, I did also eliminate a bit of the additional sugar because I figured we would be getting enough as it was.
This recipe really was delicious and a fun Saturday morning breakfast. Kids will totally love this one but in all honestly, adults will too. I served the French toast sticks with fresh berries, a dusting of powdered sugar and, of course, syrup for dipping. I think the dipping is the best part. The dippability (I think I just made that word up) is a solid 10/10.
So take some time one morning to treat yourself with this deliciously crunchy twist on a breakfast classic. Or, go ahead and make the full recipe and stock your freezer for another day! Either way, I am sure you and your family are going to love this one.
Y’all come back now!
