Happy New Year Friends! I missed posting and interacting with you last week, but it was nice to have a little vacation with my family over the holidays! I hope your Christmas and New Year were memorable and special! More about that later this week, but let’s get on with a new recipe, shall we?
One favorite theme at the holidays is the food, right? Maybe you’re limiting yourself from certain food groups now that the celebrations are over, but if you have children in your life, I have to share a new French Toast Stick recipe that I made for my grandsons and we ALL loved!
French Toast sticks that you buy frozen are usually tough, but these are soft and easy for little ones to hold and chew. Take a look!
This came from another Gooseberry Cookbook, which are some of my favorites!
French Toast Sticks
4-5 Slices bread
3 C Rice crispy cereal, crushed
1 T Sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
3 eggs, beaten
1 C Milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 C butter, Melted
Cut each slice of bread into 4 strips. Combine crushed cereal, sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl; set aside.
Mix together eggs, milk, vanilla and salt in another bowl. Dip each bread stick into egg mixture and then (quickly) remove and dip into sugar coating. Place sticks on an ungreased 13 x 9 baking pan, pour melted butter over top. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden. Makes 16 – 20 sticks.
I served these with warm syrup. Yum! They were scrumptious!
Prep the ingredients the night before for a quick breakfast in the morning. Then when you’re ready to bake, do the dipping into the egg and cereal mixtures and place in the oven.
Now, don’t you wish it was time for breakfast???!!!!
