Baked French Toast Sticks

I saw this recipe and knew I needed to make these! They were easy to make and taste wonderful. I put them in the toaster oven on 350 for about 5 minutes.

makes 36 sticks

4 eggs
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoon vanilla
12 thick (about 1 inch) sliced bread or Texas toast sliced bread**Beth used the whole loaf
3-4 Tablespoons butter (optional)

Cut each slice of bread into three pieces.
In a shallow bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, milk , maple syrup, cinnamon and vanilla with a fork or whisk, until well blended. Dip each bread strip into the egg mixture, coating completely, but do not over soak. You don't want the bread to be super soggy.

Place on a greased cookie sheet. If you want you can brush a little melted butter underneath each strip before you place it on the cookie sheet. I found that worked well! Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Let them sit while the oven is preheating.

Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and brush tops with melted butter and turn them over to toast the other side. Return to oven and bake for 5-10 minutes more or until golden brown.

Now you can either eat or flash freeze (put them in the freezer for a bit so they freeze individually.)and place them in a freezer bag. They make for a great quick breakfast.

When ready to serve reheat in the toaster oven for 3-5 minutes.
Eat plain or serve with syrup and garnish with a little powdered sugar.

  1. I don't have a toaster oven, so would I just put them under the broiler in the regular oven and keep an eye on them?
