Cinnamon French Toast Sticks are the best finger food breakfast the whole family will enjoy. Nothing tastes better than Texas Toast-sized pieces of bread dipped in an egg mixture, deep-fried, then rolled around in cinnamon-sugar goodness. Top it off with warm maple syrup or berries and whipped cream and you'll realize why you can't eat just one!
Mix together sugar and cinnamon in a large plate and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk and vanilla extract until combined and set aside.
Cut each slice of Texas Toast into 3 equal sticks. (Optional: cut off the crusts of each stick). Dip each piece in the egg mixture until well coated. Shake off any excess.
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1-2 tbsp butter. Once melted, add bread sticks to the pan in a single layer without over-crowding the pan. Cook until golden brown on each side, about 3-5 minutes.
Immediately upon removing from the pan, dip the stick in the cinnamon sugar mixture until well coated. Serve warm with syrup or berries and whipped cream.
use slightly stale thick bread
do not allow bread stick to soak in egg mixture to avoid sogginess
coat with cinnamon-sugar mixture immediately after frying in the pan for best results
