I continue to indulge in my love for rediscovering French toast. Recently, I savored Apple French Toast, a delightful stack of French toast generously drizzled with self-saucing stewed apple syrup. The week before that, I delighted in the incredible flavors of Parmesan French Toast. And now, this week, I’m enjoying French toast sticks – a finger-friendly treat that tastes remarkably like cinnamon doughnuts but is much healthier (a double win!).

Cinnamon French Toast Sticks


I am thoroughly enjoying experimenting with new twists on French toast! While I cherished the classic version drowned in syrup during my childhood, my university days revealed the delicious combination of piling bacon onto it, still accompanied by copious amounts of maple syrup. I humorously referred to this creation as the “Heart Attack On A Plate.” Initially, my friends were skeptical until they took their first bite and became lifelong converts, embracing the sweet and salty fusion.

Now, let’s talk about these delightful French Toast Sticks, which have two fantastic attributes:

  1. They are finger food – need I say more? Easy to grab and eat!
  2. They taste like cinnamon doughnuts, a guilty pleasure I secretly adore but seldom admit. Cinnamon doughnuts, with their deep-fried, sugary goodness, fall into my category of “Dirty Foods” – irresistible treats that I know I shouldn’t indulge in, but my taste buds can’t resist. Throughout my blog, I’ll probably reveal many more of my favorite “Dirty Foods,” which might horrify or surprise you. But maybe, like me, many people secretly love KFC Popcorn Chicken.

To ensure that the French toast sticks hold their shape and don’t flop when picked up, I recommend using stale bread and cutting thick slices from a block loaf. The thicker the sticks, the better they hold. However, if you don’t have a stale block loaf, pre-sliced sandwich bread will still yield a delicious outcome, though it might sag a bit when picked up.

I strongly advocate for using stale bread whenever possible for any French toast recipe. It makes a significant difference as fresh bread tends to soak up too much egg mixture, resulting in soggy insides.

The recipe for these French toast sticks is quick and easy, taking only about 15 minutes to make. It’s a finger food delight, something that appeals to kids and adults alike – an irresistible treat for everyone!

Equipment

Ingredients

  • 4 thick slices white bread, preferably stale (Note 1)

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/4 cup milk

  • Salt

  • 1/3 cup white sugar

  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder

  • 3 tbsp butter

  • Maple syrup to serve (optional)

Instructions

1
First, start by removing the crust from each bread slice and then cut them into 3 equal and thick batons.
2
In a bowl large enough to roll the bread sticks in, combine the eggs, milk, and a pinch of salt.
3
On a separate plate, mix together the cinnamon and sugar.
4
Next, melt 2 tbsp of butter in a large pan over medium-high heat.
5
Quickly roll each bread stick in the egg mixture, making sure not to soak them. Shake off any excess and place them in the pan. Cook them in 2 batches.
6
Turn the sticks to cook each side until they turn a golden color.
7
Immediately transfer the cooked sticks to the plate with the cinnamon sugar and roll them to coat. It's essential to do this quickly while the sticks are still hot from the pan to ensure the cinnamon sugar sticks to them.
8
Melt the remaining butter in the pan and cook the remaining French toast sticks.
9
Serve the delicious French toast sticks immediately with maple syrup for dunking. Enjoy!

Notes

To ensure perfect French toast sticks, cut thick slices of bread, and after removing the crusts, slice them into 3 batons. These batons should be about 1.7 cm / 2/3" thick, forming sturdy, square-shaped sticks. When making French toast sticks, it's ideal to use a loaf of bread that allows you to cut thick slices. The thicker the sticks and the staler the bread, the more rigid and less likely they'll flop when handled with fingers.
