Homemade Baked French Toast Sticks

April 19, 2012


As I type this, a very impatient 5 year old watches me.  "Are you done?" He must get on the computer. He must play PBS Kids.  We do have another computer, but,alas, he must use this one.

This is the same conversation we (my 5 year old and myself) had yesterday while taking pictures of these french toast sticks.  "Are you done yet?" "Can I eat them?!"  He was extremely impatient.  About 10 seconds after these were taken, they were gone.  Gone. Vanished.  Then, he ate another 3 or so that were suppose to be for breakfast this morning. Then, this morning..the rest, gone.


These are one of those recipes that you make and then one day, realize " Hey, why buy frozen when I can make them homemade?!" {Smack self on forehead} I have been buying frozen french toast sticks forever. My kids inhale them.

So, since I am now a "bread maker", we made our leap from frozen to homemade. The nice thing about these is that you can use whatever type of bread you prefer and then, stash a batch for a quick breakfast.

Or, in my child's case..an afternoon snack. :)
