Quick & Easy Homemade French Toast Sticks

Quick & Easy Homemade French Toast Sticks

The girls were gone with Jesse at swimming and ice skating practices all afternoon/evening yesterday, so Silas and I had a fun Mother-Son Day.

We went to our friends’ pool and hung out for most of the afternoon and then came home to make Cinnamon Rolls (one of Silas’ favorite foods. Okay, and mine, too!!).

Only, we were out of flour and our wheat grinder decided to bite the dust (I’m hoping I can resurrect it, but that didn’t happen last night), so we improvised and made homemade French Toast Sticks.

I googled for a recipe (because that’s what we do now, right??) and this was the first one that came up. It looked easy and we had all the ingredients, so I made it.

We loved this recipe. It was not only so simple to make, but the French Toast Sticks were delicious and it was a fun and kid-friendly twist on regular French Toast!

We ate them without syrup, which made the recipe quite frugal, and we thought they were plenty yummy without syrup. However, I think it’d be fun to dip them in syrup, too. 🙂

Changes I made to the recipe (because, of course, you know I rarely ever follow a recipe exactly as written!):

  • I used half and half instead of heavy cream. I think you could totally use milk, too. It tasted richer with half and half, but it would still definitely work okay with regular milk.
  • I used regular bread from Aldi instead of Texas toast. Because that’s what we had on hand and I’m all about making do with what you have.
  • I used brown sugar in place of sugar… because we happen to be completely out of white sugar. {We’ve actually been out of it for a few months and I’ve kind of been having a contest with myself to see how long we can go without buying it. However, please don’t get any ideas that we are skipping desserts around here entirely. Trust me, I might like to eat fairly healthfully, but I’m all about eating doughnuts every now and then!}
  • I left out the vanilla. I actually just up and forgot to put it in! 🙂 Please tell me I’m not the only one who does things like this!

    I used to make these for my little guy. He HATED eggs in any form, so when the rest of the family was having eggs and toast for breakfast I had to get him to eat what they were eating since I don’t believe in making different meals. At the time he was obsessed with “fighter fighters” (fire fighters), so I told him that I was making “fireman poles”! He ate them right up. We also didn’t use syrup since the rest of the family was just eating eggs and toast and I didn’t need jealous sibs!

    These are one of our favorite breakfasts when we go camping. We eat them without syrup, but sprinkle them with a little cinnamon sugar. They’re super easy to eat on the go and they always seem like a special treat. But now you’re inspired me to make them at home, too. 🙂

    My boys love frozen french toast sticks. I rarely buy them though. I’ve never thought about making them! Great idea!

    No, you’re not the only one who accidentally leaves an ingredient out of a recipe. I left the vanilla out of a pie that I made for Thanksgiving dinner last fall!
