Food is more fun when you can eat it with your hands right? At least I think that’s true in the case of these French toast sticks. This easy baked recipe also allows you to make a large amount at once if you’re cooking for a group.

I hope everyone had a good weekend. On Friday night, someone ran our doorbell around 8:30 PM and we weren’t expecting anyone. We didn’t answer the door, and later on I learned it was a salesman for a security company. Seriously? Why would he think it’s a good idea to approach us at such a late hour? Do people still open the door when they aren’t expecting anyone anymore?

When we first moved in, I wouldn’t open the door if I wasn’t expecting anyone. Mr. K thought I was being too cautious. But then he came to realize that I wasn’t the only one. Everyone in our neighborhood did the same thing. (A lesson we learned because sometimes it was us ringing their doorbell and we knew they were home because we could hear them.)

On Sunday, I made these French Toast Sticks. They were so fun to eat and we ended up eating way too many. I’m definitely tucking away this recipe for the next time I’m cooking for a large group.

These French Toast sticks are baked in the oven and make an easy and fun breakfast or brunch.

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices of Texas Toast style bread
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 extra-large egg
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • syrup for dipping

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat or parchment paper.
  2. Slice crust off of bread. Cut each bread slice into 4 pieces, like photo above, to form four sticks that look like thick cut fries.

  3. In a bowl, whisk heavy cream, egg, and honey. Gently dunk each stick into custard batter until it is covered on all sides. Place onto baking sheet. Repeat with remaining bread sticks.

  4. Bake for 18-20 minutes until edges turn golden brown and custard is completely cooked. Serve with a side of syrup for dipping.
