Cinnamon French Toast Sticks

The perfect, easy french toast dippers. Make ahead and freeze for easy mornings at home or on-the-go!

8 slices of thick cut Texas toast

4 large eggs

1 cup heavy cream

2 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp vanilla extract

Unsalted butter, for cooking

Maple syrup, for serving

Cinnamon sugar, for dusting

  1. Slice each piece of Texas toast into 4 sticks and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, cream, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla. Dip each stick of bread into the mix and let soak until fully saturated.
  3. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add in 2-3 tbsp of butter.
  4. Once the butter has melted line the french toast sticks into the pan, making sure not to overcrowd.
  5. Cook until golden brown and crisp on all edges. Remove from pan and immediately dust with cinnamon sugar.
  6. Serve warm with maple syrup for dipping. You can also freeze in an air-tight container for easy heat up later in the microwave, toaster, or toaster-oven!

Tip – slightly dry, day-old bread works best for french toast because it will soak up the most cinnamon egg custard!
