French Toast Sticks – An easy recipe that can be made in minutes and can be made ahead to prep and freeze for a quick breakfast later!

Next to pancakes, french toast is our family’s, breakfast, WEAKNESS!

I mean, you can see our love for it through the Brioche French Toast, Baked French Toast and Stuffed Strawberry Cream Cheese French Toast recipe… but good ole basic french toast is always a winner too! P.S. You’ll also love this Cinnamon Roll Casserole too!

But let’s get real… this momma’s not whipping up a batch of homemade french toast every morning before school. I like to keep things “fabulously fast” like I included in the “Fabulously Fast Dinners” cookbook!

I save our fresh french toast mornings for weekends or holidays because it takes some time to make ENOUGH to feed my house full of boys, and then cut it up for my littles. Plus, I like to make other things to go with it like:

So for busy school mornings (or let’s face it, the mornings where I’d rather sip on coffee than make a big breakfast) I love being able to whip these french toast sticks out of the freezer, reheat them in the microwave, and let the boys go to town on their breakfast in just minutes.

They’re a lot easier for kids to get their hands on, and when it makes it easy for them, it makes it easy for mom!

Cinnamon Batter for French Toast

First, you’ll want to combine the batter that you’re going to dip your bread in, to soak in all of the glorious flavors that will turn in to golden brown French toast sticks.

French Toast Sticks Ingredients:

  • 6 pieces of white bread
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • syrup and berries for toppings (optional)

Coat with butter and preheat your griddle to 350, or your pan to medium heat.

Cut your pieces into three vertical pieces (to make it into sticks).

How to Make French Toast Sticks Batter

Add the remaining ingredients into a bowl and mix together with a whisk until combined.

Dunk bread (brioche is my favorite) in to egg mixture for french toast

Next, dip each slice of bread (one at a time) into the cinnamon-egg mixture, making sure both sides are coated.

Remove bread from the mixture and let access batter drip off back into the bowl and place on to the hot griddle.

How to cook french toast on a griddle

Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the sides reach a golden brown color!

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do you reheat frozen french toast sticks?

You can pull frozen french toast sticks right from the freezer and microwave for 30-45 seconds or until heated through!

Can you freeze french toast sticks?

You bet! Cook and prepare them according to this recipe and once cooled, place into a freezer container or freezer bag, seal and freeze for up to 2 months! TIP: Place wax paper between layers of french toast so they do not freeze together and you can grab and cook only the amount you need, rather than the entire bag.

What do you serve with french toast sticks?

You can dunk them in maple syrup, sprinkle with powdered sugar, cinnamon, and sugar or serve alone! I also like serving them with fruit like blueberries, strawberries, and bananas!

You can also freeze the french toast in the same way that you would the sticks!
