Dive into a brand new breakfast favorite that encourages you to dunk! French Toast Sticks have the sweetly seasoned and custard flavor of their full-sized cousin. Thick and fluffy but with a nice crispy exterior, French Toast Sticks is perfect for dipping in melted butter, maple syrup, or powdered sugar. These only need 30 minutes to make and can be easily frozen for future mornings!


8 slices Texas toast, thick-cut
4 large eggs
1 cup heavy cream
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2-3 tablespoons unsalted butter
maple syrup, optional for serving


Step 1

Slice each piece of Texas toast into 4 sticks.

Step 2

Combine the eggs, heavy cream, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla together in a large bowl with a whisk.

Step 3

Soak each piece of bread in the custard mixture until well-saturated. Allow the excess to drip off.

Step 4

Place the soaked sticks on a plate, and repeat with the other sticks.

Step 5

Heat a large skillet over medium heat.

Step 6

Add 2-3 tablespoons of the butter to the skillet.

Step 7

In batches, cook the sticks in a single layer on the skillet until golden on one side, about 2 minutes.

Step 8

Flip the sticks and repeat on the other side, about 3 minutes.

Step 9

Continue flipping and cooking until slightly browned on both sides, about 2 minutes.

Step 10

Transfer the cooked sticks to a new plate and repeat until all of the sticks are cooked.

Step 11

Serve immediately with syrup.
