- 6 large eggs
- 3/4 cups milk (any kind)
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 8 slices thick-cut bread (artisan, brioche, etc.)
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- First, make cinnamon sugar topping by combining brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside.
- Then, whisk together eggs, milk, and maple syrup and set aside.
- Prepare the French toast “sticks” by using a cerated knife to slice bread in either half or in thirds (depending on how wide your bread is).
- Submerge the strips of bread in the egg mixture and let sit for around 1 minute to really soak up all the goodness. Then, lift the bread out of the mixture and let excess egg drip off each piece of bread. Repeat.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of butter over medium/low heat in a large nonstick skillet. Add around 1/3 of the French toast sticks to the pan, making sure they are spaced out and not touching. Let cook for around 3 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
- Flip French toast sticks and turn the heat up to medium. Cook for 2-3 more minutes or until golden brown. Before removing from the pan, sprinkle on a generous amount of cinnamon sugar on the French toast sticks and flip. Let cook for 20 seconds and do the same thing on the other side.
- Use a piece of paper towel to wipe your pan to remove the brown bits. Turn the heat back down to low/medium and repeat this process 2 more times or until all French toast sticks are cooked.
Tips & Notes
- Bread: we’ve made this recipe with all kinds of bread. Whole wheat bread works too, but we love a thick-cut piece of bread for French toast sticks!
- All stovetops vary, so make sure you start off cooking these on medium/low. The goal is to cook the egg and not burn them!
