French Toast Sticks

I have a slight breakfast addiction. I have yet to meet a breakfast food that I didn't like.

But having children doesn't often mean mornings filled with coffee and breaking daylight sun-shining on my face...

No, usually it involves shoving coffee into my mouth while stirring oatmeal, pouring orange juice, and rationalizing with my children that "we will have peach oatmeal tomorrow" and "no, you cannot have Cheetos".

However, I live for weekends. When there is plenty of time to "take it slow" in the morning and sit down as a family for a delicious breakfast. Last weekend I wanted a kid and adult friendly dish, these French Toast Sticks were spot on.

They are kid size and still have all of the delicious textures of french toast. Make these for Mothers Day this weekend and no one will be disappointed!

You Will Need:
8 slices Texas Toast, sliced into 4 strips each
4 large eggs
1 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla

Butter for cooking
Maple syrup

Slice Texas toast in 4 strips and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and melt 1 Tablespoon of butter. When butter is completely melted, dip one bread "stick" at a time into the egg mixture, allowing the excess to drip off, and place in heated pan. Make sure you do not overcrowd the pan.

Cook until all sides are golden brown. Remove and place on a serving platter and continue until all of the sticks are cooked.

Drizzle sticks with syrup or serve a bowl of syrup on the side for dunking.

Dust with powdered sugar if you like, serve and enjoy!

These sticks are great eaten with your hands or a fork and are perfect for little fingers.
