What kid doesn’t love french toast sticks (or teenager, for that matter)?! And on a busy school morning, having some you can just pull out of the freezer and heat up is such a time saver!
I figured out that I can buy a loaf of Texas Toast for about $4 and make somewhere around 30 french toast sticks (give or take), or I can spend about twice that much for half the amount. This honestly seems like a no-brainer to me. Not to mention, we have the ease of a freezer friendly meal and YOU get to control the ingredients.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 5 slices of Texas Toast
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cups milk
- 3/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 1/2 tsp melted butter
Preheat your oven to 350° F.
Stack your Texas Toast. Using a serrated knife, cut your loaf into three.
Next, you’ll need a 9 x 13 inch pan. Add your milk, eggs, cinnamon and melted butter directly to your pan and whisk until blended.
Have a cookie sheet on hand for this next step. Place your bread in the pan and then flip over. Remove bread from pan and place on lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake in the oven at 350° F for 8 – 9 minutes. Remove from oven and lightly grease the tops of the french toast. Flip over your sticks and bake for another 8 – 9 minutes.
I like to serve mine with fresh fruit and a light dusting of powdered sugar.
Don’t forget your syrup!
To freeze: when french toast sticks are cool, place on a cookie sheet in the freezer for about two hours. Remove from freezer and place in a freezer safe Ziploc bag. To reheat, place on a microwave safe plate for 30 seconds to one minute.
