Freezer breakfast dishes make my morning so much easier! I have made my own English muffin sandwiches and breakfast burritos in the past with a lot of success in avoiding the drive threw! I found this idea several years ago and adjusted to to work for what I needed. These French Toast Sticks keep well in the freezer for 3 months.
Start with preheating your oven to 375°.
Then continue with cutting up the Texas Toast in thirds, if you want thinner strips it’s ok to cut them in fourths!
Setting the bread strips off to the side. It’s time to mix up the dipping batter. I start with cracking all the eggs and beating them up prior to mixing in the milk, vanilla, butter, and cinnamon. Once these are mixed in whisk these ingredients together.
When the solution is well whisked together you are ready to dip your bread to make your French Toast Sticks! I dip my bread using tongs and make sure my bread is completely covered on all sides prior to placing the dipped sticks on a well greased pan.
I found half a loaf filled two cookie sheets nicely without feeling like I was cramming the french toast sticks too close together. After my pans were full I placed them in the oven for a total of 16 minutes. Make sure to flip them at the 8 minute mark.
Once the french toast sticks are done cooking they are ready to eat today for breakfast (or dinner if you enjoy breakfast for dinner like we do)! Or you can prepare them for the freezer, let your sticks cook for approximately 20 minutes on the sheet pan prior to placing the whole pan into the freezer for 1-2 hours. Once they are frozen completely remove the french toast sticks from the tray and place them in a freezer Ziplock type bag.
I recommend to use the oven for reheating, putting the french toast sticks in at 375°. Reheat the sticks for 10 minutes or until they are completely heated through. You can also microwave the sticks if you are in a hurry. Set your microwave for 30-45 seconds on high and enjoy!
