Equipment

  • 2 Baking Dishes
  • Foil
  • Wire Rack

Ingredients

  • 4 Thick-Cut Slices of Bread (we like brioche or Texas Toast)
  • 4 Eggs, whisked
  • ½ cup Heavy Cream (you can substitute milk if you'd like)
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon
  • Berries or syrup, for serving

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350F / 177C.
  • While oven is heating, line a baking dish with foil and place a cooling rack on top. (You can bake the French Toast Sticks directly on the baking dish, but they won't be as crisp on all sides.) Spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Slice bread into even "sticks".
  • In one shallow baking dish combine eggs, cream and vanilla in a shallow baking dish. Whisk well.
  • In a second shallow baking dish, stir together sugar and cinnamon until evenly combined.
  • Roll bread sticks in egg mixture until they are well coated. Then roll them in cinnamon-sugar and place on baking dish, leaving at least ½ inch between each stick.
  • Bake until crisp and golden brown on top, 20 to 24 minutes. (These do not need to be turned during cooking, but do check them after about 15 minutes. If the tops are starting to turn dark brown, you can flip them over to prevent over-cooking.)
  • Serve immediately with berries or syrup or other toppings that you'd like!
