Hawaiian Shrimp Truck Special (Garlic Lemon Butter Shrimp).
Words cannot describe these french toast sticks.
I mean, they obviously can describe them, but they will never be able to do them justice.
This is without a doubt one of my favorite breakfast posts on this blog.
So, did you guys ever have those frozen french toast sticks when you were a kid? I did and while they weren’t my favorite breakfast food, I still liked them. Especially dipped in some syrup. I gave up eating those frozen french toast sticks a long time ago because I realized there was nothing good about them, at least ingredient-wise, BUT ever since then I have wanted to make my own.
For the last year I have been searching high and low for Texas Toast they used in those french toast sticks, but I haven’t been able to find it anywhere. Finally, the other week it hit me that I could just make my own variation of french toast sticks. And a better variation at that.
FYI, buttery croissants trump Texas Toast any stinkin’ day.
Go big or go home, right?
And caramelizing french toast?
Just wow, it’s honestly the best thing ever.
But coffee caramelized too? Yeah, so good.
I know some of you do not do coffee, and in that case you can simply leave it out, but I am not even a coffee drinker and I loved this. It’s not over powering in any way, but adds awesome flavor that works with the brown sugar/butter combo.
So I know that some of those sticks may look burnt, but they’re not. That’s just the beautiful caramelization.
These sticks are ever so slightly crunchy on the very outside and super soft and buttery on the inside. It really is an awesome thing.
And that gif up there? Yeah, it may be my new favorite thing to stare at. I mean, the french toast sticks just look so good, and I swear they taste even better.
I also have to say that my siblings loved these. There was not one thing they complained about. They dipped, ate and where happy. That in itself is a miracle.

Ok, so let’s start dippin.
Wow! Coffee, caramel, croissant, and french toast. How can you go wrong? Ahhh… maybe the only thing to make it better is great coffee. I think I might take this to our next church social. Thanks!!!
I hope you love the recipe Russell! Let me know how it turns out! xTieghan
I tried making these and it was really hard to NOT burn the butter. I ended up only being able to use half of what I made because the other half was very burnt. 🙁 Had such good potential!
Hi! So sorry you had trouble with the recipe. Can I ask why it was hard to not burn the butter? Was the pan smoking? Again, sorry for the trouble.
Hi Tieghan! I made these french toast sticks this weekend…hands down the BEST french toast I have ever had. I used mini croissants and they were adorable. The coconut whipped cream just melted into it and made the taste even more wonderful 🙂 Thank you for such a fantastic recipe that will absolutely go in my recipe box!
I made this French toast recipe this morning… OH GOSH!!! DELICIOUS!!!
THANKS FOR YOU AWESOME RECIPES!
I made this for Easter dessert. I know I know, but it looked so wondrously dessert like that I figured why not. The recipe was divine, except for one small issue that I am sure was my fault. I attempted to make the coconut cream whipped topping but my cream simply did not whip. I tried twice, starting afresh.
Can you explain in detail how you went about that part of the recipe? I would love to try this again.
I just bought croissants to make this for breakfast tomorrow. I’m going to post a photo on Instagram of it, but I’m warning you that it will be nowhere as pretty as your photos! 😉 Already licking my lips in anticipation!
Ya!! I hope you love these!!
hey! this sounds amazing! Is there a particular reason for using coconut milk?
Nope, I just love it! Feel free to use your favorite milk!
Hope you love these!
I love the amount of berries in this post! And french toast! Who doesn’t love french toast! Thanks for sharing this mouthwatering recipe!
Thank you so much, Trisha!
First of all, I couldn’t think of anything more delicious. Second, I swear these are the most gorgeous photos ever! You’re killing me! Can you come over and help me?! Or can I just come over to your house and watch you and then eat all your food?! Yes? Ok! 🙂
Hahah! Thanks so much, Melissa! Door is always open around here!
