Ingredients

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. Cut each slice of bread into 1 inch wide "sticks". In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla, maple, nutmeg, salt, and 1 tablespoon melted butter.
    3. Dip each breadstick into the egg mixture and toss to coat. Remove, allowing any excess to drip off back into the bowl. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining bread. Bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake 10-15 minutes more, or until lightly golden.
    4. Meanwhile, add the remaining 5 tablespoons butter to a medium pot set over medium heat. Allow the butter to brown lightly until it smells toasted and nutty, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat.
    5. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, and cinnamon.
    6. Brush each french toast stick with browned butter and then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar...or toss to coat for extra sweetness. Serve warm with maple syrup.

Notes

To Freeze: Bake the french toast sticks as directed and coat in cinnamon sugar. Arrange the french toast sticks in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze 1-2 hours, until firm. Transfer the french toast sticks to a freezer safe container and freeze for 3-4 months. To warm, microwave for 1 minute, flip and microwave 1 minute more. Times will vary depending on your microwave.
