Cinnamon French Toast Sticks

I have a tradition of an easy-to-eat breakfast while I watch the Rose Bowl parade. This has been one of our go-to breakfasts for special occasions. Served with eggs it’s a filling meal. Hand-held foods are always a good option for people living with Alzheimer’s.

Ingredients

  • 4 thick slices white bread (preferably stale) *
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Salt
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbs butter
  • Maple syrup

Directions

  1. Remove crust from bread then cut into 3 equal thick sticks.
  2. Combine the eggs, milk, and a pinch of salt in a bowl large enough to roll the breadsticks in.
  3. Combine the cinnamon and sugar on a plate.
  4. Melt 2 tbs butter in a large pan over medium-high heat.
  5. Roll the sticks in the egg mixture quickly (do not soak them), shake off the excess, and place in pan. Cook in 2 batches.
  6. Turn to cook each side until golden.
  7. Immediately transfer to the plate with the cinnamon-sugar and roll to coat. It’s important to do this quickly while they are hot.
  8. Melt remaining butter and cook the remaining french toast sticks.
  9. Serve immediately with maple syrup to dunk the sticks in.

 

  • Stale bread works better because it doesn’t soak up as much egg mixture. Leave the bread out overnight if that’s all the time you have to make it stale.
