My love affair with rediscovering french toast continues. Last week it was Apple French Toast, a pile of french toast dripping with self saucing stewed apple syrup. The week earlier than it was Parmesan French Toast (insanely delicious!). This week it’s french toast sticks – devour it together with your arms (tick), tastes like cinnamon doughnuts but a complete lot more healthy (double tick)!
Cinnamon French Toast Sticks
I’m loving coming up with recent takes on french toast! Growing up I all of the time loved french toast nevertheless it was all of the time the vintage model drowning in syrup. When I was in uni, I found how nice it was to pile bacon onto it, and yes, nonetheless drown it in maple syrup. I used to name this a “Heart Attack On A Plate”. This was earlier than the day when “sweet and salty” turned all of the fad and everybody I made this for had been doubtful till they took their first mouthful – then they had been converted for life.
I digress. Back to those French Toast Sticks. Two substantial issues it has going for it:
1. Food you devour together with your fingers. Need I say anymore?
2. Tastes like cinnamon doughnuts. I can’t admit to any of my pals that I secretly love cinnamon doughnuts, deep fried puffy goodness dusted with sugar. It’s on my checklist of what I name “Dirty Foods”, meals this is oh-so-bad-for-you-I-know-I-shouldn’t-eat-but-secretly-love. Throughout this weblog there may be no longer any doubt that I might be disclosing lots of my generic Dirty Foods. You will seemingly be horrified. Or perhaps not. Maybe quite a little bit extra folks than I assume secretly love KFC Popcorn Chicken.
French Toast Sticks – French toast you may devour together with your fingers, tastes like cinnamon doughnuts and is at the desk in 15 minutes!
The key to french toast sticks which are stiff sufficient to go with up with out flopping is to make use of stale bread and to make use of a block loaf you may cut your self into thick slices (the thicker the sticks, the so much less they flop). This is the method I like my french toast sticks, but for those who don’t have a stale block loaf, it nonetheless tastes simply as delicious utilizing pre-sliced sandwich bread, it’s going to simply sag a little bit while you go with it up.
I truly do suggest utilizing stale bread the position attainable for french toast – any french toast. It makes a vast difference simply due to the fact recent bread soaks up too quite a little bit egg combination – even for those who dunk it in truly speedy – and you’ll cease up with french toast this is soggy at the inside.
This recipe purely takes about 15 minutes to make, and is tremendous easy. French Toast you may devour together with your arms – anything that no kid, substantial and small, can perhaps resist! – Nagi x
