Fruit Spread Stuffed French Toast Sticks

Keeping my promise! Sharing, an easy kid's favorite snack - Stuffed French Toast Sticks. Berries and French Toast go great together! For a delicious twist, I stuffed the French Toast with Triple Berry Fruit Spread.

Buttery milk and egg soaked bread slices, stuffed with Smucker's Triple Berry fruit spread, pan fried for a delicious hard-to-resist sweet treat! 

You know, what's even more delicious? Just 5 minutes quick cooking time! 

First time I made French Toasts sticks for my friend's daughter, for dinner! I know!! You reading correct, for dinner! She was simply refusing to eat anything I cooked. My friend asked me to give her something sweet and finger food. Well, I hardly had any frozen snack or sweet in my freezer. So I made her cinnamon and sugar coated French Toasts sticks. Amazingly, a few minutes earlier she was saying "no" to everything and French Toasts sticks... she finished in no time!

These French Toasts Sticks have an extra-special layer of sweet fruit spread sandwiched between two layers of toasts. The good thing is, Smucker’s® Fruit & Honey Triple Berry Fruit is naturally sweetened with honey......No artificial sweeteners or corn syrups!! This delightful Triple Berry spread make these  not-so-eggy French Toast Sticks even more scrumptious!

Recently, when J.M. Smucker Company contacted me to share their new, Smucker’s® Fruit & Honey Fruit Spread with you..... I felt, it is time to share this updated-classic Breakfast recipe with you! 

Smuckers Fruit and Honey Fruit Spread | chefdehome.com

Last week, I bought few jars of Smucker’s® Fruit & Honey Fruit Spread from my local Kroger store, Ralph's.

I got all three flavors - Blueberry Lemon, Strawberry, and Triple Berry. We opened Strawberry Spread to try on our Breakfast Toast. But I had my eyes on Triple Berry all this time. I decided to use it for stuffing in French Toast. Spread had chunks of whole berries with sweet taste of honey and signature aroma of berry preserve. One of my favorite!

What is the best way to get less-soggy, not falling-apart and perfect French Toasts? It's simple! Just use at-least a day-old white bread. Two days is even better. In my home, since it's just two of us, white bread lasts for 4 days sometimes. So towards the end of week, I often have a 'French Toast Breakfast Day' in menu. 

Whenever we eat a Sunday brunch out, I try to stay away from those eggy french toasts served in restaurants. Even though Vishal loves egg toasts, but those restaurant French Toasts are too heavy for him as well. So at home I use a very lite egg to milk ratio. Trust me, these French Toast sticks are not anyway heavy like sold in diners.

So I splurged a little and coated these sticks with some Cinnamon and Sugar! However, you can totally skip it. These taste delicious even without this coating.

For stuffing, you can use any of the three Fruit Spreads! I removed the sides of bread for neat presentation but you can even leave that.

Wish you a great day ahead! -Savita
