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!
- 4 White Bread (slices, prefer day old, ends removed)
- 1-2 tbsp Blueberry Jam (Smucker's Triple Berry or Blueberry Lemon Jam)
- 1 Egg(s)
- 1/4 Cup Milk
- a pinch Salt
- 1-2 tbsp Unsalted Butter
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon (ground)
- 5 tbsp Sugar
- Maple Syrup (for serving)
French Toast Sticks
Cinnamon-Sugar Coating (optional)
- 1. In a bowl, whisk milk, egg, and salt until fully combined. Make sure no lumpy egg-whites are hanging around. If using fork, whisk for good 30 seconds to make a smooth mix.
- 2. Remove ends of four white square bread slices.
- 3. Spread 1/2 tbsp fruit spread each, on two of bread slices.
- 4. Place the other slice on top and slice the sandwiches into 3 sticks each.
- 5. Heat butter in a wide non-stick pan. (if using smaller pan, use only half of the butter for each batch.) Dip sandwich sticks in egg mixture from all sides (don't leave them in, just dip and remove or bread will get soggy.) Cook each side for 2 minutes on medium heat or until golden brown.
- 6. Yes, I also cook the sides to lock-in fruit spread and also to make'em crispy.
- 7. If planning to coat in cinnamon sugar. Mix two in a wide plate. Transfer hot french toast sticks into cinnamon-sugar and coat all sides.
- 8. Transfer to a serving plate. Serve with maple syrup on side.
