How to freeze french toast sticks
Personally I like to make a few batches of these texas toast french toast sticks and then freeze them for easy breakfasts. To freeze french toast sticks just cook them following the directions and then let them cool. Once they are cool spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray and lay the homemade french toast on the baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 2 hours until the french toast sticks are fully frozen. Then using a spatula remove them from the baking sheet and place in a gallon sized freezer bag. If you are making more then one batch of these you will need more freezer bags. Then place the frozen french toast sticks in the freezer. To reheat the french toast sticks, put them on a plate and microwave them. For my microwave it takes about 1 minute for 6 french toast sticks.
We use texas toast bread to make our french toast sticks because it is double the thickness of regular bread. The thickness soaks up more of the egg and milk mixture that you dip them in. Texas Toast also has a squarer shape then regular bread, so sometimes when making french toast with texas toast bread it is referred to as Texas style french toast.
If you are making french toast sticks with regular bread instead of making french toast sticks with texas toast bread then you will have thinner french toast sticks. It will still come out tasty, but I would suggest upping the amount of bread slices that you use.
How to Make French Toast Sticks
Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Sticks
- Cut each of the texas toast slices in to thirds, while doing so heat up your saucepan on the stove on medium head and coat with a small amount of pam spray (or whatever cooking spray you use).
- In a large bowl mix the eggs and milk together with a wisk. In a smaller bowl mix the cinnamon and sugar until well blended.
- Dip your slices of texas toast into the egg/milk mixture and place in your pan.
- Cook until side is golden brown and then flip to cook the other side. As soon as you remove them from the pan put them into the cinnamon/sugar mixture bowl and swirl them around to coat.
- Continue doing the same until all your french toast is made
