Easy Cinnamon French Toast Sticks
This cinnamon French toast sticks recipe is similar to your traditional morning breakfast but is in fun stick shapes rather than bread slices. The bread sticks are soaked in a custard and then seared to perfect golden. These sticks are so good because they are crispy on the outsides and soft in the middles. Also, this easy french toast recipe has the bonus of spicy and nutritious cinnamon along with some sugar and vanilla. If you can’t resist the taste and texture of quality French toast, this breakfast recipe is the one for you.
Not all French toast is created equal. Some French toast recipes involve simply dunking the bread quickly in an egg mixture and searing to golden brown, while others are soaked too long and fall apart before they hit the frying pan. In the case of this cinnamon French toast recipe, the bread is generously soaked in a sweet and spicy egg and cream mixture, but not too long, so the pieces stay solid. This breakfast recipe involves searing the French toast in a skillet along with some butter for extra flavor. No matter if you are frying with oil or butter, or if you are shallow frying or deep-frying food, there are a few important pieces of information to note. For one thing, you always want to choose the appropriate fat for cooking. In the case of this easy french toast, butter is used for flavor and is the ideal choice for when you don’t require a fat with a high smoke point. The smoke point refers to how high you can heat a type of oil before it burns. If you were to deep-fry food that you wanted to get very crispy, you would want to use a fat that you could heat up to a very high temperature without it burning. Butter will brown or burn quickly because it has a low smoke point, which makes it best reserved for cooking foods that require quick cooking as opposed to deep-frying. If you don’t have butter on hand, however, don’t worry, since you can substitute for vegetable oil quite easily. In the case of this French toast stick recipe, you will want to make sure the butter is heated well before searing the French toast. If the fat isn’t heated properly, the French toast sticks may not become as crispy or golden as desired. Also, it is best to cook a few slices of French toast at a time, or else the pan may cool down too much.
