The Best French Toast Sticks (Easy Back to School Breakfast or Lunch)



2 slices of day-old crusty thick-cut bread (we like sourdough), crust trimmed slightly, cut into thick ‘sticks’ (for better dipping!)

2 eggs
1/4 cup heavy cream (preferred), half and half or milk
1/2-1 tbsp maple syrup or cane sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Ghee or coconut oil for searing

Maple Syrup, Honey or Whipped Cream for serving


  1. Slice bread and set aside.
  2. In a low bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon.
  3. One at a time, soak toast in egg mixture, being sure to fully saturate. Repeat for all slices.
  4. Heat a drizzle of ghee or coconut oil to medium-high in a sautee pan. Add sticks in one layer, working in batches if needed. Sear for 1-2 minutes per side, until golden. You’ll know they’re done if there is no more egg mixture released when lightly pressed (a little moisture is ok- you don’t want them too dry!)
  5. Serve with maple syrup, honey or whipped cream to dip!
