How To Make French Toast Sticks:
Making this french toast strips recipe requires just a little bit of prep and a handful of ingredients.
- Begin by preparing the bread by slicing off the crust along the sides and then cutting each slice of bread into 3 sticks that are about 1-inch wide.
- Prepare the egg wash by beating together the eggs, milk, and almond extract. Dip each stick quickly into the egg wash and allow any excess to drain off. Place the sticks in a non-stick or greased skillet and cook on each side until golden brown.
- Mix the cinnamon sugar together in a bowl or on a plate and roll the cooked French toast in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
