Made these this morning, and I'm still reeling about how good they were!! This recipe certainly deserves more than 5 stars. This is a 10 star recipe as far as I'm concern. When getting the ingredients ready to make the bread strips, I noticed I needed to use more butter, and I used 7 tablespoons. I then liberally coated each side of the bread with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. I made these in my toaster oven, but had to bake them a bit longer. I set my dial on "toast" and toasted them for 15 minutes, then turned the bread strips over, and continued to toast the bread for another 5 minutes. I found that the 3 slices of bread is the exact amount needed to bake these on your toaster oven baking pan, and this could easily make 4 servings, if need be. I will now be looking for any excuse to make these again. And these would be wonderful to make for any special occasion. jenny_aggie07, I would like to thank you (and Verna Eaton from Taste of Home) for posting this recipe. This is one recipe that belongs in your recipe box, as it definitely is a keeper!!
Yummy treat for Saturday breakfast! I used light margarine spread instead of butter. It didn't get as browned as I expected but that could be my oven or because I used margarine instead of melted butter. It tasted great anyway though! I've never made cinnamon-sugar with brown sugar and I liked the change. Thanks for sharing! :)
I keep cinnamon sugar on hand for this and they are seriously good with hot chocolate. I do leave out the nutmeg.
