I made these for a church breakfast and they worked out really well. I put cinnamon in the batter AND sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on top before putting in the oven. I didn't freeze them - just made them in the evening and warmed them up the next morning. Thanks for posting!
Very good recipe; instead of using regular bread I used mini 100% whole wheat bagels (Brand: Thomas)... My Son (18-month old) is in the picky eater stage and he doesn't like french toast but he lovedddd this recipe ;D. Thank you very much!!!
These are great. Made a batch yesterday & as soon as they were done DS wanted to eat them. Made as directed except sprinkled the cinnamon on the toast right before putting in oven. Thanks for recipe.
Doubled the recipe. Was only able to get 14 slices, but who cares?! Rather than baking/or making sticks, we just fried them in a pan whole. Delicious!! Thank you!
I followed the recipe exactly (but doubled it) and my grandsons (ages 6, 4, and 15 mo) enjoyed them... as did DS and DIL. The leftovers made it to the freezer but were finished off the next morning. I esp liked that they were baked rather than fried. Definitely will make again. Thanks for sharing this recipe! EDITED TO ADD: Made again today using a loaf of artisan bread sliced appx 3/4" thick. Did not cut into sticks. Baked on parchment paper and it did NOT stick... yea! Had to bake a bit longer b/c the bread was heavy and thick sliced. Leftovers are heading to the freezer for later enjoyment! :)
These were great fresh out of the oven. I have to agree with a previous reviewer, they are not as good reheated in the microwave (they seemed to get a little rubbery)
I followed the recipe as written except I used OJ and took out the vanilla. I made 6 batches at once and all of my batches stuck to the pan really badly so use lots of oil! I also recomend doing the egg batter in 1 or 2 batch bowls because my butter kept solidifying. These are awesome reheated, but the slight orange flavor was pretty much gone after freezing.
These turned out really well, except that they stuck to the pan horribly, even though it was greased. I think this was due to pouring the extra dip over them, as the sheet pan tilted a bit in the oven and the ones without the extra dip were fine. The ones that the dip pooled by were the ones that stuck badly. Next time I'll try it without using up the extra dip, but my 18 month old loves these and it definitely saves me time every morning!
These were YUM-O and way cheaper than the store bought kind. Aside from them sticking to the pan (I guess I didn't oil the pan well enough!) Thanks Jill!
These were awesome. I made enough to freeze for a month but with 5 kids and a husband in the house they were gone much faster than that! Thank you.
