French Toast Fingers

Kids love anything on a stick. Bite-sized French toast skewers make a fun breakfast for them to munch before heading out the door. —Mavis Diment, Marcus, Iowa

    I add a teaspoon of vanilla to enrich the flavor. For Jeanelle just eat 2 not 3 sticks. That is equivalent to 1 and 1/3 slices of bread.

    Made these for camping. Followed directions, but added cream cheese and apricot jam. Froze on baking sheet,then bagged and labeled.At camp, I got my electric skillet outside, browned some sausage links --- while fingers thawed some. Then I slid the sausages to the outer edges of skillet and browned the french toast fingers. Enjoyed by young and old alike. Thanks for the idea.

    I used whole grain bread and added some cream cheese to the filling.

    Great hit with the kids! Super easy to make, and tasted great! The only change I made, was I added vanilla flavored soy milk instead of regular milk to the mix ... only because my son can't digest dairy. But they turned out great nonetheless. Great with sugar on top!
