French Toast Sticks

We made this for a freezer meal and BJ and I fell in love with the recipe. It is SO GOOD. We've made it several times since then and it rarely makes it into the freezer.

Ingredients:

10 slices thick-cut bread
1/4 cup butter, melted
4 eggs
1/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch salt


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • Cut the thick bread slices into thirds.
  • Combine remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl, beat well to combine.
  • Dip bread sticks into the egg mixture one at a time, and place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake in a 350º oven for about 30 minutes.
  • Flip the sticks over halfway through baking time to crisp both sides.
  • To freeze, allow to cool completely before wrapping well in a freezer bag.
  • To serve: pop in a 350 oven for about 8 minutes to refresh. Alternatively, they can be reheated in a microwave for a minute or two, but they will lose their crispness.

How necessary do you think it is that it be thick bread? I know you use homemade bread, but do you think using normal store-bought bread would be a disaster? I wanna try it, but let's be honest--I'm not gonna make bread.

If you're doing french toast sticks I'd say you'd want the thicker bread, just so it's, well, thicker. And more...square... in circumference. But if you're just making regular french toast, which is also nummy, regular bread would be just fine.
