Classic French Toast
When my kids know that there are French toast sticks in the freezer, they are more than happy to make time to sit down and eat.

Total Time2 hrs 13 mins
Servings: 12 slices
- 6 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk 1%
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 12 slices of bread if homemade: cut into 3/4 inch slices
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and cinnamon.
Melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Dip bread into the egg mixture to coat both sides.
Place in skillet, cook until golden, about 4 minutes, then flip and cook the other side 4 minutes.
Repeat with remaining slices of bread. Melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter in the skillet before frying each batch.
For Freezer Dippers
Allow the slices to cool on cooling racks until they reach room temperature. You definitely want to use cooling racks so that the air can pass through the grates, otherwise your toast can become soggy.
Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Once the toast slices are cooled, use a sharp knife to cut them into bite sized pieces. Depending on how many you've made, you can either lay the pieces flat on the sheet or stand them up if you have a lot as you'll get more on the sheet that way. Make sure that they aren't touching each other if possible, otherwise they may stick together. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer (if you don't have a large freezer, use plates or whatever else will fit) and allow the bite sized pieces to freeze completely, 5-6 hours or overnight.
Take the frozen bites out of the freezer and put them into zipper freezer bags. By freezing them individually first, they will not clump together in the freezer bag and you'll be able to easily remove as many or as little as you like. Alternatively, you can make individual servings by using zipper sandwich bags instead.
