French Toast Bites

I think these French Toast Bites have to be one of my favourite breakfasts at the moment. They are simple to make and just use a few ingredients. I used a loaf of home-made bread that I had baked the day before. I cut it into nice thick slices and then into bite size pieces. You cover them in an egg and milk mix then brown in a frying pan. Once cooked they get covered in a sugar and cinnamon mix. The first two bites didn’t make it to the plate as I had to test them!

Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • A loaf of bread ( I used my day old home-made bread. I cut about 4 thick slices then cut them into bite size pieces)
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¼ - ⅓ cup of milk
  • 1-2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, for greasing the pan
  • Cinnamon and sugar mix
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup sugar
Instructions
  1. Slice your bread into 1 - 1.5 inch slices. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and ¼ cup of milk until combined. The mixture should be of a thick consistency. Pour in a shallow dish or plate, whichever is easiest for you.
  3. On another plate, mix together the sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
  4. Soak the bread slices in the mixture for about 2 minutes on each side. Meanwhile, over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a frying pan. Place however many slices of bread that fit the pan and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side. Melt more butter in skillet pan for the next batch, if needed.
  5. Once each French bite is cooked, you can then transfer to the sugar mix and coat until covered. Then place onto a serving plate.
  6. Serve immediately with butter, maple syrup, powdered sugar, and/or fruit.
Notes
This recipe was adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction

The kids had maple syrup and icing sugar on theirs while I added some fruit to mine. After everyone had finished breakfast, there were a few left, so I just left them out on a plate and every time we went by the plate one of us grabbed another one. They were very nice just on their own without any toppings.

I am going to be making these again soon, and I will take some more photos to show you how easy they are to prepare. I was short of photos for this yummy recipe as the school holidays was full of sleep ins and late breakfasts. The kids were very hungry the day these were made, and they asked “do you have to take photos, we are hungry!”

Happy baking!

What is your favourite breakfast at the moment?
