I have always loved regular French toast, but there is just something different about cinnamon french toast sticks. With only eight simple ingredients that could already be in your cabinets, it is easy to make this recipe without taking up too much of your morning. Thanks to Nagi, the creator of RecipeTin Eats, it is time to put that stale bread to use !

    Melt 2 tbsp of the butter in a large pan over medium high heat.

  • Step 7

    Immediately transfer to the plate with the cinnamon sugar and roll to coat. It's important to do this quickly while they are hot straight out of the pan so it sticks.

  • Step 8

    Melt remaining butter and cook the remaining French Toast sticks.

  • Step 9

    Serve immediately with maple syrup to dunk the sticks in.

Even though syrup is the most popular thing to put on french toast, don't stop there! Nutella, peaches, apples, bacon, coconut, and even vanilla ice cream can be used as extra add-ons.
