In celebration of National French toast day, here is a delicious breakfast you can try at home for those busy mornings or at your KES Club. Preparing breakfast items ahead of time can make mornings go smoothly. Making items that can be frozen and pulled from the freezer can make things much easier. Usually I try to make bigger batches of breakfast items on the weekend and freeze the rest for my weekday mornings. It’s a great recipe for your KES Club as well, it can be prepared in advance and frozen and popped in the toaster to warm up that morning. Try this recipe today:
Freezable French Toast Sticks
- 12 slice – bread, whole wheat
- 8 large – egg white
- 1 1/2 cup – almond milk, unsweetened
- 1/4 cup – honey
- 1 teaspoon – vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoon – almond extract
- 2 teaspoon – cinnamon
- 1 – cooking spray
- 2 cup – blueberries
- 2 tablespoon – butter, unsalted
- 1/4 cup – maple syrup, pure
- Cut bread slices into cubes (enough for 6 cups).
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk, honey, vanilla, almond extract, and cinnamon. Whisk well.
- Spray a 9X13 baking dish with cooking spray and fill it with the bread. Pour the liquid mixture over top, and toss to ensure all the bread is moistened. Allow to set for at least 30 minutes, then mix in the blueberries.
- Bake at 350°F for 40-45 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed and the bread is golden.
- Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving. Top with butter and maple syrup if desired.
