Baked French Toast Sticks

We all know kids like to eat things they can dip, and there are fast food chains out there who serve up french toast sticks, as well as the frozen food section. We had long ago tried the frozen variety and I thought they were just really greasy and soggy and didn't buy them again. Well here is a way to make your own at home, baked, hot from the oven. My little food critic said that these were the "best breakfast ever" and that we should make them all the time! Now that being said, I knew my little boy would not want the crunchy coating so I only coated half of the pieces in cornflakes and gave him the plain. {So picky!} But personally I loved the crunchy coating so decide according to your taste!

*Printable Version*

What You Need:
6 slices texas toast {preferably day old}
4 eggs
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup crushed cornflakes or frosted flakes
powdered sugar, optional

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare a greased baking sheet.
Cut each piece of bread into thirds and place into a 13x9 baking dish.
Whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon and pour over the top of the bread, turning to coat. Place the coated pieces on the greased baking sheet and sprinkle with the crushed cereal, if desired. Turn to do both sides, if desired. Bake for 8-10 minutes on each side or until golden. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired. Serve with syrup for dipping. Enjoy!
