French Toast on a Stick

French Toast on a Stick from Weelicious.com

I was working on this French Toast on a Stick late one afternoon and was having "one of those days" -- I was overwhelmed, tired, a bit cranky...and I still had to get dinner on the table. Yet in spite of my bad mood, I was revitalized by the expressions on Kenya's and Chloe's faces when they came home and saw my latest creation sitting on the kitchen counter.

Right at that moment, the notion of having to then make what I consider classic dinner foods (i.e. pasta, chicken, fish, rice) went out the door and I declared it backwards day. We were going to have breakfast for dinner! My kids were beyond thrilled. Of course when I steamed some broccoli to go along with the meal, Kenya was quick to point out that I never cook broccoli for breakfast -- darn, kids are quick. Maybe I should have put the broccoli on a stick, too.

    I made french toast for dinner last Saturday. We all loved it. My recipe has a little vanilla and a little cointreau and the kids love it too.

    hmmm...I bought potato bread, sliced. I am trying to figure out how many slices I will need for this recipe.

      Probably 4 or 5, but sliced bread will probably be too thin. Let me know how it works out!

    These were a HUGE hit with my 3 year old daughter! She even helped assemble them. We used regular sliced bread because that's what we had on hand and it actually worked out just fine for us. I just cut the bread into smaller pieces after cooking the slices whole. Thicker bread would probably be even better though. Thanks for the great idea!
