Why does everything on a stick taste better? I have to think that’s true because no matter what I feed my kids, if I mount it on a stick it disappears so quickly one can only assume I made them the most delicious thing ever. Not to mention food on a stick is bite size, looks cool, great to dip in sauces or syrup and well, just plain ol’ fun!
Breakfast on a Stick (serves 4)
1 cup milk (any kind of milk will work)
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 cups brioche, french or sandwich bread (cut into 2 inch cubes)
1 tablespoon butter or oil
16 strawberries, stems removed
2 bananas, sliced into 1/2 inch coins
8 wooden skewers
1. In a bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, honey and cinnamon.
2. Dip the bread cubes in the milk mixture to coat each side.
3. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat and cook the bread for 1 1/2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
4. Skewer the french toast cubes, strawberries and bananas and serve with maple syrup for dipping.
