Baked French Toast Sticks

Baked French Toast Sticks


These baked french toast sticks are sweet. There is no doubt about that. I tend to be partial to malty beverages and sweet things, which is why I would pair this recipe with a maltier brew. Now, I completely understand that most of you will probably be making these french toast sticks for breakfast or brunch, but it is completely OK to go with a malty brew on a weekend morning! For this pairing, I like a vanilla porter or a lighter stout. I don’t normally like to pair with very heavy beers. There is a time and place for those styles, and I don’t think it’s when you are pairing with food (especially breakfast food). A vanilla porter will really enhance the sweetness from this dish, while still having enough bitterness to counter that same sweetness. You will get a similar vibe from a stout (even a flavored stout), it will just be a little more intense in flavor. Give them both a try and pick your favorite!

PSA: Don’t worry. I am not drinking beer during this pregnancy. :) My tried and true taste tester, Zach, has been willing to step up to the challenge.

The Recipe

Ever since I hit the second trimester, all I want is sweet foods. It’s not that I didn’t have a sweet tooth in the past, but I definitely leaned into the savory side of things most of the time. Lately though, all I want is sweet foods. I’m not going to lie…I have eaten my fair share of french toast in the past month. With that being said, it should come as no surprise that I am obsessed with these french toast sticks. They are the perfect sweet breakfast food, and they are perfect for dunking into your favorite maple syrup. I had to troubleshoot my way through this recipe, but I think I finally came up with the perfect formula. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Nutritional information is only an estimate. The accuracy of the nutritional information for any recipe on this site is not guaranteed.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes


  • 8 slices brioche bread cut into thirds
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup finely crushed frosted cereal like Frosted Flakes; I used a food processor to get a really fine crumb.


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large shallow bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, honey, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  • Add the brioche bread to the bowl and let soak for at least 30 seconds to absorb the liquid. Meanwhile, mix together the remaining 1 tbsp cinnamon, sugar, and frosted cereal.
  • One by one, transfer the coated brioche bread (letting any excess liquid to drip off) to the cinnamon, sugar, and cereal mixture. Toss to coat, and then transfer the bread to the lined baking sheet.
  • Bake the french toast for about 15-20 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove from oven and serve immediately with maple syrup if desired.
  • NOTE: Baking time will vary. I find that it takes me a little bit longer to get a golden brown crust, but it may take you a shorter amount of time. I suggest starting with about 10 minutes and working from there. You may also decrease the oven temperature to 375°F and then cook the french toast sticks for longer.
