These Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Bites are certain to take up permanent residence in your Sunday Brunch rotation.
I live for the weekends. Long, lazy mornings + Sunday brunch = Perfection. So today I’m sharing my Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Bites, a favorite breakfast treat sure to take up permanent residence in your Sunday Brunch rotation.
French Toast Bites are just as easy to make as traditional french toast but are so much more fun! They are the perfect size to pop in your mouth and the smaller size makes them a little crispier than traditional french toast. Plus the cinnamon sugar coating makes these French Toast Bites taste a little like a donut. They are oh-so-yummy!
Now the secret to perfect French Toast, bites or regular is all in the bread. First you need a good thick white bread. Like French bread or Italian bread. And second, it’s best if it’s a day or two old. You want it ever so slightly stale so that it doesn’t soak up too much of the egg mixture. If it soaks up too much, you run the risk of them being too soggy. So when making French Toast Bite, buy the bread Thursday or Friday for Sunday brunch.
Obviously you want to serve these with a side warm syrup for dipping (or drizzling.) Add a side of fresh berries to make it even more perfect. And if you really want to be indulgent, try dipping the French Toast Bites in chocolate and top with whipped cream. Heavenly.
- 1 egg
- 1 ½ tbsp butter
- ⅛ cup milk
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- ⅛ cup white sugar
- 3 thick slices of white bread
- In a bowl whisk the egg, butter, and milk. Set aside.
- Cut the bread in small cubes.
- On a separate bowl mix the cinnamon and the sugar.
- Dip each cube in the egg mixture and move to a hot skillet or pan.
- Cook them evenly until all sides turn brown (around 2 minutes).
- Once cooked, add the cubes to the second bowl and cover them the cinnamon sugar mix.
- Serve and enjoy.
Now, these French Toast Bites would actually make perfect party food if you are hosting a brunch. You can stick two of them on a cocktail skewer (I like to use these) and put a blackberry or strawberry at the top for a burst of flavor. This way you can skip the syrup. They look really cute on the plate and your guests will love them!
So there you have it. Perfectly poppable Sunday Brunch. And since it’s summertime and all the days kind of run together, there’s really no reason why you can’t made French Toast Bites any morning of the week! Or there’s always breakfast for dinner. That’s my next favorite right behind Sunday Brunch!
