We love this kid-friendly French toast created by Cindy Bates. Regular French toast can be soggy in the middle, but bite-size cubes mean more crispy surface area.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cut bread into 1-inch-thick slices. Trim crusts; cut bread into 1-inch cubes. In a bowl, beat eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Add 2 cups bread cubes and mix to saturate.

Step 2

Lightly butter a 10- to 12-inch nonstick frying pan. Place pan over medium-high heat. Lift bread cubes from mixture, shaking off excess liquid. Add cubes to hot pan and cook (adjust heat if necessary), turning as needed, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Keep warm.

Step 3

Repeat to soak and cook remaining cubes. Discard any remaining egg mixture.

My picky 6-year old son said, "Thanks for making this Mom. Can you make it every day?" My 8-year old had a similar reaction. I've made it for them twice now. I used sourdough bread (that's what we had in the house) so the slices weren't as thick as recommended. I think they liked the novelty of the smaller pieces, but if it didn't taste good, that would not have been enough to keep their interest. It was very easy to make and it disappeared quickly. We will certainly make this recipe again.

I made this for my little girl. I used organic orange, cranberry, and walnut bread. I also used vanilla & orange extract (1-tsp of each). I served with orange & strawberry slices, sausage, and cheese eggs. To say the least, everything was DELICIOUS.

So cute! Such as an easy switch from regular french toast. Not only kid approved, but college student approved as well. Check out my blog: www.gottatryit.webs.com

These are crazy good. Made them with King's Hawaiin bread rolls cut in half and they were a huge hit!

I made this for a Sunday brunch, and instead of cinnamon I put lemon zest in the batter, and served it with blueberries & maple syrup. Tasty!
