French Toast Sticks

Hiland Dairy Heavy Cream and eggs plus a bit of sweetness make a delicious custard-like coating for these French Toast Sticks. These freeze very well ahead of time so you can heat and go in the morning.

French Toast Sticks

Prep Time30 minutes
Cook Time14 minutes


  • 2 cups Hiland Dairy Heavy Cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with the butter. You will either need to use two baking sheets or bake in two batches.
  • Cut the bread slices into ½ to ¾ inch strips. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the Hiland Dairy Heavy Cream, eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.
  • Take each bread strip and dunk it into the egg mixture, making sure to coat the entire strip generously. Continue until all the bread is coated. (or half the bread if baking in two batches)
  • Bake for 7 minutes and then flip each french toast stick over. Bake for another 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack.
  • Serve while warm with syrup or your favorite toppings!
  • To Freeze: Cool the french toast sticks completely. Place the sticks in a ziploc bag or freezer safe/airtight container and store in the freezer. To reheat- place in oven at 350 degrees for 5-7 minutes or in a toaster until warm. You can wrap them in a paper towel and microwave them for 2 minutes. (they will not be as crispy in the microwave, but it’s nice and quick.)

It’s Back to School time yet again and the smell of #2 pencils is in the air.

I love this time of year, full of new beginnings and excitement. Along with all the excitement is a parent pumping themselves up for another year of quick breakfasts, lunch box ideas and after school snacks.

I know this scenario very well, I am always on the lookout for breakfast ideas that are quick because apparently time moves quicker before 8am when you are trying to get kids to get dressed, get their stuff and eat something. Why can no one find their shoes??

Hopefully I can help with at least one of the morning tasks with these easy, quick and delicious French Toast Sticks made with a custard-like coating. Not only are they delicious, but you can make a big batch, freeze them and then heat them up in just a couple minutes in the morning.
