French Toast Dippers


Well hello again! I took a little hiatus from the blog for something called moving. It's the pits if you didn't already know. At least the whole packing/unpacking/building a pantry part. Did I mention that we FINALLY finished our pantry after almost 3 weeks of living here? Hallelujah! That might seem fast for some, but it felt like forever.

Anyway, I have no idea why I haven't posted this recipe sooner because it is one of my all-time favs. When I was little, I loved getting French Toast Dippers from good old Burger King for breakfast on those random occasions we would go there in the morning. These are seriously a comfort food for me and SO much better than any fast food joints.

They are crispy, sweet, salty and are perfectly dippable. Kids will love em, you'll love em and did I mention how easy they are to make? One of my favs I tell you.
And if you love french toast as much as I do, be sure to check out this post about seven different ways to make it!

French Toast Dippers
Adapted from The Pampered Chef
6-8 slices of white bread
3 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 Tbsp. sugar
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. butter
maple syrup for dipping

1. Cut each slice of bread crosswise into four sticks using a pizza cutter. Place bread on cooling rack for 20 minutes to dry out slightly.
2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place cereal, sugar and cinnamon in a blender and blend until mixture turns into fine crumbs. Pour crumbs into a 9-inch pie plate.
3. In a 2-qt. bowl; mix eggs, milk, vanilla and salt with a whisk.
4. Dip one bread stick at a time into egg mixture and then roll in crumb mixture. Place in a 9x13-inch pan. (You may need to use an 8x8 pan as well.)
5. Place butter in bowl and microwave on HIGH 30 seconds or until melted. Slowly pour butter over breadsticks.
6. Bake 17-19 minutes or until hot and crispy. Remove pan to cooling rack.
7. Serve with maple syrup for dipping.
