Freezer French Toast Sticks

So I am always looking for New Easy Healthy breakfast, lunch and snack ideas for the kids.  Also we are trying to use all the food in our fridge and not throw anything away.  Well I found a few bags of bread that was no longer great for sandwiches but was still totally edible.  So I searched around and found ideas for day old bread online.  I decided to make French Toast Sticks which the kids devoured, however I still made way to many so I found you could freeze them.


3 eggs

1/2 milk

1/4 Orange Juice

1 tbsp vanilla

Several Pieces of Day old bread cut into 1” strips

Mix eggs, milk, OJ and vanilla.  Pore over day old bread.  Heat skillet to Med High with a bit of oil or butter.  Brown on both sides.

Serve with dippers: We used apple sauce and maple syrup today.  I think yogurt would have been a good dipper as well. 

Freezer: So my kids loved them but I made way to many.  I froze them (just throw them in a freezable container) and reheat in the microwave or toaster oven (great for a quick before school breakfast).  That reminds me I have to go retrieve the one I attempted to reheat in the regular toaster and it got stuck! 


  1. I think I will try that next time instead of just freezing the bread to make bread crumbs.

  2. we have french toast all the time but I never thought to make a larger batch and freeze it. Good idea!

  3. Good idea. I will make a huge batch of waffles or pancakes once every week or two and freeze them. Totally easy to then throw in the toaster, plus I know all the ingredients!!

  4. I freeze pancakes and waffles as well, I just freeze what is left over from the batch. My kids love them frozen. Also I feel better about giving them those instead of eggo or similar (cheaper to of course).
