Churro French Toast Sticks

One tradition in our house on Easter morning is that we usually make a nice breakfast.  I had bought all the ingredients to make breakfast on Easter and then our plans ended up completely getting changed.  My 3 year old son was fine all day Saturday and wasn’t sick at all.  Unfortunately he woke up at 11:00 pm on Saturday night and was wheezing and had trouble breathing.  We could tell that he really didn’t feel good and his breathing sounded like a machine.  Plus he had a cough as well.  I thought that it sounded croupy, and we tried taking him out in the cold and letting him breathe the steam from a hot shower, but nothing was helping.  I was scared with how bad his breathing sounded and how fast it came on, so we decided to take him to the emergency room.
We got to the emergency room at 12:00 am on Easter and didn’t get to leave until 4:00 in the morning.  He had a fever when he was there and they checked him out to make sure he was okay.  He also got a breathing treatment, which really helped his breathing.  Once we got back to the house, we went straight to bed.  My son only slept until 8:00 a.m. and my husband let me sleep in a little bit more.  Our pediatrician called us and asked us to come in so they can check him, which was really nice considering it was Easter.  They told us it was just a sudden onset of croup.  Since we had to go to the doctor, I never got to make breakfast.
We ended up having a great Easter, but we stayed at home and rested and relaxed instead of going to Baltimore like we had planned.  My son felt a lot better that day due to the breathing treatment but ended up getting worse in the evening because no pharmacies were open and we could not pick up his medicine.  Because I was not able to make breakfast and we had nothing to eat for dinner since we were not planning on being home, we just decided to make breakfast for dinner.  The french toast sticks that we ate for dinner were so delicious and we can’t wait to have them again!
These Churro French Toast Sticks were fantastic and they were so easy to make.  They are a great breakfast or are great for breakfast for dinner.  I really like french toast sticks, I am not sure why I like them so much more than french toast, but I never realized they were so easy to make.  I don’t know why it never accorded to me to cut the bread, but now I plan on making french toast sticks all the time.
These french toast sticks are just like churros.  They are cooked like regular french toast and then rolled in cinnamon and sugar after cooking.  These are so delicious and taste great with maple syrup and also taste great served with strawberries and whipped cream.  I hope that you enjoy this easy breakfast, I know my family sure did!
Churro French Toast Sticks


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk (I used soy milk)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 8 slices Texas Toast or other thick sliced bread sliced into 1-inch wide strips
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. In a small bowl mix together the sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon and set aside.  
  2. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla. 
  3. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. 
  4. Individually dip the french toast sticks in the egg mixture and coat completely on both sides.  Then place the french toast sticks on the skillet. Work in batches if you don't have enough room on your skillet.  
  5. Cook each french toast stick for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. 
  6. Once done, working quickly, roll each french toast stick in the cinnamon sugar mixture, making sure to coat the whole stick. 
  7. Serve with maple syrup or strawberries and whipped cream.  Makes 32 french toast sticks.
