What You'll Need

  • Knife
  • Cutting board
  • Bowl
  • Fork/whisk
  • Skillet
  • Spatula
  • Saucepan with lid
  • Spoon
  • Measuring spoons
  • Measuring cups

Directions

  1. Cut bread into half and then each half into half again to form 4 long sticks for a total of 24 pieces.
  2. In a shallow bowl, beat eggs, egg whites, milk, orange juice, vanilla, and cinnamon together, using a fork or whisk.
  3. Carefully add the bread sticks to egg and milk mixture to soak, turn to coat all sides. Then carefully remove egg-soaked bread pieces, gently shaking off extra liquid.
  4. Lightly spray a skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Lay soaked bread pieces in a single layer on the skillet. Cook until brown about 2 minutes. Flip sticks over with a spatula.
  5. Repeat Step 4 until all French Toast Sticks have been cooked.
  6. While French Toast Sticks are cooking, place berries, syrup, and cinnamon in a saucepan. Simmer over medium heat. Stir occasionally until berries are mostly broken down, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cover until ready to use.
  7. Serve Berry Syrup over French Toast Sticks.

Chef Tips

  • For a smoother syrup, carefully pour cooled mixture into a blender container and blend until smoother, about 10 seconds.
