– Wheat bread – Eggs – Milk – Vanilla extract – Unsalted butter – Maple syrup and diced fruit for serving.
Cut bread into sticks. Add the eggs, milk, and vanilla to a wide, shallow bowl. Mix with a fork or a small whisk.
Dip each piece of bread into the egg mixture, turning over with a fork to coat all sides. Add a sliver of butter to a nonstick pan to melt.
Add batter-dipped sticks and cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip over to cook on the other side until golden brown. Serve warm with optional toppings/dips.
Omit the butter. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottoms.
Omit the butter. Place batter-dipped sticks onto the greased tray. (I use nonstick spray.) Air fry at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.
Store leftovers in an airtight storage container in the fridge for up to 5 days or place into a freezer bag and remove as much air as possible. Freeze for up to 6 months.
