  • 3-4 thick stale slices of white or whole wheat bread
  • butter to grease your pan
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Cut each bread slice into 3 or 4 strips, depending on how thick you want your fingers. I cut mine into 3 strips each and removed the crusts.
  2. On a small plate, combine the sugar and cinnamon, and set aside.
  3. In a large frying pan, melt butter over medium heat.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Quickly roll each bread stick in the egg mixture, making sure not to soak the bread. Shake off any excess, and place each stick in the pan.
  5. Fry each side of the bread sticks until golden. (You may need to cook everything in two batches, depending how large your pan is!)
  6. Immediately transfer each French Toast Finger to the plate with the cinnamon sugar and roll to coat.
  7. Serve immediately, with maple syrup, nutella, jam, or honey for dunking.

Recipe Notes
