Meal prepping can be very stressful for a parent. Two words come into mind when I think about meal prepping, picky kids! What kid isn’t picky? They have their noses turned up so high if it isn’t microwavable or previously frozen. My daughters’ love frozen french toast sticks. Pull them out of the freezer and pop them into the microwave. This can be a relief on those days when you are already running behind and the kids are screaming of starvation (and we all know there is no way they could possibly be starving that much). Then there are the days when we just want to fix our kids something ‘homemade’.
This past Wednesday as I watched the french toast sticks go round in the microwave , I thought to myself “I could so make these!” The only question of doubt was, would they love my french toast sticks as much as the ones in the freezer? Well, this recipe passed the test. My oldest gave it two thumbs up. Plus, it is easy-mom win! You can make this recipe a little more festive by adding purple sugar sprinkles to celebrate Halloween. You can also opt out of the sugary sprinkles or add more to make these french toast sticks even more fun.
I plan to switch out the color of the sprinkles for all the different holidays. A few ideas are: red and green for Christmas, pink, red, and white for Valentine’s Day, and any of the pastel blue, pink, green, and yellow colored sprinkles for Easter. I believe my kids would really go for these ideas! Another idea my oldest suggested was colored whipped cream for dipping. For this, add one drop of food coloring to the whipped cream and fold it in!
If you are looking for an easy breakfast recipe to kick off the morning without having to use the microwave, this recipe is perfect! You can prep the bread slices the night before to save even more cooking time. Get ready to have your kids wanting more of this non-freezer, non-microwavable breakfast. Just get that syrup ready for dipping and cheers to easy, kid-approved recipes 🙂
