French Toast Kebabs
Sunday morning equals sweet breakfast in my house. I came across this cool and fun idea to convert French toast into kebabs at MarthaStewart.com (the 'Kids'-section of course!). I'm no stranger to sliding down sweet treats on a wooden stick. Two years ago, I made cupcake kebabs. Today, French toast kebabs. Next week, who knows, maybe even macaron kebabs! And why not? The whole idea seemed so silly and fun, which is probably why I loved these so much. Rating: 4 out of 5.
French Toast Kebabs: adapted from MarthaStewart.com
- 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
- ¼ cup milk
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ loaf unsliced dense white bread (such as pullman), cut into 1-inch cubes
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- ¼ cup fresh blueberries
- ¼ cup fresh raspberries
- 1 banana, sliced
- Maple syrup (optional)
- In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla. Stir in bread.
- In a large saute pan set over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Place half of the bread mixture in pan; cook, turning occasionally with a spatula, until browned on all sides. Cook remaining bread in the remaining 2 tablespoons butter as before.
- Thread bread cubes onto skewers alternating with blueberries, raspberries, and banana slices. Serve immediately with maple syrup, if desired.
Ps. Macaron kebabs would be so difficult! The skewer would break the macaron, don't you think? I look forward to seeing it if you go ahead with the idea.
