French Toast Sticks

My mom had the great idea of making a boatload of pancakes and french toast sticks and freezing them. This has been a lifesaver for me since she had to go home and leave me to fare in the mornings with my newborn and toddler. My son loves these and it has been so great to be able to pop a few in the microwave and run out the door when we are running late. I know you can easily buy these at the store but I like knowing exactly what's in them, plus saving money is always nice. 

1 loaf of Texas toast
8 eggs
2/3 cups granulated sugar
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 

Heat a griddle to medium or around 350 degrees F.

Beat the eggs, vanilla, sugar, cream and cinnamon in a large bowl. 

Cut the Texas toast into fourths. 

Dip enough of the bread pieces into the egg mixture to cover the pan while leaving about in inch between sticks.

Consider not submerging the tips of the sticks in the mixture since that portion will not be grilled directly on the pan. 

Butter the grill and grill each side of the sticks until golden brown.

Place cooked sticks on a cookie sheet and allow to cool completely at room temperature. 
(Only place 1 layer of sticks on the sheet)

Place the uncovered cookie sheet in the freezer. Allow the sticks to freeze completely. Place sticks in a large freezer bag. Best to enjoy within a month.
