New Twist on French Toast

The kids are back in school which means breakfast happens at 6:15 in the morning at my house.  Needless to say, I am always looking for healthy breakfast ideas that I can fix quickly in the morning.  These french toast bites came together very quickly and they were a big hit this morning.  I always feel better about sending everyone off to school and work after they have had a good breakfast. 

French Toast Bites
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch salt
6 thick slices rustic bread, cut into 1" cubes
2 Tablespoons butter

Stir together cinnamon and sugar.  Whisk together eggs, buttermilk, milk and vanilla.  Place bread cubes in egg mixture and toss until all mixture has been absorbed.  Melt 1 T. butter in large skillet.  Add 1/2 of the bread cubes and cook until browned on all sides.  Transfer cubes to another bowl and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.  Repeat with remaining butter, bread and sugar.  Slide cubes onto skewers and serve with syrup for dipping. 

If you don't have time to skewer the cubes, serve them in a bowl along with toothpicks for dipping. 

Bon Appetit!
