Every time I see a pack of french toast sticks in the frozen food aisle, I can’t help but buy them. They’re just so darn cute! And, as it turns out, they’re pretty delicious too. The only problem is that I never knew how to cook frozen french toast sticks!
Do I cook them frozen? Or should I thaw them first? And if I thaw them, should I bake or fry them? Well, no more guesswork for me! After plenty of trial and error (and a few burned batches), I’ve perfected the art of cooking and making them. And here I will share my experience with you’ll.
How To Cook Frozen French Toast Sticks In Oven?
- Start by preheating your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Remove the sticks from their packaging and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Ensure the sticks are not touching each other, preventing them from cooking evenly.
If your sticks are particularly thick, you may want to give them a quick whack with a rolling pin before cooking. This will help them cook through more evenly.
Once your oven is preheated, bake them for 12-14 minutes until golden brown and cooked. Serve immediately with syrup, and Enjoy!
How To Check If Your Toast Sticks Frozen Are Cooked Through?
The best way to tell if they are cooked is to use a kitchen thermometer. Stick the thermometer into the center of one of the sticks and make sure that it reads at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit. If it doesn’t, pop them back in the oven for a few more minutes.
Another way to tell if they’re done is to cut one in half. The center should be cooked all the way through and no longer be icy or doughy.
If you find that they are browning too quickly on the outside but still raw in the middle, cover them loosely with foil and continue cooking until they’re done.
How Frozen French Toasts Sticks Compare To Fresh?
If you’re wondering how frozen ones are as compared to fresh ones, the answer is: it depends.
They’ll obviously be tastier if you’re making them from scratch with fresh bread. But the frozen version will be better if you’re starting with store-bought or day-old bread.
That’s because the freezing process helps to firm up the bread and prevent it from getting soggy when cooked.
How To Enhance The Flavor Of Your Frozen French Toast Sticks?
If you want to enhance the flavor of your toast sticks, you can do a few things.
First, try soaking them in a mixture of milk and eggs for a few minutes before cooking. This will help them absorb more flavor and become even more delicious.
Another way to add flavor is to sprinkle some cinnamon or sugar on the sticks before cooking. Or, you could try dipping them in a mixture of syrup and melted butter. Yum!
What Toppings To Serve With Your French Toast Frozen Sticks?
There are endless possibilities for toppings for your toast sticks. Of course, you can always stick with the classic syrup and butter combo. But if you’re feeling adventurous, try one of these delicious variations:
- Maple syrup and bacon bits
- Honey and sliced bananas
- Powdered sugar and berries
- Chocolate chips and whipped cream
The possibilities are endless! So go ahead and get creative. Your taste buds will thank you.
