It was just last week that we celebrated World Egg Day, and I shared with you 8 of my favourite egg recipes. In addition to the amazing egg pass video put together by the Egg Farmers of Canada.
Our celebration of all things eggs continued well into the weekend. Between preparing homemade egg mcmuffins and French Toast Kabobs, you could say we got our fair share of eggscellent time spent in the kitchen as a family.
The French Toast Kabobs is one recipe that my kids devoured. Not only that they loved that they were able to help out in the kitchen by preparing them. Sure they may not have been able to cook the bread, but at the very least they were able to assist with assembly of the kabobs. It made for great family time. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend a Saturday morning!
French Toast Kabobs Recipe
(Original recipe found on Eggs.ca)
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup milk
- 4 thick slices (1 inch) whole grain bread
- 3 medium bananas
- 18 strawberries
- 3/4 cup fruit-flavoured or vanilla yogurt
- Whisk eggs and cinnamon in shallow bowl until blended. Whisk in milk and vanilla. Set aside.
- Coat large skillet in cooking spray, and heat skillet over medium heat.
- Dip one slice of bread at a time in the egg mixture, ensuring it is evenly coated. Remove from egg mixture, and allow for excess egg to drip off before placing bread in hot skillet.
- Place bread in skillet and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until bottom is golden brown. Flip and cook until other side has browned as well.
- Remove bread from skillet and place on cutting board. Cut each slice into 3 equal strips and then each strip into 3 cubes. Cut each banana into 6 slices.
- Thread a cube of bread onto 8-inch (20 cm) wooden skewer. Alternately add fruit and bread so skewer has three bread cubes and three portions of fruit. Repeat with remaining bread cubes and fruit, making 12 skewers.
- Serve the french toast kabobs alongside yogurt for dipping.
