What to Serve with French Toast Sticks

French toast is a deliciously sweet breakfast in its own right and is delicious with a big glass of ice-cold milk or a cup of coffee. However, you can make it a part of an even bigger breakfast feast when pairing it with:

  • Eggs
  • Bacon
  • Sausage
  • Ham
  • Hashbrowns
  • Homefries
  • Biscuits and gravy


  • Dip your bread strips just long enough to thoroughly coat them on all sides. If you soak them too long, they'll fall apart.
  • Cook your French toast sticks on medium heat. This allows them to cook through and become golden rather than burned.
  • Be sure you thoroughly combined your egg mixture before dipping the bread.
