Breakfast and snack time couldn’t get more fun with these Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Bites! They are easy to prepare and are sinfully addicting!
Blogging is an interesting choice of profession. Granted, right now for me it isn’t profitable enough to become my technical profession, but instead is one I am aspiring towards.
I have now been managing Go Eat and Repeat for nearly 7 1/2 months. It’s hard to believe! My site has changed layouts several times since then, I’ve added social media accounts which I didn’t even have for myself before GEAR, and working on food photography is a continuous evolution. I feel like what my site is like today is vastly different than what it was when I started.
The thing is that there is just so much to learn about making blogging a career. I recently found this fantastic site that helps break down how one food blogger got her website to be so successful. The website is Food Bloggers Central and for any of you food bloggers who haven’t checked it out before, it is a definite must! It is a totally FREE website that has already helped me out so much! Since reading her site, I have been implementing tactics to help increase my blog traffic, improve my SEO, and work on better photography.
This past week I spent a ton of time researching and working on my site to make it better. I love cooking and sharing my recipes, and it would be my dream to have Go Eat and Repeat turn into what I know it truly can be.
It isn’t always easy. It is very hard a lot of times to not get frustrated or discouraged. I’m just so thankful for all the other bloggers out there who truly want to see each other succeed and prosper in a business they love. And to me, that’s the kind of business I want to be a part of.
The inspiration for this post comes from such advice from bloggers. I needed something fun, simple, and that worked well with other popular recipes of mine. The recipe that this is inspired by is my Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts. I mean, come on, how can you beat that? They are made without a fancy donut pan, using store-bought dough, AND are made healthier by baking them! They are one of my favorites to date on Go Eat and Repeat!
Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Bites are a fun variation to that recipe. They start with French bread which is then cubed. Dipping the bread in eggs and adding a layer of cinnamon sugar to the top make these bites truly decadent. They are addicting too! I probably ate a third of my bites while making and photographing this recipe. They are amazing!
Give these Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Bites a try! The hardest part will be not eating them all yourself!
PS. Any food blogger have any piece of good advice to offer an aspiring foodie?
- 1 loaf French bread
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- Pinch of salt
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 4 tbs butter
- Preheat oven to 350F. Slice bread into thick 1" slices. Then, cut each slice into cube sized pieces. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until bread cubes have become dried out and crispy. Remove cubes from oven and set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and salt. In a separate dish, combine cinnamon and sugar.
- Place a skillet on medium heat and melt 2 tbs butter. Once warm, dip half of dried bread cubes in the egg mixture, tossing until all sides of bread are coated in egg. Lightly drain bread with hands and add to the heated skillet. Saute bread, stirring occasionally, until bread is browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Once browned, add bread cubes into cinnamon sugar mixture and toss to coat all sides. Place tossed bread aside.
- Repeat the previous step with the remaining bread, adding in the final 2 tbs of butter into the skillet to melt before sauteing the second batch of bread.
- Serve french toast bites warm and with maple syrup if desired.
