Peanut Butter and Jelly French Toast Sticks
1/2 cup peanut butter
8 slices sandwich bread
1/2 cup jelly
5 large eggs
1/3 cup milk
2 tsp. vanilla
4 T butter
1/2 cup maple syrup, warmed
Spread peanut butter on 4 bread slices and the jelly on the other 4 slices, and combine to make 4 sammies.
In wide, medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and vanilla. (I only used 2 eggs for 2 sandwiches.)
In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 T butter over medium heat. When the butter is almost melted, dunk two of the sammies into the french toast batter and let the excess drip off. Place in the pan and cook until golden brown, 3-4 minutes for each side. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Let cool slightly and cut into sticks; serve with warm maple syrup. (I didn't serve with maple syrup--it's sweet and sticky enough!)
These are VERY filling...Riley ate half and I couldn't finish a whole sandwich. I think I enjoyed these more than he did! YUM!
