Some of my favorite moments with my husband are in the morning before the kiddos wake up. These quiet moments we have together, while making breakfast give us an opportunity to really connect.

With the KING'S HAWAIIAN expanded bread line, it wasn’t hard to think of something new and exciting that the whole family can do and enjoy when it comes to breakfast!

Everyone loves French toast and my husband likes to pull out his mini-fryer and make some fun foods. So, with the shape and size of the KING'S HAWAIIAN Original Hawaiian Sweet Hot Dog Buns, we thought we'd fry them up and make French toast.

With the bread being sweetened it was a simple task.

French Toast Sticks

Ingredients:

  • KING'S HAWAIIAN Original Hawaiian Sweet Hot Dog Buns
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • Some kind of fryer oil (we used organic Canola Oil)

Directions:

Mix the eggs and milk in some kind of flat dish, you can even use a shollow plate. Next prepare another dish with the flour. We have a mini-fryer setup that we use to fry foods, but you can use a pan with oil in it. Be careful and start it on below med-heat.

Very simple, coat the bun halves in egg.

Then flour them very generously. I like to make sure they are coated in flour and scoop a little flour into every nook and cranny except the crust. Turn them over 1-3 times, not too much  making sure not to rub off the egg and flour coating.

Next was to drop them into the fryer. We used organic canola oil set to 300 degrees F.

They do not need to cook for more than a minute. Turn to liking. I then pulled them out when done and let them cool for 30 seconds on a paper towel with one on top. This process will take some getting used to to get that color you want.

Next I just topped them with some syrup, and you can go light on the syrup. These are almost sweet enough already to eat them without any added sweetness.

These came out so good. The extra flavor from the KING'S HAWAIIAN along with the awesome taste of the fried French toast sticks made this the ultimate breakfast.
