French Toast on a Stick

Note: This recipe involves cutting with sharp knives and using the stovetop. If your child is just learning to cook, make sure they are working with an adult.

Makes 4 servings


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Butter, for the pan
  • 1 small baguette, cut into 1-inch slices
  • 10 strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • Maple syrup or confectioners’ sugar, for serving
Special Equipment
  • Wooden or bamboo skewers


  1. Whisk the eggs in a pie plate or shallow bowl. Add the milk and cinnamon and whisk until it’s all mixed together.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Melt a pat of butter in the pan and spread it around.
  3. Dip both sides of each slice of bread into the egg mixture.
  4. Add the slices to the pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until light brown on the bottom. Flip each slice and cook the other side, then transfer to a cutting board.
  5. Cut the French toast into 1- to 2-inch squares. Cut the strawberries in half and slice the banana into ½-inch rounds.
  6. Slide a piece of French toast, a strawberry half, a slice of banana, and a blueberry onto a skewer. Continue until the skewer is full. Repeat to make more kebabs.
  7. Serve with maple syrup for dipping or confectioners’ sugar for sprinkling.
