Oven baked French toast fondue makes standard breakfast fare into an event! Delicious on the weekend and great for brunch parties too.
Breakfast, brunch, and all the tasty things. We’re talking the stuff you make on the weekend, not that cold oatmeal or granola situation. Pancakes, French toast, creamy hot cereal and grits, eggs and bacon. Meals of dreams I’m telling you.
I’ve taken your standard custardy bread and created a fun, bite-sized meal everyone will go for. These oven baked French toast fondue sticks are fun for the family or a brunch buffet.
I love that no one is standing over the stove, flipping slice after slice of toast. The cubed bread gets baked in the oven and is ready to eat in minutes.
A quick apricot dipping sauce makes this dish super special. The little bites are great with syrup too, and lots of fun toppings. Serve them with bowls of coconut and nuts for dipping, and diced fruit for threading on the skewers with each bite. I serve the French toast bites with bamboo skewers as the fondue sticks.
My hack for making these oven baked French toast fondue bites easy, is to cook them all at once instead of slaving over the stove!
This would of course make a great dish for a baby shower or open house. The French toast is delicious served hot, but can be a room temperature on a buffet as well. Just double, or even triple the recipe for a crowd.
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 cup whole milk
- 3 large eggs
- 4 tbsp unsalted butter melted
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- 8 1- inch-thick slices soft French bread cut into 1-inch cubes
- ½ cup apricot jam
- 2 tbsp orange juice
Heat oven to 375°F. In a bowl, whisk together sugar, milk, eggs, 3 tbsp butter and cinnamon. Gently toss bread in mixture until coated well.
Spread remaining butter on a rimmed, nonstick baking sheet. Add bread cubes in a single layer and bake 12 to 15 min. Use a spatula to remove baked cubes from pan and serve immediately with dipping sauce and toppings.
To make apricot dipping sauce, combine jam and orange juice and microwave 1 min; stir to smooth.
