French Toast & Fruit Kabobs made with Leftover Banana Bread
French Toast Kabobs made from leftover banana bread. Cut into bite size, and then skewer with pieces of fruit. Turns an ordinary breakfast into a special meal.
Easy French Toast Kabobs
You may remember my Banana Bread French Toast Bites that I shared about six months ago.
I used my leftover bread to make a whole new meal, french toast bites!
Yummy pieces of banana bread dipped in an egg batter, then lightly pan-fried!
What Type of Bread Should Be Used For Kabobs?
Banana bread is a fantastic choice as well as pumpkin apple bread or egg nog bread.
Basically, any dense bread can be used. Even store bought!
Just be sure that the type you decide to use isn’t so soft because the French toast kabobs may fall apart when dipped in the egg batter before pan frying.
What Are The Best Fruits For French Toast Kabobs?
I used black berries, strawberries and banana slices. Any seasonal fresh fruit can be used.
Consider the following:
Serving a whole meal right from a little stick, brilliant don’t you think?!
Skewers are such a fun way to serve food, and for some reason everyone likes to stab their food with skewers.
Don’t be surprised if you get some helpers eager to make these French toast kabobs.
If you made the Coconut Banana Bread I shared with you last week and happen to have a little left, these kabobs can be put together quickly!
Fully assembled, these would be a great for brunch or any special occasion, like heart day (thump, thump), which is just around the corner, you know!
I dusted the French toast kabobs with powdered sugar, and served them with homemade maple syrup.
Melted chocolate or a yogurt based dip would also be delicious.
