French Toast Sticks and Fruit Kebabs

Hey everyone, Jennie from Garlic, My Soul here! This recipe is all about the kiddos. When coming up with a concept for the Hotel Del Sol, I was drawn to the vibrant colors and playful nature of this hotel. The 1950s style architecture has a level of nostalgia for simpler times with more fun and leisure, and that’s exactly what I thought of as a created these French Toast Sticks. This breakfast is just plain fun to eat – plus, you get to use your hands, and I can’t think of something more amusing than that. Served with colorful fruit kebabs (for nutritional balance, of course), this colorful breakfast is exactly the kind of meal you want on a vacation at a fun-filled retro hotel.

  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp butter
