Notes

Substitutions

There are several substitutions that you can make in this recipe.
  • Bread: substitute gluten free bread for regular bread
  • Milk: Exchange regular milk for dairy free milk...you can even use vanilla or plain creamer!
  • Sugar: Feel free to use brown sugar, granulated sugar or sugar alternatives here!

Cooking

There are several cooking methods you can use. We recommend using an air fryer, oven, or frying pan method.

Air Fryer

You can arrange the french toast bites in a single layer in a lightly greased air fryer. Then set the temperature to 350 degrees and air fry for 7-10 minutes, flipping half way through cooking time.

Oven

Arrange a piece of parchment paper or lightly grease a large baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Arrange the french toast bites in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake the bites for 10-15 minutes, flipping halfway through baking time.

Pan Frying

You can also pan fry your french toast bites. Lightly grease a 10-12 inch frying pan. Heat the pan on medium heat. Add the french toast bites in a single layer to the pan. Cook for several minutes each side, or until the egg is cooked and set thoroughly and the outside of the french toast bites are lightly browned.

Storing

  • Refrigerator: French toast bites can be stored in an airtight container for 2-3 days in the fridge.
  • Freezer: Store cooked and cooled french toast bites in an airtight freezer bag for up to two weeks in the refrigerator.

Reheating

If you have frozen your french toast bites, let them thaw at room temperature. To reheat from the fridge or freezer, use one of the following directions below:
  • Pan: Heat lightly greased frying pan to medium heat. Heat french toast bites for a minute or two each side until heated through.
  • Oven: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange french toast bites on a baking sheet. Heat for 2-3 minutes each side.
  • Air fryer: Arrange french toast bites in a single layer in the air fryer. Heat at 350 degrees for 2-3 minutes.
