The Best French Toast You’ll Ever Eat: Churro French Toast Sticks

When you’re craving both churros and french toast, only churro french toast sticks will do.
Posted August 3, 2019 by Stephanie

Gosh darn it, I love French toast. The crisp caramelized exterior, the eggy soft custard bread-y insides. The toppings. The icing sugar. The syrup. EVERYTHING about French toast makes me insanely happy. I feel like maybe I could start a French toast restaurant? Like IHOP but for French toast? International House of French Toast? IHOFT? Would you hit it up? I would do sweet and savory French toasts and I would make sure if you wanted you could order a progression of French toasts so you could start with a little appetizer style one, then move on to a savory, then have a dessert one. We could do sizes too so you could just get one slice if you want to have more varieties. GAH. It would be SO GLORIOUS.

If I ever did have a French toast restaurant, you better believe that these churro French toast sticks with dark chocolate ganache dipping sauce would be on the menu. French toast sticks just taste better than regular French toast, am I right? I think it’s the sheer fact that you can dip pick them up with your fingers and dip them.

I came up with these churro French toast sticks because I had a major churro craving and did not want to whip up a bunch of choux and deep fry it. I was fiending for cinnamon and sugar and saw a old-ish loaf of bread and it all came together for me in one of those genius hungry at 10 in the evening moments: churro French toast sticks. Sticks because they are kinda of sort of churro shaped and French toast because when is French toast never a good idea?

These guys hit the spot, especially dipped into a decadent dark chocolate ganache. It kind of reminded me of churros in Spain! I love how they make churros there: in a giant vat of oil all curled up into a spiral of deep fried deliciousness. They don’t really do the cinnamon sugar thing, but they do have a thick chocolate dipping sauce. I guess I ended up with the best of both worlds because I did the Mexican cinnamon sugar churro with the Spanish chocolate dipping sauce. Seriously the best breakfast you could have, even if you eat it at night like I did.

PS – In case you too are a French toast fanatic, here are some other French toasts to check out: creme brûlée French toast, HK style nutella stuffed French toast, cheesy French toast, raspberry coconut tres leches French toast, bananas foster French toast, spicy savory French toast, crispy salty peppery French toast, lemon meringue French toast, fried chicken and French toast waffles, nutella pumpkin French toast, and bourbon peach French toast.
