French Toast Skewers Recipe

Have you ever wanted to serve yummy, oh-so-messy french toast at a brunch, but opted for easy to eat finger foods instead? This french toast skewers recipe is perfect for your next morning get together when you want to keep it clean, yet delicious! The fruit paired so well with the french toast and the blueberry sauce may have forever changed the way I eat french toast! This one is a “must try”. Apparently I’m going through a food on a stick phase lol {see my chocolate covered banana pops}.

To save on time, I cheated just a bit on the blueberry sauce. I took the smaller blueberries that wouldn’t skewer well, microwaved them for 30 seconds, smashed them with a fork, and mixed them with Smuckers blueberry syrup. Delicious!!! I also used my homemade vanilla which was amazing! It’s time to start making a couple more batches for the holidays!

French Toast & Fruit Skewers

Yield: Serves 4

French Toast & Fruit Skewers

Ingredients

  • 8 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup 1% buttermilk
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 loaf (one-pound) unsliced dense white bread (I used French bread), crusts removed and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 pint fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 pint fresh raspberries
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon confectioner's sugar
  • Blueberry sauce (or warmed, smashed blueberries mixed with blueberry syrup)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place a rimmed baking sheet in the oven to warm. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, salt, and vanilla. Stir in bread.
  2. In a large saute pan set over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Place half of the bread mixture in pan; cook, turning occasionally with tongs, until browned on all sides. To keep warm, transfer to the oven. Cook remaining bread in the remaining 2 tablespoons butter as before.
  3. Thread bread cubes onto skewers alternating with blueberries, raspberries, and banana slices. Dust skewers lightly with confectioner's sugar. Serve drizzled with blueberry syrup.
