Berry French Toast Kabobs
These Berry French Toast Kabobs are gorgeous on a platter and make a super convenient pick-up and go finger food. Perfect for a brunch buffet!
Servings: 12 to 14 kabobs
- 1 pound loaf French bread
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 pounds assorted berries and/or other fruit
- powdered sugar for sprinkling
- maple syrup
- 12 to 14 wooden skewers (12-inch)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Generously coat two large rimmed baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray.
Use a serrated bread knife to trim the crust from the loaf of French bread. Slice trimmed bread into 1-inch slices and then cut each slice into cubes.
In a shallow plate (a pie plate works well), whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla extract. Dip the bread cubes into the egg mixture, turning to coat all sides well. Allow excess egg mixture to drip off and then transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining bread cubes, leaving a little space between each one, and spreading between the two baking sheets. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes, until bread cubes have browned nicely on bottom side. Remove the baking sheets from the oven and lightly coat the tops of the bread cubes with a little non-stick cooking spray. Use a spatula to flip each bread cube over and return to oven for an additional 5 to 7 minutes or until well toasted and golden brown on both sides. Remove from oven.
Assemble your kabobs by alternating pieces of French toast with assorted berries. I used 4 cubes of French toast per skewer and spaced them apart with blueberries, raspberries, and sliced strawberries. You could also use blackberries and banana chunks or any other fruit you like.
Sprinkle assembled kabobs with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup for dipping.
