Mornings can be so crazy around here. With a five year old who is determined to do so much “by herself” (but who gets distracted sooooo easily) it never fails that no matter how early we get up, we still end up rushing near the end to just get out the door and mornings feel frantic. Do you experience this too? Sitting down to eat breakfast at the table is reserved for weekends, but during the week I’m all about grab-and-go. But I’m still on a mission to try to make even our weekday mornings meaningful. It’s why I got excited when Farm Rich reached out to me about sharing their new line of wholesome breakfast foods. This fall, Farm Rich rolled out an entirely new premium line of delicious baked breakfast and snack items – Farm Rich Bakery – and I knew this would be another go-to staple for us. French toast is a treat I love to make on weekends but would never consider for our busy mornings, but now with their new French Toast Sticks, we can have our cake (or toast!) and eat it too!
You know me though, I always want to find a way to put my own twist on things – make it special but still EASY. The french toast sticks are delicious on their own and they are packed with protein which is a major plus, but since everything is cuter in a mason jar, I couldn’t resist dressing these little guys up a bit. So I grabbed my french toast sticks, a couple of jars, some delicious fresh fruit, and some whipped cream and less than 5 minutes later (no kidding)…
…we had this! Wholesome, delicious, and adorable! Doesn’t that site just make you want to smile? When I first handed this to my daughter she was so delighted and we had that happy moment of peace and connection – two things which certainly help our mornings get off on a happier foot.
All I did was pop the frozen french toast sticks in the toaster oven, then, once they were done (which took about 3-4 minutes) place them in a jar. Next, spoon a few berries into the jar, layer in a bit of fresh whipped cream, and top with a few more berries.
And voila! A handy, yummy breakfast-on-the-go that feels extra special but literally took 5 minutes to prepare. Yay!! We love the crunchy, cinnamon flavor that these guys have from the toaster, it really tastes bakery fresh.
Sometimes we dip them, other times we use a fork, it just depends on our mood, but no matter how we do it, they go down a treat! I can’t tell you how much I like having handy breakfast helpers like these on hand on these busy mornings – which seem to only get busier this time of year.
Available in select grocery stores nationwide, the new “bake-shop” line includes these premium French Toast Sticks plus, Donut Holes in both Cinnamon Sugar and Chocolate varieties, Blueberry Scones, and savory Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Pull Aparts. We have tried the french toast and donut holes – yum! – and are on the search for the scones and the pull aparts. We’re really anxious to try those too!
Have friends and family visiting soon? This also makes a great holiday breakfast item (or any time of day when you are craving a delicious and adorable snack!) if you are entertaining a house full of guests and don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen. These come together so quickly and easily but look fancy and fun – a wonderful hostess helper this holiday season!
