  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and the nutmeg. Stir in cider and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute; remove from heat. Stir in butter; keep warm.
  • 2
    Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 375°F. Grease griddle with cooking spray, vegetable oil or shortening. (Surface is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on it dance and disappear.)
  • 3
    In shallow bowl, beat all French toast stick ingredients except bread with fork until smooth. Dip bread sticks into batter; drain excess batter back into bowl.
  • 4
    Place bread sticks on griddle. Cook about 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with warm syrup.

Expert Tips

  • Go ahead and try wheat bread for a different taste treat.
  • If you don't like squeezing lemons, keep bottled lemon juice on hand, available in the produce, grocery or frozen section at your market.
  • No time to make the syrup? Serve the toast sticks with maple- or fruit-flavored syrup instead.
