Ingredients You’ll Need to Make French Toast Sticks
BREAD: Thick-sliced bread is the way to go for these french toast sticks. I love using brioche, but any type of bread will work.
CUSTARD: French toast custard is a simple combination of milk, eggs, and vanilla. Just be sure to dip the bread sticks briefly. That way you won’t run out of custard before you get through dipping all the bread.
SPICES: I love adding ground cinnamon to french toast custard. Sometimes I even add in a little ground nutmeg too! If it’s fall, I’ll switch out for 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice and add a 1/4 of pumpkin puree to the custard too.

STEP 3 In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, powdered sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.
STEP 4 Dip the bread sticks into the custard briefly and place them into the air fryer basket. Only dip as many sticks as will fit without touching. You’ll need to work in batches.
