Grill your breakfast: French Toast Kebabs

Turn French toast into food-on-a-stick.

Soak 12 wooden skewers (10 to 12 in.) in water for 20 minutes; drain. Cut day-old pain au levain into 1-in. chunks, including some crust on each, to make 2 qts. In a large bowl, whisk 3/4 cup whole milk, 4 large eggs, and 1 tsp. vanilla extract to blend. Mix in bread to coat; thread onto skewers. Grill, covered, on a well-oiled cooking grate over medium heat (about 350°) until browned, turning once, 3 to 4 minutes. Serve with maple or berry syrup and melted butter and dust with powdered sugar if you like. Serves 4

Tricks for great French toast:

  • Use day-old bread
  • Each cube should have some crust
  • Soak the skewers
