I know what you’re thinking, if you want one serving of french toast, just make a single slice.
Yeah, I know, but…..
Recently I found myself craving french toast and had only a lonely hamburger bun in my bread box.
The Hubs was making some ham cups so I thought, maybe I can make this lonesome bun into a french toast cup.
Turns out, this was kind of a genius idea. It not only works with hamburger buns, but also with bread heels, leftover croissants…..pretty much any random bread odd or end you might have.
Just tear ’em up, stuff ’em in a muffin tin and bake!
Even better, make a mixed tray of half french toast cups and half ham cups.
Are you a meal prepper? These are easy to make ahead and freeze. Just re-heat in the microwave wrapped loosely in a paper towel for 30 seconds before serving.
French toast cups are a great way to enjoy breakfast on the go, especially when you’re craving something comforting.
They are also super kid friendly. An easy recipe for kids to help make, and even easier to throw together on busy mornings.
