French Toast Balls



Happy Christmas Eve Eve. We are only two days away & it has been a busy & exciting holiday so far. I am thrilled that we have the next few days off together as a family because it is so rare. Yesterday, there was a party for the kids at a Polish club from my husband’s home town. Mai saw Santa for the third time this season.                                                       She was still not impressed.


With all of the excitement from yesterday, Mai hardly ate a thing. As you all already know if you tune in with me often, she is not the best eater. This morning I wanted to ensure that she had a good breakfast before we headed out for some last minute Christmas shopping. There is one thing that I know about my toddler, she loves to eat anything bite sized. She is a snacker. It is not the same if I cut in to small pieces. It has to be a bite sized morsel on it’s own. She knows the difference.

One of my favorite breakfast foods is French toast. My daughter likes it too…sometimes. It depends on her mood. This morning we had an idea to form our French toast into little balls. Our hopes were that it would make her breakfast more appetizing. Will it work?

French Toast Balls

Wheat bread



Powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375.


Beat eggs slightly.


Remove crusts from bread & cut into quarters.


Roll into a bite sized ball with your fingers.


Place balls into beaten egg. Let sit for a couple of minutes to absorb the egg. Scoop the balls out.


Dip into a mixture of cinnamon & powdered sugar.


Place on a greased cooking tray & bake until golden brown & slightly crispy on the outside.


Watch your munchkin enjoy.

She loved helping mommy make them & she loved eating them too. I even got a “Mmmmmmm” out of her this morning. Try our quick and easy trick for your finicky toddler.

Try it with cinnamon raisin bread too.

    I absolutely love this idea! My son is also a picky eater and loves bite-sized snacks. Like your daughter, he’s a true snacker! I’ll definitely be trying this!

    Thanks so much for sharing on Turn It Up Tuesday! We love having you! 🙂

  14. This is a great idea. One thing I learned is that children love things that fit in their hand, whether it’s a toy or food. When my grandson was born I realized whenever I gave him something small he loved it and held on to it so if it’s food then it’s definitely a winner.
