Make school day breakfast your way

Our French toast stars are super tasty and one of our favourite fun breakfast ideas just as they are.

But you can mix things up differently – try….

  • Add more fibre! – for ramping up the fibre content and choose a wholegrain or seeded bread
  • Swap the dip! – serve with BBQ dip or drizzled in maple syrup
  • Make gluten free eggy bread – use gluten free bread and be sure the dip is gluten free too

How to serve French bread stars

  • Perfect for school day breakfast – add a glass of smoothie or fresh juice. 
  • I tend to add a healthy smoothie like our delicious spinach and kiwi smoothie with banana and yogurt.
