Classic Breakfast Sides
French toast sticks are a classic breakfast food that everyone loves. They are easy to make and can be served with various toppings.
Our favorite way to make this classic breakfast side dish is to use Texas Toast. Texas Toast is thicker and heartier than regular bread, so it soaks up the egg mixture better. Just a hint – if you don’t want to make French Toast sticks, don’t cut them into sticks.
Keep the French toast whole, and you can enjoy this dish as classic French toast too.
Hash Brown Casserole is the perfect side dish for any morning meal. It can be made ahead of time, so you don’t have to worry about waking up early to make breakfast.
The hash brown casserole is packed full of shredded hash browns, cheddar cheese, and a creamy sauce (not canned soup) that will even please picky eaters. Just pop it in the oven and enjoy a hot, delicious breakfast that will start your day off right.
