Cinnamon French Toast Sticks

French toast sticks have been a hit around our house for quite some time, but when my sister posted about this cinnamon version, I just knew we had to give it a try. I tweaked it a little using my favorite french toast sticks recipe, but the addition of the crusted cinnamon and sugar coating just made these to die for! And just when I thought they couldn't get any tastier...

8 slices Texas Toast (or 1 loaf bakery or homemade bread, sliced thick)
5 eggs
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 Tbs vanilla extract
3 Tbs brown sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
butter, for frying
maple syrup for dipping

1 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Cut bread slices into 1 inch thick strips. Preheat large griddle or non-stick skillet. Mix 1 cup sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon in bowl, set aside for coating. In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, cream, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and whisk until combined. Butter the griddle or skillet. Dip one slice of bread at a time into the egg mixture, flipping over once to coat the other side. Place on hot griddle. Cook on each side until golden brown. Remove from griddle and coat in cinnamon sugar mixture. Repeat with all slices of bread until coating mixture is gone. Add more butter to griddle or skillet as needed. Serve immediately with maple syrup.
