French Toast Strips Recipe

Ever since my success with the Kale, Avocado and Cheese Omelette Strips, I’ve been all about the strip/finger food format for my toddler. Olivia can feed herself, which she prefers, and these make no mess – which is great because her favorite thing to do lately is fling her food off of her highchair tray while happily yelling “all gone!” So, here I go again, with another simple breakfast recipe. Admittedly, I had NEVER (gasp!) made french toast prior to this, so I was really excited when I discovered how easy it was to cook it in strips. You guys are probably way ahead of me, but in case you haven’t already done this, here’s the recipe:
