Cinnamon Toast Bites / Houston, TX
Team JEGS chef Nicky Morse -- brings his unique recipes to NHRA fans each race with a new installment of "Quarter-mile Cuisine." Morse takes readers step-by-step through many of his award-winning recipes, the same ones he's prepared for countless racers, movie stars, musicians, athletes, fellow celebrity chefs, and government dignitaries over his career. From the knee of his Italian grandmother, to exhaustive training at Ohio's top French restaurant, to stints as a culinary instructor at Ohio State University, Morse's knowledge of cooking is as varied as the recipes he offers.
I have 3 brothers, 2 sisters, 6 nieces, 5 nephews, 2 great nieces, and 1 great nephew (at this point- you never know when the count is going up). So, over the years I have learned what kids like to eat. Cinnamon toast is always a hit. If you are having cinnamon toast, it seems like there is just never enough bread in the house. Mom will start baking bread days before we need it if everyone is coming home, just so we have enough for all the meals.
I have decided to make a recipe that is easy and fun for kids (and Adults) to eat. You can make a whole basket of these in no time. They can stand alone, or they are a great addition to breakfast.
Cinnamon Toast Bites
6 Inches Baguette (Cut into 1 inch cubes)
2.5 Tablespoons Butter (Melted)
1.5 Teaspoons Cinnamon
¼ Cup Sugar
- Toast the bread on an oven pan under the broiler. (Make sure to turn the bread so that it all get evenly toasted)
- Put the toast in a stainless steel bowl.
- Drizzle the melted butter over the toast, while gently stirring.
- Mix the cinnamon and sugar together and add to the bowl all at once.
- Gently stir until the toast is evenly coated
