French Toast Nuggets

Balemtime’s Bay!


Yeah, I’m that obnoxious d-bucket who says Balemtime instead of Valentine. I know. I’m actually getting mad just typing it out.

What’s even worse is if you heard me say it. It’s not a regular voice. Oh gosh no. It’s a high-pitched squeak that sounds somewhere between a dolphin and a drunk muppet.

This might be why all my human friends move away.

What’s even WORSE is that I’m calling this meal a nugget, when it’s clearly not a nugget. But it is. Isn’t?

Who cares. We’re eating Balemtime’s Nuggets, dangit!

If you can find a super skinny French baguette, like the one above, then hayell yayess. I know French baguettes are already pretty skinny, but this one is extra skinny. It’s wearing skinny jeans with zippers at the heels.

PEE ESS: I just put on jeans for the first time today in over six months! And what do you know, they happen to be skinny jeans with zippers at the heels. Sure, they’re high-waisted like true mom jeans. Hey man, if the shoe (jean?) fits. . .


And you’re bored.

Okay, make this for your lovah this weekend. Or tonight for dinner! Or tomorrow morning for breakfast. Or tomorrow night for dinner! But make sure you call it nuggets to be sure you rightly annoy the tar out of your man.


You know you like it.

French Toast Nuggets:

What it took for 4:

* 1 skinny French baguette, sliced into 1-inch pieces
* 5 eggs
* 3 Tbs. brown sugar
* 1 Tbs. cinnamon
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* 1 cup milk
* oil for frying (or butter!)

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract and milk.

Pour the mix into a shallow dish and place the bread nuggets in it. Toss to coat. Let sit for 15 minutes, so that the nuggets get good and soaked. Plus I just like saying nuggets.

Heat the oil in a large skillet. Place a few nuggets at a time in the skillet and fry on both sides until golden brown. Continue with remaining nuggets. Are you sick of me saying nuggets?

Serve with real maple syrup, fresh blueberries and a dusting of powdered sugar.

Nuggets. Sorry.


Let’s eat this all the time.

      I’m lying in bed on a Saturday morning reading this post and laughing out loud. The nuggets look amazing, but even if they didn’t, I would try them because you made me laugh. And because my childhood nickname was Nugget.

    one valentine's day in my advanced math class, this guy from the track team and his brother walked in and start singing a happy "Balemtimes" day song and they left a box of heart chocolates on my desk when they left. And I still remember wanting to shout after them... "VALENTINE'S!! NO M's NO B's!!!" But at the same time, it was the first time I'd received a special valentine's gift from a boy.... conflicted emotions.

      I wonder if these would work in muffin pans so you don't have to "fry" them and could make multiples at a a time? Anyone tried it?
  33. Ann G Rasmus March 14, 2014 at 6:12 am #
    Love. Not to much nuggets. Love. Just love. ;)

    I am totally making these this weekend! Thanks so much for sharing.
  36. Shanice April 15, 2018 at 1:45 pm #
    Super yummy and very filling, I wish that I had let the toast soak because the inside didn't absorb the taste as much as the outside, next time ill be sure to let it soak for 15 mins! thanks for the recipe!

    Hi! I just tried making these and found that the middle just couldn’t cook - even after 20 minutes on low heat so that the edges wouldn’t burn. Tips?
