I made the first “brunch on a stick” and then my niece/nephews made the rest. Everyone refilled their own skewer. Several times. My job was just to keep the french toast coming.
By the end there may or may not have been skewer fights, but we won’t show you that.

French toast technique:
My brother in law makes the world’s best french toast. It is definitely dessert for breakfast. I’ve adapted some of his techniques, but I don’t have the french toast magic hands that he does.
I used 3 types of bread throughout the weekend: french bread, raisin bread, and bagels. I cut them into large bite sized pieces and toss them in a bowl with eggs, milk, splash of a vanilla, cinnamon, pinch of salt, and a spoonful of sugar (my brother-in-laws secret weapon). Heat butter in the pan. Add pieces of bread. Add butter as needed.
