French Toast & Maple Syrup Shooters - Brunch party appetizer recipe

We wanted our brunch party full of brunchy bites, edible tidbits that could (for the most part) be eaten without a fork or other utensils. But when I decided wanted to serve French toast, it proved to be a bit of a bite-sized dilemma.

The solution came to me from above (actually, just Pinterest) where I saw bite-sized sticks of French toast served in shot glasses of maple syrup.

Brilliant and perfect.

I added some bourbon to my favorite basic French toast recipe, which seemed more than appropriate seeing as I was serving it in shot glasses.

My motto? Where a vanilla is good, bourbon is better.

I used these slanted cylinder cups (since I didn’t exactly have 20+ shot glasses on hand and wouldn’t have wanted to wash them even if I did), but small jars or dixie cups would work here too.
