Cinnamon Crunch French Toast

(3 servings)

  • 6 slices white or wheat bread
  • 1 and 1/2 cups Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal - lightly crushed
  • 3 large eggs - beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 dash salt
There's no need to pulverize or the cereal or pulse it in a food processor. Just crush it so the pieces are quite small and fairly even in size. I put the cereal in a plastic baggie and crush it with a rolling pin.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a shallow dish, stir together the milk, beaten egg, cinnamon and salt.

Spread the crushed cereal over a plate.

Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture so both sides are fully coated. Then drag each slice (both sides) through the crunched cereal.

Place ready-to-go slices on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes unto golden brown.

Serve warm with a pat of butter and maple syrup. I also like it with butter and sprinkled with a 50/50 mix of sugar and cinnamon.

You can also use regular corn flakes or similar cereal. Just increase the cinnamon by a 1/4 teaspoon. Enjoy!
