Crunchy Cinnamon French Toast Sticks

Crunchy Cinnamon French Toast Sticks

(2 servings)    Printable Version
  • 4 slices of white bread
  • 3 eggs or 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup corn flakes cereal - crushed to make about 3/4 cup
  • 1 Tablespoon butter - for frying
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • powered sugar - for dusting
  • maple syrup - warmed
Heat a griddle or large fry pan to medium-high heat (about 325 degrees if using an electric griddle).

Cut each slice of bread into 3 strips.

Place the crushed corn flakes in a large shallow bowl.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.

Grease the griddle or fry pan with butter.

One at a time, drag each strip of bread through the egg mixture - coating comletely. Then drag the individual strips through the crushed corn flakes, so that a scattered amount of corn flakes sticks to both flat sides of the bread.

Carefully transfer the sticks to the fry pan or griddle. Cook both sides until nicely browned (2 to 3 minutes per side). The second side always browns a little faster than the first.

Transfer french toasts sticks to a paper towel lined plate. Allow sticks to cool until safe to the touch. Dust top side with powdered sugar.

To serve, arrange 6 French toast sticks on a plate around a small dish of warm maple syrup. All that's left is to dip in and have a great breakfast.

For the breakfast experimentalist, try replacing the crushed corn flakes with other crushed breakfast cereals... Froot Loops, Cocoa Krispies, you name it. Just ease back on the cinnamon and vanilla if the cereal you choose is already bursting with flavor.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.

Not really that crunchy, but the flavor was really good. It could have used a couple teaspoons of sugar in the egg mixture.

Instead of just corn flakes, it is so much better and tastier if you crush Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal and use that to dredge your French toast in before cooking. Also great to sprinkle on top after cooking for extra cinnamon and crunch and a pretty garnish! It is addictive and super yummy!!
