Made it several times. I also use Rice Krispies sometimes for a different kind of crispy. They are equally enjoyable.

Just made it with cinnamon swirl bread and crushed Honey Bunches of Oats. Did half the recipe for 2 people. Very happy with results. - Nat(alie)

This is the only way I make French Toast anymore. Use regular corn flakes. Frosted Flakes sound fun, but they make it too sweet. This is an awesome recipe.

I used 3/4 cup of milk and it turned out great! I will definitely be cooking this again.

Waaaaay too much milk. And it was hard to get the corn flakes to stick. Good taste though.

Love it. Not really crunchy. But a great texture. I did use a 1/2 cup less milk as mentioned in comments. Turned out great.

I use whole wheat, multi-grain bread with sunflower seeds in it, and coated with Special K. For a lower-cal version, I omitted the butter and syrup and instead used extra virgin olive oil to cook, and topped with fresh strawberries and blueberries instead of syrup. Amazing!!!

A really good recipe but it got a bit sickly after a while.
