Cereal Encrusted French Toast
2 cups lightly sugared cereal, crushed (I love Honey Bunches of Oats® with Cinnamon Clusters)
3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter
Cinnamon for sprinkling
Heat electric skillet to 350º F. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk and eggs; set aside. Place crushed cereal in a medium bowl; set aside. Melt butter in the skillet. Dip each piece of bread in the egg mixture and then into the cereal. Place on skillet and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook 2-4 minutes or until golden brown and flip. Sprinkle with cinnamon again and cook for an additional 2-4 minutes. Serve immediately with maple syrup.
Yield: 9 pieces of French toast
*My sister-in-law told me about a bread crumb encrusted French toast she had once that was amazing. It sounded intriguing. Although, I felt like additional sugar was needed! This is my version. Enjoy. Have fun exploring different flavors of cereal!
