Cereal Encrusted French Toast

9 slices of bread
2 cups lightly sugared cereal, crushed (I love Honey Bunches of Oats® with Cinnamon Clusters)

2 eggs
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!
