Cereal Crusted French Toast
 
 
Serves: 3
Ingredients
  • 3 cups HONEY BUNCHES OF OATS HONEY ROASTED CEREAL
  • 3 EGGS
  • ½ cup HALF & HALF
  • ½ teaspoon VANILLA EXTRACT
  • 6 slices THICK BREAD, such as Texas Toast
  • BUTTER, MAPLE SYRUP & SLICED STRAWBERRIES for serving
Instructions
  1. Place cereal in a pie plate or other shallow dish, lightly crush cereal with the bottom of a measuring cup until you have medium crumbs.
  2. In a different shallow dish, beat together eggs, half & half and vanilla extract.
  3. Heat a griddle* to 350 degrees or a skillet over medium heat.
  4. Dip one slice of bread into egg mixture and then into cereal, making sure both sides are evenly covered with crumbs. Place on preheated griddle and repeat with remaining bread.
  5. Cook until golden on the first side, flip and cook on 2nd side.
  6. Serve immediately with butter, syrup and sliced strawberries.
Notes
*If you have a griddle, I recommend using it to cook all the french toast at once. You have to give them time to cook all the way through without burning the cereal on the outside. You can do this on the griddle without rushing things and you'll have golden french toast perfection.

*Multiply recipe as needed.
