Well Christmas morning breakfast is certainly not the morning for ‘plain old cereal’. But what about cereal crusted french toast. Now that sounds amazing! And fun! And unique!
I first saw this idea in the Rachael Ray magazine. I then saw it on one of my favorite food blogs Lick the Bowl Good. The concept was the same: a basic french toast but after dipping the bread in the egg mixture you dip the bread in the crushed cereal and cook as normal. The cereal adds a nice crunch and flavor. Rachael Ray used granola in her version and Monica (from Lick The Bowl Good) used Cap’n Crunch. But the possibilities are endless. A chocolate lover? Use Cocoa Puffs. Love cinnamon toast for breakfast make Cinnamon Toast Crunch french toast. Use what cereal you love and what you have on hand. Anything will work! Just have fun with it, kids will love this too.
Cereal French Toast
Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Serves 4
3 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups cereal of your choice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Eight 1-inch-thick slices of bread

In a medium saucepan, over medium-low heat, combine sliced strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Let strawberries cook for 15 to 20 minutes, breaking up/mashing the strawberries with a wooden spoon as they cook. Serve over pancakes, waffles, french toast, or even ice cream! : )
