  • 1
    Put cereal in a bag and smash it with a rolling pin. It doesn't need to be dust, but it should be pretty fine. Some small pieces are good though.
  • 2
    In a wide dish whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.
  • 3
    Heat butter on a large griddle or in a pan over medium heat.
  • 4
    Working with 2-4 pieces of bread at a time (depending on the size of your pan), dip each piece of bread in the egg mixture. Then transfer to the cereal coating and coat both sides.
  • 5
    Add toast to hot pan to cook for about 3-4 minutes per side. Watch the toast carefully as it cooks. If it gets too hot the cereal will burn. Flip the toast occasionally and make sure it doesn't burn.
  • 6
    When toast are caramelized and brown and cooked through, remove them to a platter and finish other toast in the same way.
  • 7
    Serve French toast with butter, maple syrup, and powdered sugar!

More About This Recipe
  • One of my favorite breakfasts in the world is French toast. One of my least favorite breakfasts in the world is soggy, thin French toast. Even if I use thick, crusty bread, I sometimes want more texture to my French toast and luckily there’s an easy way to add in some crunch. My Frosted Crunch French toast is basically a standard French toast that’s been dredged and covered in smashed Frosted Toast Crunch cereal. It has plenty of crunch! The bread that you choose for French toast is always important. Try not to use a flimsy, thin piece of bread. It will just fall apart. I like to use a thick piece of Texas toast or even a slightly stale loaf of bread from a bakery works well. The thicker and firmer the better so it can really absorb the custard mixture. You can serve these up right away or lay them out on a platter for people to help themselves! My favorite way to serve them is with a dollop of butter and some real maple syrup. The French toast is pretty sweet so I also like to serve it with a bowl of fruit to cut some of the sweetness. This is a really fun way to use up extra cereal in the bag; you could also use Cinnamon Toast Crunch just as easily.
