Inspired by a recipe I saw on television, I experimented with different combinations and came up with this. This is a delicious and unusual variation on plain old French Toast. Try it, I guarantee you'll love it! Thanks to the Blue Moon Cafe in Baltimore for the inspiration. Not for the diet conscious, but it tastes so good you won't care! Put bread in a warm oven to keep heated until the rest of the bread is done, if needed. Serve with a dollop of butter and warmed pure maple syrup, if desired.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Beat the eggs and sugar in a bowl until smooth. Pour in the cream, milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg; whisk until smooth. Pour the crushed cereal into a shallow dish; set aside. Dip the egg bread into the egg mixture two pieces at a time until the egg has been soaked into the center of the slices, about 30 seconds per side. Press the soaked bread into the crushed cereal until coated on both sides. Set the finished slices aside on a piece of waxed paper.

  • Melt the butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the French toast in the hot pan until golden on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.

We offered this on our Saturday Breakfast menu at our restaurant. It got great reviews from staff and customers alike....decadent! Oh my! One family asked for the recipe so I referred them to allrecipes.com! Others offered suggestions of various other sugar fix cereals to try including ones with berries or peanut butter Captain Crunch. Paired with a good bacon it's a winner!

This was a great use of our leftover challah from Shabbat but I did make some changes so it would be healthier. I only used 2 eggs omitted the heavy cream used 3/4 cup of soymilk instead of 1/2 cup 2% milk used vegetable oil instead of butter and Life cereal instead of Cap'n Crunch (far less than the 1/2 package suggested by the recipe). Also maybe it's just my stove but I partiallly burned the first slice at 3 minutes on medium-high heat. I cooked the rest of them for 1 minute on medium heat and they cooked perfectly. With these changes it was great! My family loved it. I will probably make again next time we need to use up some challah.
