Last year my husband and I took our kids to South Carolina for vacation. To make a long story short, on our way there we got stuck in Dallas, Texas. Our flight was cancelled and we had to stay overnight in Dallas. Luckily for us we had the opportunity to eat at the cutest little breakfast joint not far from the airport. We quickly found that they were famous for their variety of different types of french toast. Our cute waitress told us her very favorite was the Cowboy Crunch flavor which happened to be french toast dipped in crushed up Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal.
I took one bite and was hooked. It was the best french toast I had ever tasted in my life. It was sweet but not too sweet, it was crunchy, it was cinnamon-y, it was flat out delicious. I knew how easy this recipe would be to create at home so that’s exactly what I did. My son now asks for special french toast nearly every morning, its that good! It doesn’t hurt that this recipe is super easy. Next time you’re in the mood for french toast, try this version instead of the boring old regular version, you will be hooked too!
Tips & Tricks:
- The key to not ruining this french toast is keeping the temperature low. Because of the high sugar content in the cereal, you can very easily burn this french toast. It is best to keep your pan on low while cooking this french toast. It takes a little extra time to get done, but its worth it not to have burnt cereal on your french toast.
- I like to crush up a whole bunch of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and store it in a gallon sized Ziploc bag so that when I want to make this french toast again, I don’t have to go through the process of crushing up more cereal every time.
- You can experiment using all types of different cereal with this recipe. We have tried it with Captain Crunch & Frosted Flakes. Both of which were great but my favorite is hands down Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
