Crunchy Cinnamon French Toast

Hello Friends!

How was your weekend? Good?  I hope so.

Mine was pretty nice. We visited my mom and then,my in-laws. My kids are always excited to see their grandparents. My mom always has cookies or cupcakes, my mother in law always has Cheetos and giant pretzel rods.

It’s pure childhood bliss for their entire day. 🙂

Ok, now, let’s get to the  food!


French toast. Talk about bliss.

This is real so easy, it’s nearly crazy. Nearly..but, not quite. I simply took my Easy French Toast, added some extra cinnamon,coated it with corn flakes, then, cooked them as usual. It adds a tremendously, lovely crunch to your french toast. You will wonder why you have been eating regular non-crunchy french toast up to this point in your life.

Top in with some warm butter and syrup. Bliss..yum.

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk

I am WILD about this wonderful dish. A local restaurant serves it and I always gobble it down. I have a similar recipe that mixes coconut with the crushed cornflakes. Thanks so much for sharing at Weekend Potluck.
