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

    What a fun twist, a tender crunch for french toast! I think the flavor of corn flakes would taste really good with maple syrup too! I will have to give this a try. Thanks, Erin!

    I don't have any of my grandparents still living, and I don't have children yet.. But, I remember going to my maternal grandparents and eating the most amazing snacks- my grandmother always had hidden chocolate nuggets of goodness, cookies in the cookie jar and chips. 🙂

    My grandfather used to make the most amazing belgian waffles. I used to think they just happened, but I later learned that he woke up really early in the morning to start the dough for us, then he'd go back to bed. 🙂

    Gosh, after all of that rambling.. I was going to ask if you've made pumpkin pie french toast.. It's one of my favorites- I like to too, because pumpkin is always super cheap here, and there's nothing like fresh pumpkin. This one looks pretty good, too. 🙂

    I came by way of your post about nachos a couple of years ago.. 🙂 I'm posting it to my weekly meal plan. 🙂

    • erin says:

      Hi Tammy..thanks for stopping by! Your grandparents sounds lovely 🙂 It's great to have so many nice memories, isn't it? I have not tried pumpkin french toast. I have seen it many places and it's on my list to try..just hoping my kids will go for it 🙂
