  • 3 Place cereal in resealable plastic food-storage bag; seal bag. Crush cereal with rolling pin or saucepan. Place crushed cereal in pie plate or shallow dish.
  • 4 Melt butter in 12-inch skillet over medium heat; tilt skillet so butter covers bottom.
  • 5 Remove bread strips from egg mixture, and dip into crushed cereal. Turn bread strips over, using pancake turner, to coat other side.
  • 6 Cook cereal-coated bread in butter about 4 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Turn bread over. Cook other sides about 4 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Serve with syrup.

Expert Tips

For a little crunch, sprinkle the French toast with cinnamon-sugar. Or use the toast as dippers for applesauce, ice-cream toppings or leftover melted frosting.

Bread that is a little dry makes fantastic French toast! You may want to try French or Italian bread, which isn't as soft and squishy as regular white bread.

The French toast can be cooked in two batches if your skillet won't hold the entire amount at one time.
