Updated Aug 28, 2017

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups Whole Grain Total® or Total® Honey Clusters® cereal
  • 2 eggs or 1/2 cup fat-free egg product
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 10 slices (1 inch thick) whole-grain or regular French bread

Steps

  • 1
    Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and crush with rolling pin or meat mallet. Place crushed cereal in shallow bowl; set aside. In medium bowl, beat eggs, orange juice and salt with wire whisk until well blended.
  • 2
    Spray griddle or 12-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat to 350°F or over medium heat. Dip each slice of bread into egg mixture, turning to coat both sides; coat with cereal. Place on griddle; cook 4 to 6 minutes, turning once, until golden brown on both sides.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

    Oven French Toast: Heat oven to 450°F. Generously grease bottom and sides of 15x10x1-inch pan with shortening. Prepare and dip bread as directed—except place bread in pan. Bake 5 to 8 minutes or until golden brown. Turn bread; bake 3 to 5 minutes longer or until golden brown.
