"Inspired by a recipe I saw on television, I experimented with different combinations and came up with this. This is a delicious and unusual variation on plain old French Toast. Try it, I guarantee you'll love it! Thanks to the Blue Moon Cafe in Baltimore for the inspiration. Not for the diet conscious, but it tastes so good you won't care! Put bread in a warm oven to keep heated until the rest of the bread is done, if needed. Serve with a dollop of butter and warmed pure maple syrup, if desired." — Bubba's Mom

2 1/2 tablespoons
2% low-fat milk
1/2 (14 ounce) package
brown sugar and butter flavored crispy corn and oat breakfast cereal (such as Cap’n Crunch®), crushed
6 thick slices
egg bread (Challah)
yes it is good and yes not for the diet conscious...i believe this is also like a recipe from diner dives and drive in fame...guy fieri show?
We offered this on our Saturday Breakfast menu at our restaurant. It got great reviews from staff and customers alike....decadent! Oh my! One family asked for the recipe so I referred them to allrecipes.com! Others offered suggestions of various other sugar fix cereals to try including ones with berries or peanut butter Captain Crunch. Paired with a good bacon it's a winner!
I saw this recipe on diners drive ins and dives and thought....hmmmm a trip to Baltimore may be needed! But...made it myself and ......this was fantastic!! I love the crust that formed on the outside!! YUM! DO NOT CHANGE A THING!! PERECT AS IS!!!!!!!! :)~
I made this delicious recipe but I used Cinnamon Crunch cereal, crushed....and a bit less nutmeg. sooooo good, thank you for sharing ;)))
Abso-Freakin-lutely Tasty! Thanks for this...yours truly, Bubba's Dad.
Easy and fun to make with my kids! We have made this recipe and used cinnamon toast crunch instead. It was yummy!!
This was a great use of our leftover challah from Shabbat, but I did make some changes so it would be healthier. I only used 2 eggs, omitted the heavy cream, used 3/4 cup of soymilk instead of 1/2 cup 2% milk, used vegetable oil instead of butter, and Life cereal instead of Cap'n Crunch (far less than the 1/2 package suggested by the recipe). Also, maybe it's just my stove, but I partiallly burned the first slice at 3 minutes on medium-high heat. I cooked the rest of them for 1 minute on medium heat and they cooked perfectly. With these changes, it was great! My family loved it. I will probably make again next time we need to use up some challah.
