Crunch Berry French Toast

After hearing about this wonderful Captain Crunch french toast for awhile, I decided to finally bite the bullet and give it a try. Not being a fan of french toast at all, this version totally kicks normal french toast's butt. If I were to eat any version it would be this one. The great thing about this recipe is that it opens so many doors for exploration. I am already thinking about all the fun combinations that I can play with. 

Crunch Berry French Toast
adapted from Guy Fieri

Ingredients
3/4 cup milk
3 Eggs
3 cups Captain Crunch with Crunch Berry Cereal
6-8 Slices of good quality bread*
Butter (for cooking-I prob used a quarter of a stick)

Directions
1. Whisk together milk and eggs in a bowl. 
2. Crush cereal so it its a similar consistency to bread crumbs, it's ok if there are a few bigger chunks in the mix (TIP: crush in a plastic bag to avoid mess). Once crushed, place mixture on a plate.
3. Soak one slice of bread in the egg/milk mixture until soaked, but not completely drenched. Take slice and coat in cereal mixture and put on a baking sheet until ready to cook. 
4. Repeat until all pieces of bread are coated. 
5. Heat a skillet/griddle to medium heat and melt some butter so it coats the bottom of the pan. Cook each side for 2-4 minutes, until cripsy/golden. 
6. Let sit for a minute or two, serve and enjoy!


*I used a deli white sliced bread, but you just want to make sure whatever bread you use has some substance to hold onto the cereal better. Regular sandwich bread would work, but the nicer bread gives this recipe an extra notch

Tips/Hints
-The original recipe calls for heavy cream, but I didn't want to buy it purely for this recipe so I decided to go with whole milk. Whatever milk you have will be fine-I have a friend who makes this with almond milk and loves it. 
-I ate mine with a little bit of syrup and it was delicious. You don't a lot of extra toppings due to the sweetness of the cereal.
