Two Peas and Their Pod: Crunchy French Toast

Crunchy French Toast

We are still at the cabin, it has been the greatest weekend ever. Josh loved the surprise getaway! We really didn't do much and that was the best part!! We needed a long weekend of R and R!!!

The cabin is in a beautiful location, just east of Kamas, Utah. It was snowing some of the weekend...we enjoyed watching the flakes tumble to the ground from the window. I am glad we were snuggled up inside!! We watched a lot of movies, some sports, read, slept, went on a scenic drive, etc. It has been so nice!!

I made Joshua breakfast yesterday. I fixed crunchy
french toast with fresh strawberries...and sausage for him. He was pleased to have some "man" food! We love french toast and sometimes we go for a crunchy version! We normally have it with a corn flake crust, but this time I used Honey Bunches of Oats for the outer coating. It paired nicely with the cinnamon and vanilla flavored french toast! Next time you make french toast, give the crunchy version a try!! We love it!

We have to head back to the city sad!! But it was the perfect weekend!! Thanks again to the Dewey's and Gram for letting us stay at the cabin. It was very relaxing and peaceful. Just what we needed!

Crunchy French Toast

1 egg
3 egg whites
Splash of skim milk
Cinnamon-we like a lot
1 tsp. vanilla
Honey Bunches of Oats cereal, crushed a bit
Maple Syrup

1. Whisk together the egg and egg whites. Add in a splash of milk.
2. Mix in cinnamon and vanilla.
3. Crush the cereal on a plate.
4. Dip the slices of bread in the egg mixture. Then dip each side into the crushed cereal.
5. Cook each side of the bread on a hot griddle.
6. Serve hot with syrup and berries if you wish!
