French Toast for Breakfast

Mouth Watering Ingredients

You will need to have six large eggs, five tablespoons of sugar, two cups of heavy cream, one teaspoon of cinnamon, half a teaspoon of nutmeg, half a cup of butter, sixteen ounces of Cap’n Crunch (and only Cap’n Crunch. Unfortunately the cheaper brands just don’t cut it) and one loaf of Texas toast thick bread. Just reading the list of ingredients is enough to get your mouth watering!

Now that you’re prepared with all the necessary ingredients, its time to get cooking! Begin by pouring the sixteen ounces of Cap’n Crunch into a gallon-size bag. We recommend ziplock brand so the bag can close and stay shut as it is about to get one heck of a beating! Starting crushing the Cap’n Crunch into crumbs. This is a really fun task to do with children. Give them a bowl and instruct them to use the bottom of the bowl to smooch the cereal into crumbs. Just don’t crush it too fine! You’ll enjoy a few big pieces in the mix. Once the cereal is thoroughly ground, pour it into a nine by thirteen pan. This will make it easier for you and your family to dredge.

Leave your crumbled Cap’n Crunch to hang out on the pan while you get to mixing. Combine all six of your large eggs, the five tablespoons of sugar, the two cups of heavy cream, the single teaspoon of cinnamon and half teaspoon nutmeg into a nice big bowl. Stir until the mixture has the same consistency of custard. If it gets hard to stir, or if you’re letting little ones mix, put the bowl on a table and stand over it for an easier angle.

Soaking In The Goodness!

Now it is time to bring out the Texas toast thick bread. Soak each slice in the wet ingredients. You’ll want leave it in the mixture for at least thirty seconds on each side to ensure that it is fully soaked with as much flavor as possible. Don’t forget about the edges! Once it is good and saturated, dredge each slice in the crushed Cap’n Crunch. Press the bread on each side, including the crust. Leave the covered slices on parchment paper until you’ve covered all the bread you want.

Once all your bread is covered, heat up two tablespoons of butter in a large skillet. You should then be able to cook two slices of bread at a time. Cook three minutes on one side and three minutes on the other. Once they are done, leave the slices on a baking pan in the warm oven until you’re ready to eat.
