Crunchy Snickerdoodle French Toast

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1-1/4 cups of half and half
3 large eggs, beaten by hand
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 cups cinnamon-sugar crispy cereal, such as Cinnamon Toast Crunch
12 slices French bread, 3/4-inch thick
Maple syrup, warmed in microwave
Crisco shortening to grease pan

Instructions

Grease a 9x13-inch pan. In a shallow bowl, combine half and half, eggs, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. With fork, mix to blend well. Set aside. Crush the 5 cups of cereal into crumbs (not fine, but small pieces). I put the cereal into a gallon reclosable bag and roll it with a rolling pin. Place crushed cereal into another shallow bowl. Using a fork, dip bread slices one at a time, into the egg mixture (both sides) then into the cereal crumbs (both sides). Place each slice in the prepared pan, forming two rows down and across. Cover pan and freeze until firm, 2 hours or overnight. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Remove pan from freezer and place in oven uncovered. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown, turning each slice over once. Serve warm with warmed maple syrup. Yield 6 servings.
