This Cinnamon Toast Crunch French Toast recipe is my new favorite way to eat French Toast.

I have a confession to make.

Growing up, I  couldn’t stand French Toast. I thought it was the nastiest and soggiest piece of bread I had ever had. I couldn’t believe that French Toast was something that people would eat and call it breakfast! As I grew up and started to expand my taste palette, I had French Toast at different places and realized it was something that my mother just couldn’t cook well. French Toast among other dishes was something my mom couldn’t cook well which contributed to me not liking well into my adulthood liked Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and Chili (Chili Con Carne).

However, now that I know how to cook a little bit and have expanded beyond my mother’s cooking, I have started to actually like French Toast as long as it is cooked in a way that I would like. If I am going to eat French Toast, it has to be made with thick slices of bread. Particularly, Brioche or Challah Bread. However, thick Texas Toast is fine too. It has to have an obvious cinnamon flavor and it can’t be too eggy or soggy. Because of my French Toast cooking requirements, my Cinnamon Toast Crunch French Toast recipe fits the bill.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch French ToastComing up with this Cinnamon Toast Crunch French Toast Recipe was quite simple actually. The inspiration came from the name of cinnamon toasted cereal. I remember a time where I had French Toast Sticks and it had some sort of crunchy goodness on the outside that made them all the more delicious. I figure I’d do the same thing but with a whole piece of bread. In fact, this entire French Toast recipe fits all of my French Toast requirements.  

  • Cinnamon Flavor
  • Brioche Bread
  • Not too eggy or soggy

To make this French Toast even more delicious, I added crushed Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal to coat and I ate about 3 slices before I knew what hit me. It is that amazing.
