Serve it with fresh fruit and some maple syrup for an amazing homemade breakfast. It makes a great weekend breakfast but it is quick and easy enough to whip up for a weekday breakfast, especially if you do a little prep work the night before.

Tips for making Crunchy French Toast:

  • Use thick slices of bread. If you can’t get a loaf of challah bread and slice it yourself, use Texas toast or a sturdy bread like Sara Lee Artisan bread.
  • To prevent the French Toast from being soggy, just briefly dip each side of the bread in the egg mixture. I know alot of recipes say to really soak it, but I find this is a bad idea when using thick slices.
  • Be sure you don’t have the heat too high. The cornflakes burn easily.
  • For a fun twist, try using crushed fruity pebbles.
