Captain Crunch French Toast

I saw them do this to French Toast on one of the episodes of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, and HAD to give it shot! French Toast has always been a favorite Breakfast of mine since I was little, just ask my Mom and Dad, every family vacation we went on, when going to Breakfast, I didn't even have to look at a menu, I just wanted French Toast. Captain Crunch has been a fav of mine forever too. I thought this turned out quite good!  Use a good heavy bread, like Texas Toast, Brioche, or Thick sliced French Bread, it turns out best thicker sliced. You ought to give it a try too! YUMMO!

Captain Crunch French Toast

Texas Toast or Thick sliced French Bread
2 cups Captain Crunch Cereal (Plain, no crunch berries)
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
dash or two of salt

In a blender, whip the eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon and salt until light, fluffy and well blended. In a food processor or ziploc bag, crush the Captain Crunch until it's chunky crumbs.
Place egg mixture into a shallow bowl, wide enough to put your slices of bread in. Place crumbled captain crunch on a plate with sides.
Heat a large skillet or griddle to medium/high heat. Drizzle with a little vegetable oil or spray with a non-stick cooking .
While skillet is heating, dip a slice of bread into the egg mixture, let sit a few minutes, turn so it's well coated on both sides. Then place into captain crunch, slightly pressing down so you get a good coating of cereal on the bread, flip and crumb the other side. Then, place on hot skillet. Cook for a minute or two until golden brown, flip over and cook other side until golden brown.
 Continue cooking your slices of bread until you have the amount of servings you need.
Serve hot,  topped with butter and maple syrup and enjoy!! YUMMMOOO!
