The silly side of French toast

ADVERTISEMENT

Sometimes working outside the box brings great rewards. Take, for instance, using a breakfast cereal as an ingredient for French toast.

According to a humorous 2013 Wall Street Journal article, the mascot of Cap’n Crunch cereal, whose full name is Horatio Magellan Crunch, captains a ship called the Guppy, and was born “on Crunch Island in the Sea of Milk – a magical place with talking trees, crazy creatures and a whole mountain (Mt. Crunchmore) made out of Cap’n Crunch cereal.”

This recipe is yacht-owner tested and approved. “It’s got corn for crunch, oats for punch and stays crispy even in milk,” one told me. Absolutely delicious. Enjoy, JW.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Cap’n Crunch cereal, crushed
  • 5 eggs, scrambled
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Sliced bread
  • 2 Tbsp canola oil

In a gallon zip-top bag, coarsely crush cereal. Place in a shallow bowl.

Beat eggs with milk and place in another shallow bowl.

Soak both sides of the bread in the egg/milk mixture, then dredge slices in the cereal.

Cook slices in heated, oiled skillet until golden brown on both sides. Serve with butter and syrup or honey.
