  • 8 1/2 slices french bread (texas toast will work as well)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk or half & half
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Vegetable or Canola oil
  • Confectioners sugar for dusting (optional)

My husband and I traveled to Kauai, Hawaii this summer with friends and stayed in a timeshare condo. I had decided to fix a big breakfast the day before we left, including french toast, but realized after getting things going, we did not have suryp and only 4 packages of sugar. In a pinch I grabbed my friend’s box of Captin Cruch cereal and crushed it up, hoping it would add enough sweetness to the french toast. It was some of the best french toast I had ever eaten!! It is crunchy on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside with just enough sweetness! We now fix it for our family breakfast once a month. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!


  1. 1In a large shallow bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and nutmeg.
  2. 2Soak the sliced bread in the egg mixture, turning over to make sure both sides are evenly covered.
  3. 3Pour the crushed cereal into a shallow bowl and evenly coat the egg soaked bread.
  4. 4In a large skillet heat the 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat.
  5. 5Place 2 – 3 slices of the bread into the pan and cook until golden brown (approximately 2 -3 minutes on each side).
  6. 6Dust with confectioners sugar and serve immediately.
