Make breakfast a little extra special, whether for the holidays (or simply just because) with this decadent and fruity French toast recipe. Crusted in a crunchy layer of Chex® Blueberry Cereal, this breakfast dish is crispy and oh-so delightfully flavored with a sweet berry taste – both from the cereal and the fresh blueberries on top. Top with whipped cream, maple syrup or even a homemade blueberry syrup.

Directions

  1. Whisk the milk, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon together in a shallow bowl or baking dish. Place 2 cups of the crushed cereal in a separate shallow bowl. Dip both sides of the bread slices in the milk mixture and soak for 5 minutes. Dip both sides of the soaked bread slices in the crushed cereal until evenly coated.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Working with 2 to 3 slices at a time, cook soaked and coated bread slices for 3-4 minutes per side until golden-brown. Repeat with the remaining butter and soaked and coated bread slices.
  3. Top the French toast with the whipped topping, blueberries, maple syrup and the remaining crushed cereal. Serve immediately.

Recipe Tip: For a less sweet option, substitute Blueberry Chex Cereal for Rice Chex Cereal or mix half and half!
