Crunchy French Toast

We are still at the cabin, it has been the greatest weekend ever. Josh loved the surprise getaway! We really didn’t do much and that was the best part!! We needed a long weekend of R and R!!!

The cabin is in a beautiful location, just east of Kamas, Utah. It was snowing some of the weekend…we enjoyed watching the flakes tumble to the ground from the window. I am glad we were snuggled up inside!! We watched a lot of movies, some sports, read, slept, went on a scenic drive, etc. It has been so nice!!

I made Joshua breakfast yesterday. I fixed crunchy french toast with fresh strawberries…and sausage for him. He was pleased to have some “man” food! We love french toast and sometimes we go for a crunchy version! We normally have it with a corn flake crust, but this time I used Honey Bunches of Oats for the outer coating. It paired nicely with the cinnamon and vanilla flavored french toast! Next time you make french toast, give the crunchy version a try!! We love it!

We have to head back to the city today…so sad!! But it was the perfect weekend!! Thanks again to the Dewey’s and Gram for letting us stay at the cabin. It was very relaxing and peaceful. Just what we needed!

  14. I had some issues with this recipe and it made me so sad. Maybe you could point me in the right direction? I had a hard time getting the cereal to stick to the dipped bread and it didn’t want to cook all the way through and they ended up being too soggy to eat.
