Golden Grahams Crusted French Toast

I was so excited when I found out that General Mills was going to sponsor 37 Cooks. Ever since I was a kid, I have always considered cereal, and breakfast in general, FUN! I especially love the products the General Mills Cereal Division sent to us because 75% of their products don’t have artificial color or flavors anymore! How awesome is that?

I love cooking breakfast on the weekends, and one my husband’s favorites is French toast. What sounds better than putting two breakfast foods together! The Golden Grahams give this a wonderful, crunchy outside. It’s a fun, different way to enjoy a classic.

Golden Grahams crusted French Toast
by Sarah M.

4 slices bread (I used whole wheat)
3 eggs
1 Tablespoon milk (I had 2%)
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ginger
1 1/2 cups Golden Grahams cereal, crushed
2 Tablespoons flax meal*
2 Tablespoons butter, divided

In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon and ginger. Put the Golden Grahams and flax meal into a large sealable plastic bag and crush it! I used my rolling pin, but use whatever you have handy. I like to make sure the cereal still has some texture to it. Pour the cereal mixture into another shallow bowl. One at a time, dip the bread into the egg mixture, shake to remove any excess and dip into the cereal mixture. Place on wire rack to rest a few minutes.

Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat on your stovetop. Add the butter. Once the butter melts, add your French toast and let fry a few minutes on each side until cooked through. I did two pieces at time, then repeated the process with more butter and the last two pieces.

Serve and Enjoy.

Note* I love adding flax into anything that I can, but If you don’t want to use it, add a bit more cereal.
