Why not try the best french toast recipe ever?
I’ve got a great suggestion if you need one. We love just about anything Snickerdoodle at our house – cookies, muffins, cupcakes, blondies. So when I happened upon a recipe for Snickerdoodle French Toast over at the Land O’ Lakes website I knew we’d love it.
The french toast is made the night before so it makes Christmas morning prep simple.
After being dipped in the egg mixture the bread is then coated in crushed up Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, (one of my kid’s favorite cereals) and then sits over night in the refrigerator.
The cereal coating gives the french toast some extra cinnamon flavor plus a great crunch!
Of course, the cinnamon goodness is only made better when you smoother it in cinnamon syrup!!
