Crispy French Toast

My mother-in-law was visiting a few weeks ago and she mentioned to me that she’d tried a baked chicken recipe from the side of a box of corn flake crumbs. They sell corn flake crumbs?? I guess it shouldn’t have surprised me. It’s no different from graham cracker crumbs and I’ve been buying those for years. Still, I’m not much of a cereal eater and I’d never been all that enticed by corn flake chicken, although I’d heard lots of people really like it. I was intrigued to see what else they suggested to make with these crumbs so I picked up a box.

Of the five recipes featured on the corn flake crumbs box, the one for Crispy French Toast stood out most to me. I’ve had French Toast stuffed, grilled, souffl├ęd, bread pudding’d – why have I never had it dipped in crispy stuff? That actually sounded like a pretty good idea. And after trying it, I can tell you it’s an excellent idea. The best way I can think of to describe the taste is “donut-like”. You get the crispy coating on the outside and on the inside it’s spongy, sweet and cinnamony. It was pretty fantastic.

I’ll say it – I’m now a corn flake crust fan. So much so that I ventured to try the baked chicken recipe my mother-in-law told me about. Stay tuned later this week to see how it turned out!
