Crunchy Pecan Strawberry Banana French Toast
When I made this, our four year old walked into the kitchen where he saw this food I had just put on the table. When he saw it sitting there, he dramatically fell to the floor in total amazement. Yeah, that's pretty much how I feel too buddy. It looks amazing and tastes just as good! I love the extra crunch from the pecans and the fresh fruit is the perfect way to top it off! And if you want to experience pure bliss, make some Kneaders Syrup to drizzle over it. Who are we kidding. There will be no drizzling. Drown that french toast!
2 Tbsp Milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup corn flake cereal, crushed
1 cup pecans, crushed
8 slices thick, "Texas Toast" style bread
3 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup cinnamon sugar
bananas and strawberries, sliced
In a shallow bowl whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla. In another shallow bowl mix together corn flakes and pecans. Rub butter on hot skillet. Repeat as needed. Dip bread first into egg mixture then coat with cereal mixture. Place in skillet and cook until golden brown on each side. Sprinkle each side with cinnamon sugar. Top with bananas, strawberries and maple syrup.
