Crunchy Cinnamon French Toast Sticks
4 slices of wheat bread
3 eggs or 1/2 cup egg substitute
1/4 cup milk
1 cup corn flakes cereal - crushed to make about 3/4 cup
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Heat a griddle or large fry pan to medium-high heat (about 325 degrees if using an electric griddle).
Cut each slice of bread into 3-4 strips lengthwise. Place the crushed corn flakes in a large shallow bowl. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, cinnamon, and vanilla. Grease the griddle or fry pan with butter.
One at a time, dredge each strip of bread in the egg mixture, coating completely. Then dredge the strips in the crushed corn flakes, so that a scattered amount of corn flakes sticks to both flat sides of the bread. Carefully transfer the sticks to the fry pan or griddle. Cook both sides until nicely browned (2 to 3 minutes per side). The second side always browns a little faster than the first.
Transfer french toasts sticks to a plate to cool until safe to the touch. Dust top side with powdered sugar and enjoy!
