Captin Crunch French Toast Recipe

Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: 40 minutes | Active Time: | Makes: 4 servings

My husband and I traveled to Kauai, Hawaii this summer with friends and stayed in a timeshare condo. I had decided to fix a big breakfast the day before we left, including french toast, but realized after getting things going, we did not have suryp and only 4 packages of sugar. In a pinch I grabbed my friend’s box of Captin Cruch cereal and crushed it up, hoping it would add enough sweetness to the french toast. It was some of the best french toast I had ever eaten!! It is crunchy on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside with just enough sweetness! We now fix it for our family breakfast once a month. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
