Happy National French Toast Day!
To celebrate this day in flavorful style, I have a great recipe that is filled with nutritious ingredients like Post Great Grains cereal that you won't want to miss!
1 cup fat-free milk
1-1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
8 slices challah bread, 1/2 inch thick
2 oz. bittersweet baking chocolate, finely chopped
1 large banana, sliced
2 cups sliced strawberries
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Beat eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and salt in large shallow dish with wire whisk until well blended; set aside. Place cereal in resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Crush cereal with rolling pin. Dip both sides of the bread slices in egg mixture; place on clean work surface. Sprinkle evenly with chocolate; top with bananas. Dip both sides of remaining 4 bread slices in remaining egg mixture; place over bananas to make four sandwiches. Press together gently. Coat both sides of sandwiches with cereal crumbs; press crumbs firmly into sandwiches to secure.
3. Place on baking sheet.
4. Bake 20 to 25 min. or until lightly browned. Cut diagonally in half. Serve with the strawberries.
