Raisin Bran French Toast and A Surprise In My Coffee


Here is a fun way to add a new flavor and texture to your French Toast. All you have to do is mix up your favorite French Toast milk and egg mixture. Crush up some Raisin Bran in a ziploc bag and pour on a plate. Dip your bread into the egg/milk mixture and then coat each side of the bread in the crushed cereal. Pat the cereal into the bread a little for staying power. I cooked mine for 3 minutes on each side. Watch closely because the cereal can brown very quickly! Did you see the surprise I saw in my coffee this morning? This happy face just spontaneously appeared! I was so shocked to see someone smiling at me from my coffee cup! Pretty amazing! SMILE everybody and have a wonderful Halloween!

What a fun idea to make french toast even MORE exciting! Although I always end up burning my toast, so I'm not sure whether I should attempt your recipe :p

And that coffee cup picture looks like an awesome desktop wallpaper! :D

Happy Halloween!

Awesome photo of the coffee! I kept a wine cork that looked like a smiley face in my purse for a year because it made me smile every time I discovered it :-) Awww... the little things...

Adam said...

Wow, did that really just happen in the coffee? That's a sign Meg... go play the lottery :)

Nice idea for the French Toast. I saw on FoodTV a girl who did that with Cap'n Crunch. Yours is healthier though :)

The smile just randomly appeared? THAT IS SOOO COOL! Haha, but I find that so neat! I get excited over really simple things, but it's like... "have a great day" from your coffee cup. lol
