A few weeks ago Rick got really excited about making dinner for us. He had seen a recipe on the Food Network that he thought would be great. Usually I'm all for Rick making dinner. He's a good cook, and I'm glad to have a break, but when he explained to me what it is he wanted to make...not so for it. Captain Crunch French Toast.
I have a pretty short list of foods I really don't like and here are two that are on it:
- Sugary breakfast cereals
- French Toast
And so he and Vaughn worked together to create this dish, which pretty much goes like this:
- crunch up some captain crunch in a bowl
- mix up some eggs and milk and vanilla in a bowl (however much you usually put in there for french toast. I can't help you there-- I've never made it)
- Dip some Texas toast or french toast bread in the milk/egg mixture, then coat it in the captain crunch
- cook in a pan on slow heat until it's cooked through
Yum. Yum, yum, yum.
I was shocked that it was so good. The Captain Crunch gave it a nice crunchy texture and even gave a sort of salty taste to it. I think what I hate about sugary breakfast cereals are that they are just way too sweet, and what I don't like about French toast is that it is kind of soggy, and doesn't seem to have a lot of texture to it-- but pair them together, and both problems are solved. Good flavor and texture.
I wouldn't eat this one every day, or even every week, but it was a nice fun treat. We all loved it. Try it if you like!
