Ok, I eyeball mine so i will try to give you approximates........for 5-6 slices of bread: 2 eggs, 1/4 cup milk, 1/ 2 tsp vanilla, tsp cinnimon and scramble it up. Dip bread in mixture and cook in a pan sprayed with cooking spray. We like this a lot.

3/4 cup heavy cream

3 large eggs, lightly beaten

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

3 cups Cap'n Crunch cereal

8 -10 slices bread, such as Texas toast or 8 -10 slices French bread

butter (for cooking)

TOPPING

1 cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 cups fresh seasonal berries, assorted

Directions:

In large bowl, mix together cream, eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Whisk until well combined.

Crush cereal by placing in plastic storage bag and rolling over it with a rolling pin. Once it resembles cracker meal, transfer to a shallow dish.

Moisten a couple pieces of bread in cream mixture until soft but not completely soaked. Allow excess liquid to drip off bread, then press into the cereal crumbs to coat evenly. Set on a sheet pan and repeat with remaining slices.

Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Adding butter as needed, cook bread on both sides until it caramelizes, about 6 to 8 minutes total.

TOPPING:.

In large bowl using a hand mixer beat the cream, confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla until soft peaks form.

Dollop on top of the French toast and serve with the berries.

This is how we do ours...only, I think I might use more eggs...and you kinda have to put the cinnamon in periodically...it floats to the top, so the first few pieces are super cinnamon and everything else isn't. Dh doesn't like his with vanilla and cinnamon, so sometimes I just do eggs and milk.

That's usually what I do for everyday french toast. I love most alton brown recipes

But I posted a captain crunch recipe that's good in moderation <3.
