Crunchy French Toast

Updated on October 24, 2013

French Toast with a twist

I've always liked french toast but sometimes it seems a little plain. On days like that, I like to switch things up a bit and add a sweet crunchy coating to it. The first time I made it, my husband looked at me like I just massacred his favorite breakfast. But he tried it anyways and now when I make it, he's the first one to the table.

For the crunchy coating, graham cracker crumbs are my familys favorite. But I've also experimented with different types of cereals with positive results. Crushed Honey Bunches of Oats tasted pretty good. And for my diabetic father-in-law, I use crushed corn flakes to make it low sugar.

This french toast is a little sweeter than normal and the crunchy outside puts it in a class of it's own.

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs (or other crunchy coating)
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 6 pieces bread


  1. 1. Heat skillet or griddle to 300 degrees and spray with cooking spray.
  2. 2. Scramble the eggs and place in a wide dish
  3. 3. Mix the graham cracker crumbs and the sugar. Place in wide dish.
  4. 4. Dip the bread in the egg. Make sure to coat it completely.
  5. 5. Dip the coated bread into the crumb mixture. I usually have to flip it a couple times to get it completely coated.
  6. 6. Place the coated bread onto your griddle or skillet. Cook each side until browned (about 3-4 minutes each side).
  7. Serve and enjoy!

For Added Flavor

mix in a bit of vanilla flavoring and a few shakes of cinnamon to the egg mixture.

What I use

This is what I use as a wide dish to hold my eggs and crumb mixture. They are perfect because you can dip an entire piece of bread at one time. They also make cleanup a breeze.

      Nice Lens. We like our French Toast plain and simple, just the bread soaked in egg then shallow fried.
