Description

Cinnamon Toast Crunch French Toast Bites are a breakfast marvel made with sweet Hawaiian rolls coated in your favorite cinnamon-sugar cereal.


Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 12 King’s Hawaiian Rolls (each cut into 3 small looking bread slices)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 and 1/2 cups milk
  • 4 cups Cinnamon toast crunch cereal, crushed

For serving:

  • Maple syrup
  • Powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Coat a rimmed sheet pan with the 2 tablespoons softened butter so that there is a thick layer of butter on the bottom of the pan. Set aside.
  2. Slice each roll evenly into 3 mini bread slices that look like toast.
  3. Beat eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl until well combined and slightly fluffy. Whisk in milk and then transfer the egg mixture to a shallow dish.
  4. Place crushed cinnamon toast crunch cereal in a shallow dish.
  5. Dip one toast bite at a time into the egg mixture, turning to briefly soak both sides and let any excess egg mixture drip back into the shallow dish before transferring to the crushed cereal.
  6. Place the toast bite to the bowl with crushed cereal and press into the cereal on both sides to coat completely.
  7. Place the toast bites in an even layer on the prepared sheet pan.
  8. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until the bottoms of the toast bites are golden brown. Flip and let bake another 5 minutes until the bottom sides are golden brown.
  9. Serve warm with a sprinkle of powdered sugar (if desired) and maple syrup to dip them in.
