Last week I went with my sister to take her daughter back to college in Utah. It was a long drive and we found ourselves driving through a lot small towns. It was lunchtime as we approached Moab, Utah. Moab was bigger than some of the other towns we drove through, but not being familiar with the town and not having the time to explore, we pulled into one of the first places we came to for lunch, Moab Diner. And that’s where my niece had some amazing french toast dipped in crushed Frosted Flakes.
And, yes, I couldn’t wait to get back home and make some myself!
There’s no special trick to it. It’s made exactly as you’re thinking.
Frosted Flakes French Toast
Crushed Frosted Flakes
1-2 TBLS. milk
1-2 TBLS. butter
I used Stirato bread that I picked up at Whole Foods down the street. It’s a little bit of a crusty bread, but not too much. It came un-sliced, which was perfect because I wanted the slices to be a bit thicker than normal. I cut them about 1-inch thick.
Transfer the coated bread to a hot skillet that has about 1 Tablespoon of butter that’s melted. The flakes are pretty dry and they need something to help them become yummy.
Cook on both sides until golden brown. Transfer to a plate and add whatever topping you desire. A little powdered sugar?
We actually had this for dinner tonight. It’s hot again, or still, and it was nice to have something light and easy.
And besides, don’t you love breakfast for dinner too?
