Crispy Cinnamon French Toast

This is a popular recipe in our house - usually for dinner. In fact, tonight's dinner! This recipe is also great for a group since it's all done at the same time, unlike normal french toast where someone is always waiting to eat! Try it - it's really easy and I think you'll love it. Even those of you that don't like soggy bread, and you KNOW who you are. ;)

Crispy Cinnamon French Toast
3 cups corn flakes -- coarsely crushed
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
12 1" thick french bread slices

Preheat oven to 450°. Combine crushed cereal, sugar and cinnamon in pie plate. Whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla and salt in another pie plate. Let bread soak in egg mixture about 30 seconds on each side; coat with cereal mixture. Place on cookie sheet sprayed lightly sprayed with non-stick spray. Drizzle 2 Tbsp. melted butter over slices. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Serve with warmed maple syrup. (Bacon and sausage optional.)
