I adore eating breakfast foods at non breakfast times of the day. Eggs for lunch, pancakes for dinner; it’s sometimes more fun that way and super easy. So for my lunch the other day I was really craving french toast, but not the ordinary kind. My fav way to cook up french toast is to have it crusted in oatmeal, cinnamon and sugar. It is quite divine.
It’s best to get your little workstation prepared ahead of time. Mix up your eggs and milk ,as per usual. In another container (something flat like a pie plate) mix some oats, brown sugar and lots of cinnamon. Have both of these things ready before you dip your bread. When they are ready start heating up your pan on the stove.
I originally had more oatmeal mixture, but this picture in after I has already dipped two slices of bread. Do the next step the same way that you would bread chicken. Dip your bread into the egg and then into the oatmeal, flipping it to coat both sides, and then toss it in the pan.
If you are cooking for more then yourself, I suggest turning your oven on low so that you can set the already finished french toasts in there so that they stay nice and warm.
This method of french toast takes a little longer to cook then regular french toast because of the coating, so be patient. If you take them off too soon they will still be way too gooey in the middle. So just make sure that your burner is not on too high, so that they can cook nicely and slowly all the way through.
Yummers! It turned out really well I thought. The sprinkling of brown sugar in the coating caramelizes a bit, making it extra delish. Enjoy!
