I was sent a fun Cereal Creativity Kit to create or make these fun recipes! Well, I decided to  make the cereal coated french toast using cereals we like (or gluten free so I can have some too). I used different cereals and bread in the recipe but still made it the same way. I was thinking of frying the french toast (because we love our french toast fried) but I was worried the coating would fall off so I just put them on the griddle/pan. My family and I loved them, coating them like that made them extra special. Think up a recipe using your favorite cereals and try it this weekend!

2 cups Cinnamon Toast Crunch® cereal*, separated

Strain out cereal with a mesh strainer. Mix in eggs
