The Perfect Breakfast in Bed Recipe [Intro to Cooking]

It’s Mother’s Day! You know what that means! It means we all need to wake up extra early and give mom breakfast in bed! My mom loves the basic pancakes and scrambled eggs, but this year I wanted to spice it up and do something different! I scoured the Internet, looking for something tasty (but easy!) to make that she would love to chow down on from the comfort of her bed!

That’s when I found this amazing recipe for crispy french toast! It’s a different spin on a classic breakfast favorite! Thanks to A Beautiful Mess, you guys can all make this delicious treat for your mom too! Check out the recipe below and get to cookin’!

Here’s What You Need

8 thick slices of french bread
5 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4-5 cups breakfast cereal (I used Honey Bunches of Oats)
butter and oil for cooking

Here’s How To Do It

Start by crushing up the cereal. You can do this by placing all the cereal in a Ziplock bag, sealing and crushing with your hands. Lay the crushed cereal out on a plate. In a bowl combine the eggs, milk, extract and cinnamon and whisk to combine. Heat a pan over medium/high heat and melt a few tablespoons of butter and/or oil. Dip each side of the bread in the egg mixture, then dip the soaked bread in the cereal.

Shake off an excess cereal and place the bread in the hot pan. Use your spatula to gently press the bread into the pan, helping it cook the centers of each slice. Once it’s ready (2-3 minutes) flip and cook the other side. Adjust your heat if you notice your cereal getting too toasted before the egg cooks. Repeat with all the slices. Serve hot with maple syrup and fresh fruit.
