Fruity Pebbles French Toast

For a kid-friendly brunch dish, try making Fruity Pebbles French Toast! 

Cereal- coated food is one food fad I hope never stops. You can find lots of desserts covered in bright, sweet, and crunchy cereal. Donuts, ice cream, macarons, and cookies are a few treats I've seen. I've even tried some of these, and they were coated or sprinkled in cereal for something extra. Fruity Pebbles French Toast was a brunch item I'd seen online at a restaurant in Chicago and here in Seattle. So I figured since we can't go out to brunch right now because of Covid-19, I'd just make my own.

You can use any French toast recipe you wish, and any kind of bread. I had sourdough in my fridge, so I went with that. I used the Fruity Pebbles French Toast recipe from Delish.com. It was really easy to whip up the egg and milk mixture and then coat the pieces in the Fruity Pebbles. Before I knew it, my slices of French toast were cooking.

The slices looked so fun and bright as they cooked. I halved the recipe since I didn't want to make 8 slices of French toast. After my slices were just a little browned on both sides, I arranged a few slices on a plate and added some non-dairy almond milk whipped cream. Yum! The French toast tasted just a little bit sweet from the Fruity Pebbles, and I could taste a hint of cinnamon from the egg mixture. The whipped cream was also sweet and creamy, and pulled the dish together.

 If you have kiddos that want something different for a weekend breakfast or brunch, or even if you're just a kid at heart, you'll love this French toast!

Fruity Pebbles French Toast

I found the original recipe here on delish.com. I halved the recipe and substituted regular milk for almond milk.
This is how I made mine.

Ingredients:

2 large eggs
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 slices bread
2 cups Fruity Pebbles cereal
1 tablespoon butter

Directions:

In a shallow dish, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon until combined. Working one slice at a time, dip bread until fully soaked, 45 seconds. 

In a separate bowl, add Fruity Pebbles. Transfer soaked bread to Fruity Pebbles and press to coat. (Use your hands if necessary.)

In a large skillet over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Add French toast and cook 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining butter and slices.

Serve with whipped cream.
