Step 1

Preheat the griddle to 350 degrees F or or heat a skillet over medium heat.

Step 2

Add the cereal to a shallow pie dish or plate. Add the eggs, milk, flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla in a blender and whisk. It's okay if the flour doesn't mix in completely.

Step 3

Add the batter to a separate shallow dish.

Step 4

Dip each piece of bread into the egg mixture on both sides.

Step 5

Press the battered bread gently into the cereal, flipping to coat both sides.

Step 6

Melt a small piece of butter in the skillet or griddle or grease with cooking spray.

Step 7

Place the bread slices on the hot skillet and cook until golden on the bottom, about 3 minutes.

Step 8

Flip and cook on the other side for another 3 minutes.

Step 9

Serve warm with your favorite syrup.
