Almond-Crusted French Toast

In a large shallow bowl mix:

2 eggs
1 cup egg beaters (or 4 more eggs)
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract (optional)
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2-3 tsps cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt

In another shallow bowl mix:

2-3 cups slightly crushed cornflakes
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Now take 6-8 slices of your favorite wheat or white bread.  One at a time soak them in the egg batter and then coat each side in the cornflake mixture.  (I thought that just one heavily coated side of the corn/almond mixture might be enough)  Now fry them on your Grandma's greased griddle and enjoy with your favorite syrup.  These don't even need butter.  But then again. I'm not the butter police!

Yum! These look really good, Sharon. Other than that bacon on the side, being a vegetarian and all... :-)

Looks really delicious. As I can't eat egg, think I'll use milk or similar instead.

Looks very tasty, Sharon! I never would have thought to add the corn flakes!

You gotta try adding RumChata to your French toast! It's a horchata/rum mixture that's pretty awesome.
