8slicesthickly sliced breadlike brioche or texas toast
1teaspoongranulated sugar optional
½teaspoonof ground cinnamon
Whipped cream and syrup for serving
Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat (325-350˚F).
In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar (if using), vanilla, cinnamon, and salt until well combined. Transfer to a shallow baking dish. Fill another shallow dish with the fruity pebbles.
Place each slice of bread into the egg mixture, soaking each side for 20-30 (5-6 seconds) seconds. Then dip in the Fruity Pebbles, pressing gently into each side.
Lightly butter or spray the griddle/pan with cooking oil.
Place bread slices on griddle/pan and cook 3-4 minutes on both sides until golden brown, adjusting heat as necessary to avoid burning.
Top with whipped cream or syrup for serving.
Tip: Lay the bread out on a cooling rack and let it sit for 1 hour to get stale before making the french toast. This will keep the bread from soaking up too much of the egg mixture and getting soggy in the cooking process.
