Most Important Meal of the Day

I found this recipe in my Guy Fieri Diner's, Drive-Ins and Dives cookbook, and am dying to try it out this weekend. Give it a try, and let me know what you think.

Cap'n Crunch French Toast
Adapted from a recipe courtesy of Blue Moon Cafe

4 to 5 Servings

1/2 cup heavy cream
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 cups Cap'n Crunch cereal
8 to 10 slices bread, Texas Toast or French bread
Butter for cooking
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons confectioner's sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups assorted fresh berries

1. Mix the cream, eggs, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl and whisk until combined.
2. Put the cereal in a storage bag and use a rolling pin to crush cereal until it resembles cracker meal. Transer the cereal to a shallow dish.
3. Dip a couple slices of the bread into the cream mixture until soft but not completely soaked. Let excess liquid drip from the bread, then press into the cereal crumbs to coat evenly. Place on a sheet pan and repeat with the remaining slices.
4. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat, add butter as needed, and cook the bread until caramelized on both sides, about 6 to 8 minutes total.
5. For the whipped cream topping: Beat the cream, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl with a hand mixer to soft peaks. Dollop on top of the French toast and serve with the berries.
