  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 ¼ tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Get out and measure all of your ingredients.
  • Place rimmed baking sheet on top of oven middle rack, and heat your oven to 450 degrees.
  • Set your wire rack inside other rimmed baking sheet and set aside.
  • Place crushed cereal in 13 by 9 inch baking pan or the equivalent.
  • Add half and half, eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt to a large bowl. The more shallow the bowl the better.
  • Whisk until blended.
  • Soak each slice of bread in the half and half mixture.
  • At least 10 seconds per side.
