A yummy variation of my all time favorite breakfast food.  Super easy and something just about anyone will enjoy.

3 eggs
1 cup half-and-half OR milk
2 Tbs. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
3 cups cornflakes, crushed
8 (3/4-inch-thick) slices of French bread
butter and syrup

1. Grease a cookie sheet. In a medium-sized bowl combine eggs, half-and-half, sugar, vanilla, and salt; beat well.

2. Place crushed cereal in another bowl.

3. Dip each bread slice in egg mixture, making sure egg mixture is well absorbed. Then coat each slice with the cornflake crumbs. Place on the cookie sheet and cover. Chill 1 to 2 hours (up to overnight) or until firm.

4. Preheat oven to 425°F. Bake bread slices 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Serve with butter and syrup.
