Crunchy French Toasts

This fantastic idea did not came through my mind originally. I went to IHOP with my ballet sister and they had this crunchy french toast in their menu as the main course that month. I though that dish as an amazing crunchy idea so I decided to make a healthy version without all the fats and sugar they add to them in the restaurant.

At my home I took two slices of potato bread, egg whites, vanillas, spices, oats and cornmeal. I cut the bread in halves, frothed the egg whites with the vanilla in a bowl and in a dish mixed the oats and cornmeal with cinnamon. I put a pan to warm up. Then, I soaked the bread in the egg whites and then tossed them in the oats mixtures until completely coated.. Finally, i cooked them until crispy and brown.

I loved the contrast of this dish. The inside is soft and moist while the outside is crunchy. The vanilla essence made this dish fragrant. I topped it with pistachio butter and berries. This was a very fun, creative, innovative and unusual breakfast to cook.
