step 1Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
step 2Combine yogurt, maple syrup and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl; cover and chill until ready to bake the French Toast. (If you would like the flavors to combine even more, chill overnight.)
step 3Place the bread slices in two layers in a baking dish measuring 11-by-9-by-2 inches. Set aside.
step 4In a large mixing bowl whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, brown sugar, nutmeg and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.
step 5Pour egg mixture evenly over bread slices, turning each slice with a fork so it is thoroughly coated.
step 6Line two baking sheets with foil and brush each with 1 Tablespoon of melted butter. With a flat spatula, transfer the bread slices to the baking sheets, arranging them in a single layer.
step 7Combine the ground cereal flakes with the 2 remaining Tablespoons of melted butter and sprinkle over the bread slices. Bake until bread slices puff up and are golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes. Serve immediately with cinnamon maple yogurt and sliced fruit.
If you make ahead of time and want to freeze, transfer the baked French Toast to a cooling rack until completely cool, about 10 minutes. Tightly wrap the slices, either individually or no more than two slices together, with Saran™ Premium Wrap
. To organize these individually wrapped slices in your freezer, place them together in a Ziploc® Brand Freezer Bags
and then freeze. When ready to eat, thaw at room temperature for about 15 minutes (or overnight in the refrigerator the night before). Reheat on a nonstick or greased baking sheet in a preheated 425 degree F oven for 10 minutes until crisp and hot.
