A Must Try French Toast Recipe

I am a huge fan of Diners Drive-In's And Dives a show on the Food Network Channel...I could (and have) waste many hours watching this, I love to cook and I love watching this show that takes you to different states and shows you how and what they cook in they're restaurants..(I get many ideas from this show for new things to cook at home)
I recently watched and episode which featured a restaurant called the Blue Moon Cafe and they were severing French Toast...What was so special about this french toast you ask?? Well good ol' Cap'n Crunch was in the kids love this kind of cereal and I couldn't wait to try it! So we had some last night it was GREAT!! I would post pictures but it went so fast there was none left to photograph....Trust me this is a MUST TRY RECIPE! Here it is:

6 large eggs
5 tablespoons sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup butter
1 (16 ounce) box Cap'n Crunch cereal (don't use the cheaper brands)
1 loaf Texas toast thick bread

1.Pour Cap'n Crunch into a gallon-size ziplock bag and crush to a course meal -- make sure there are a few good size pieces in the mix. Pour into a 9x13 pan in order to dredge properly.

2.Combine eggs, sugar, cream, vanilla, and spices in a large bowl. It will have the consistency of custard.

3.Soak each slice of Texas Toast in wet ingredients, 30 seconds each side. Be sure the edges are moist, too.

4.Dredge in Cap'n Crunch, lightly press onto each side, and around the crust. Place on parchment paper until all slices are coated.

5.Heat 2 tbs. butter in large skillet, then gently place slices in pan; two at a time.

6.Cook three minutes per side.Cook this on fairly low heat or it will burn. Place on parchment covered baking pan in a warm oven.

Hope your family loves this as much as mine!!
