What is Fruity Pebbles french toast? 

Fruity Pebbles french toast is traditional french toast with the addition of Fruity Pebbles cereal. The bread is dipped in egg and then dipped into Fruity Pebbles to completely cover the toast. It’s the perfect sweet treat to bring out your inner child. The cereal adds a nice crunch as well as TONS of colour. This breakfast food is so much fun to eat!

What you’ll need

  • bread of choice
  • eggs
  • milk
  • Fruity Pebbles cereal
  • oil or putter for the pan

How to make

Let’s get into this cereal french toast recipe! The steps are the same as your traditional french toast but with the addition of the cereal crust. First, add your egg and milk to a shallow and wide dish. Anything with enough room to fit your bread will work perfectly. Next, use a fork to whisk together and beat the egg, whisk until the mixture is fully combined. Then, in a separate dish, add your Fruity Pebbles. 

Next, get your bread ready to soak. You can use any bread you prefer for this recipe. Whether you like a thicker bread, a sweeter bread, a crunchier bread, it is all completely up to you, make it exactly how you’d like! Then, place one slice of the bread into the bowl with the egg mixture. Make sure that the first side is saturated well, then carefully flip the bread over. I found that using tongs was the best way to flip because you can get a good hold on the bread without ripping it. When the second side is saturated, transfer to the cereal bowl. 

Gently push down on the top of the bread to try to get as much Fruity Pebbles cereal to stick. When you feel like it has been well covered, gently flip the bread and repeat on the second side. You may lose some little pebbles during the process so it’s good to get as many as possible attached from the beginning. Next, heat a skillet on medium heat and add your choice of butter or oil to the pan for cooking. 

Place your Fruity Pebbles french toast in the pan and cook for 3-5 minutes until the egg has been cooked and the toast is golden brown. When the first side has been cooked completely, flip and cook for 3-5 minutes on the second side. Serve immediately with syrup and any other toppings you’d like!

I think this french toast recipe is so fun! It can be made for breakfast or dessert, or any time you’re craving something sweet.

Can you use other cereals? 

Heck yeah! You can do whatever makes your childhood heart happy here and use your favourite variety of any kind for this cereal french toast. For any cereal that’s a little bit bigger or thicker, you may have to crush the pieces up for a better cook and bite. 

I think Cinnamon Toast Crunch french toast would taste amazing! Or even Captain Crunch french toast too! The possibilities are endless, you could try it with any cereal you’ve ever loved. How fun is that?!

Can you keep your french toast for later?

I personally find that french toast of any kind can usually last a few days in the fridge. The problem is, it usually gets kind of soggy. So keep that in mind when deciding whether you not you’d like to make extra french toast and save it for later. If you decide to, your best bet is probably to reheat it in a toaster oven or air fryer. You could even try re-toasting it on the stovetop. 

Other ways to make Fruity Pebbles french toast

I think trying this recipe as a french toast bake would be awesome, and it would save time! You would just do all the same steps up until cooking in the pan. Instead, you would put the bread into a baking dish and bake it in the oven. I’m curious to see how this one would turn out, maybe I’ll have to give it its own recipe post.  

You could also try baking it in the air fryer. I’m not the most familiar with the air fryer but it sounds like something that could definitely work in there. And you could cut them into strips and make them extra nostalgic! French toast sticks were the best!
