Total time: 20 minutes | Serves 4
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups corn flakes
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 6 (1/2- to 3/4-inch thick) slices white bread
  • 6 tablespoons sugar

Step 1Combine eggs, milk, nutmeg and salt in shallow bowl, stirring briskly so mixture is blended well and uniform in color.

Step 2Crumble corn flakes slightly (to make each flake about half its original size) and spread them in a layer on a piece of wax paper.

Step 3Dip (don't soak) both sides of each slice of bread in milk batter. Press each slice of bread into corn flakes to coat well.

Step 4Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 12-inch skillet over medium heat and fry 3 slices of bread until golden brown on each side, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. When done, sprinkle about 1 tablespoon sugar on top of each slice and keep warm in 225-degree oven while frying other 3 slices in remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Serve hot.
