    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 325°; butter a baking sheet.
    2. 2
      In a shallow pie plate or shallow bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla, and salt together.
    3. 3
      Dunk the bread slices into the egg mixture and soak them for a few minutes on each side, turning as needed to coat evenly but not fully saturated.
    4. 4
      Place the cornflakes on a plate; press each slice of bread lightly into the cornflakes, coating both sides.
    5. 5
      Warm 2 tablespoons butter on a griddle or in a large heavy skillet over medium heat.
    6. 6
      Briefly cook the French toast in batches until golden brown and lightly crisp, turning once.
    7. 7
      If you wish, sprinkle each slice with sugar; place the first slices on the baking sheet and keep them warm in the oven.
    8. 8
      Continue cooking the remaining slices, adding more butter as needed.
    9. 9
      When all French toast is ready, serve with maple syrup.

      Wow, YUM! My family gave this rave reviews and we are never going back to non-crunchy French toast. I don't usually like to talk about altering the recipe, but the egg-milk mixture is very forgiving. I used two eggs and 1/4 cup maple syrup in the mix, plus cinnamon and fresh nutmeg. I think the spices would be more helpful in the cornflakes next time, so they don't just float on top of the milk. Thanks for posting!
