Breakfast is often the meal that is skipped the most within the student community.

While it is the most nourishing, it is also the most cost-effective, satisfying one’s hunger.

Breakfast food can also easily be prepared for dinner because it is so quick and convenient.

However, this recipe will be a bit more advanced than pouring a bowl of corn flakes and pouring milk over the top.

  • Start off by preheating the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Whisk together 3 eggs, 1 cup of milk and 3 tablespoons of sugar in a
    shallow dish.
  • Soak the bread of your choosing in the egg mixture and turn once, so both sides are coated.
  • Then, transfer the bread into 3 cups of crushed cornflakes. Coat both sides in the cereal.
  • Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Cook each piece of toast for 3 minutes on each side.
  • Once all are cooked,
    transfer to a baking sheet and place in the preheated oven for 5-10 minutes, or until cooked through.
  • Top with fresh fruit, jam or traditional syrup.
  • For students in the dorms, or who only have a microwave, you can also enjoy French toast.
  • First, cube your bread. Any bread will work.
  • Spray two large mugs with cooking spray or spread butter around the inside.
  • Place the bread into the mug.
  • In a separate cup, mix together 1 egg, 3 tablespoons milk and a dash of cinnamon.
  • Pour half of the egg mixture into one of the mugs with bread, and pour the rest into the second mug.
  • Let it sit for one minute so the bread can absorb the egg mixture.
  • Cook one mug at a time in the microwave for one minute, adding ten seconds at a time after, or until it is cooked to your liking.
  • Do the same for the second mug.
  • Top with syrup and enjoy with your roommate.
  • Make it a complete meal by adding a side of sausage or bacon, and enjoy a glass of orange juice or coffee.
