I try new recipes all the time, but this bacon stuffed french toast is probably my new favorite recipe. If you know me well, then you know that I am a naughty vegan. I rarely eat meat, unless its chicken, I never eat dairy unless there is a pizza in front of me and I try to stay away from gluten as much as possible, of course once again unless there is pizza in front of me. I do always try one bite of all my recipes since someone has to be the gauge. This bacon stuffed french toast though, well lets just say I had more than one bite. It is simply irresistible! Oh, did I mention that there is cream cheese and brown sugar blended in the stuffing. Thank you Spicy Southern Kitchen for this breakfast inspiration.
Bacon Stuffed French Toast- Serves 4
4 oz. cream cheese, 1/3 C brown sugar, 8 slices of Texas toast(preferable somewhat stale), 8 slices of crispy cook bacon, crumbled, 4 eggs, 1/2 C milk, 1 tsp. vanilla, 4 tsp. butter and canola oil.
Mix cream cheese and brown sugar in a medium bowl. Spread on one side of each slice of bread. Sprinkle crumbled bacon on 4 slices of bread and sandwich slices together to make four.
In a shallow bowl, whisk egg, milk and vanilla together. Dip each sandwich into egg mixture, being careful not to soak the inside.
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add a little butter and canola oil to the skillet. Cook each sandwich until golden brown on each side. I like to even fry the sides up a little too.
Cut each piece in half, sprinkle any extra bacon you may have left over the top and serve with maple syrup.
