Breakfast is basically the perfect food, amirite? Not even just a particular breakfast item, but breakfast in general. Especially since bacon is traditionally considered a breakfast food. And breakfast is also full of carbs, which we all know are God’s gift to humanity.
So let’s take carbs, add some cream and eggs, fry it, wrap it in bacon, smother it in maple syrup, and dust it with powdered sugar. Did your taste buds just die reading that? Mine are dead because I am eating bacon wrapped French toast bites as I’m writing this. Try not to be too jealous -- you can make your own!
- 1/2 loaf French bread, cut into 1 inch thick slices
- 6 eggs
- 2 cups heavy cream
- Dash of cinnamon
- Dash of nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 pound bacon
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
First make the bacon. Preheat the oven to 375, and lay the bacon flat on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with the brown sugar, and bake for 20-25 minutes, until it's about 80 percent done.
Meanwhile, make the French toast. Beat together the eggs, cream, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Soak the slices, and fry them in a pan with a little butter.
Let the toast and bacon cool slightly, and cut the bread into bite-sized pieces, and the bacon in half. Wrap the bacon around the French toast and secure with a toothpick.
Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes, until the bacon is crispy and delicious.
Pile a few on a plate, drown in maple syrup, and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Gain 10 pounds. Don't care.
