BUTTERY FRENCH TOAST WITH CRISPY BACON, FRUIT AND MAPLE SYRUP. WASHED DOWN WITH FRESH ORANGE JUICE AND LOTS OF COFFEE.
Slice the bread
Fry or grill the bacon until crispy
Meanwhile combine the egg mixture and lightly beat
Lay the bread onto a deep plate and pour the egg mixture over it, turning over and evenly soaking all the bread slices - the sugar and vanilla will sink to the bottom so drizzle it over the bread at the end.
Heat a frying pan on a medium high heat and melt the butter then reduce the heat a little.
Add the soaked bread slices to the hot pan and allow them to lightly brown, keep an eye on them and flip them back and forth till they are as well done as you would like.
Serve the french toast with the fruit and the bacon and a big drizzle of maple syrup!
2-3 tsp light brown sugar
1 Brioche Bread loaf
4-6 slices of streaky bacon
1 handful of berries or fruit of your choice, used here: blueberries and figs.
Large knob of butter
