Two pieces of white bread are spread with a mixture of cream cheese and brown sugar. Next, a couple of pieces of crispy bacon are sandwiched in between.

The “French Toast Sandwich” is dipped in a mixture of eggs and milk and then cooked until golden on each side.. Drizzle with maple syrup and you have a breakfast like no other.


I love the way salty bacon tastes with sweet foods like in this Maple Bacon Monkey Bread.

The salty/sweet flavor combination is hard to beat. There’s nothing like a good contrast to wake up your taste buds.

This Bacon Stuffed French Toast recipe works best with stale bread so it’s perfect for using up the second half of that loaf of bread you bought last week. If your bread is still pretty fresh, remove it from the bag and set it out on the counter for an hour or so to dry out some.

Just use a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture on each piece of bread. Just enough to help seal the two pieces of bread together. Use too much and it will taste soggy.

Bacon Stuffed French Toast

Bacon is stuffed between 2 pieces of bread lathered with a cream cheese/brown sugar mixture. The ultimate sweet and salty breakfast!
PREP: 10 minutes
COOK: 5 minutes
TOTAL: 15 minutes


  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 8 slices white bread, preferably stale
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 teaspoons butter
  • vegetable oil


  • In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese and brown sugar. Spread one side of each slice of bread with cream cheese mxiture
  • Sandwich 2 slices of bacon between 2 pieces of bread with the cream cheese side facing in. Repeat for remaining slices of bread to make a total of four.
  • In a shallow bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and vanilla extract.
  • Dip each French toast "sandwich" in egg mixture. Try to only get the egg mixture on the exterior of each piece of bread and not let it soak through to the middle where the bacon is or it will turn out soggy, plus any egg that gets in the middle won't really cook.
  • Heat a large nonstick pan or griddle over medium heat. Add butter and a little vegetable oil. Cook each stuffed French toast until golden brown on bottom and then flip over. Add more butter and oil to pan if necessary. Cook until second side is golden brown.
  • Cut each piece in half and serve with maple syrup.

  1. This was so good! I made mine with gluten free Katz sponge cake because I had some left over that no one else would touch. I was out of milk (oh my!) so substituted heavy cream. I made my daughter’s with the last of the bread.
    She said it was wonderful, she normally wouldn’t love the French toast but this was really good.

    This is the most decadent and yummy french toast I’ve ever made! My whole family absolutely loves it! I sprinkle a little powdered sugar on top and serve on a long platter with a little pitcher of warmed real maple syrup on the side. Looks pretty and tastes amazing!

  3. We made the French toast first, dipped the entire piece of bread. Then assembled like a sandwich, drizzled a little syrup and reheated both sides of the sandwich on a griddle. Topped with fruit, maple syrup, and whipped cream. YUM.

  4. Hello, this sounds great but I’m curious to know if you cook the assembled french toast in the pan with butter/oil then dip in egg mixture, then fry again in butter/oil? Please advise and thank you!

    Gah, you are killing it this week, Christin (as usual)! This French toast is to DIE FOR. Salty and sweet perfection!

  6. Omg, I’ve never thought of this and how genius! I made French toast last weekend for breakfast with a couple slices of bacon on the side for my little guy. He is crazy for bacon and he would be so intrigued by this! What an idea…I just might have to try it…
