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.

Bacon Stuffed French Toast

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 is stuffed between 2 pieces of bread lathered with a cream cheese/brown sugar mixture. The ultimate sweet and salty breakfast!

Course: Breakfast
Servings: 4
Author: Christin Mahrlig
Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese and brown sugar. Spread one side of each slice of bread with cream cheese mxiture

  2. 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.

  3. In a shallow bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and vanilla extract.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Cut each piece in half and serve with maple syrup.

  1. 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!

  2. 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…
