French Toast BLT's - seriously, genius. Whoever thought of this idea was on top of their game. These little sandwiches were so amazing that I can't wait for another opportunity to make them! Since the holidays are coming up, maybe some of you will be inspired to create these fancy little BLT's to impress your guests!
French Toast BLT's
Adapted from E is for Eat
Makes: 4 sandwiches
4 slices brioche bread (or 8 baguette slices)
2 large slices Applewood smoked bacon, cooked and cut in half
3/4 cup milk (or half and half)
1/4 cup chopped green onions
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp flour
Fresh ground salt and pepper
2-3 tbsp unsalted butter (optional)
4 Roma tomatoes, sliced
4 lettuce leaves
Cook the bacon until golden brown and crisp. Keep warm in microwave or oven until ready to serve.
While bacon cooks, whisk together eggs, cream, chives, parmesan, and flour. Season with salt and pepper. Lay bread in single layer in large shallow dish and coat with egg mixture. Soak 20-30 mins, turning once in the dish to allow for proper soaking.
Next, cook bread as you would cook French toast. We use a nonstick pan, so I don't use any butter or cooking spray. If you use a skillet, melt butter or use cooking spray to prevent sticking. Flip bread when the egg is brown and crisp. Keep cooked pieces warm in microwave or oven until ready to serve.
To assemble, layer tomato, lettuce, and bacon on a slice of French toast. Top with another slice or serve open faced. Another great addition that we thought of as we were devouring these babies would be to add sliced avocado if you like. Enjoy!
