  • 4 slices premium center-cut or thick-cut bacon
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 4 slices hearty whole-grain bread
  • Butter for frying
  • Berries (strawberries or blueberries are good) or apple slices (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp real maple syrup


    1. Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C. Put the bacon in the oven; bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until crispy. Remove from oven and transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.
    2. While bacon is cooking, combine milk, eggs, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a pie plate or shallow bowl; whisk until well blended.
    3. Dip 2 bread slices into egg mixture and let stand 30 seconds to absorb the liquid. Flip bread over and let stand in mixture another 30 seconds.
    4. Heat the butter in a nonstick frying pan over medium heat until melted (but be careful not to burn it). Add 2 dipped bread slices and cook for 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Flip over and continue cooking for 1 minute or until done. Repeat steps 3 and 4 with remaining 2 bread slices.
    5. On each plate, place 2 strips of bacon and 2 slices of French toast. Garnish with berries or apple slices, if you'd like, and serve with syrup.
