Cinnamon Swirl French Toast with Bacon

I made something delicious the other day. It was also pretty ridiculous.  First I made some cinnamon swirl bread (but you could totally buy some cinnamon bread).  Then I dipped it in French toast batter.  But that wasn’t enough, no, it wasn’t enough.

So I went to the refrigerator and got my bacon bits (I know, I’m pretty much obsessed with bacon bits – you could fry up a couple slices of bacon as well) and sprinkled them onto the toast as it was cooking.  It was divine.  My husband missed out (we was at work).  I was happy that I got to hoard all the bacon-y goodness to myself.  He was depressed that he missed out.  This will definitely be made again soon!

Cinnamon Swirl French Toast with Bacon
An Amy Original

1 Loaf of Cinnamon Swirl Bread
3 eggs
¼ cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp ground cinnamon
¼ cup Real Bacon Bits

Preheat an electric skillet to 325 degrees F.  Spray lightly with cooking spray.

In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Dredge each piece of bread through the egg mixture and place into the skillet.  Sprinkle 1 tbsp bacon bits on top of each piece of toast. 

Cook until the bottoms are golden brown, 2-3 minutes.  Carefully flip the toasts (you don’t want to lose the bacon bits) and cook until golden brown, another 2 minutes.

Serve hot, with syrup if desired.
