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
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.
