Bacon Stuffed French Toast

I have been seeing french toast recipes that call for bacon everywhere lately!  It is like bacon is trying to send me a subliminal message or something.  I just HAD to make me some french toast with bacon inside!  So, after looking at all the recipes, I came up with what I wanted to do with mine.  Interested?  Just a bit?  You know you are.  I mean….not only is it french toast…but it’s stuffed with BACON.  Bacon is the food that all the other foods want to be like.  

Here is all that will you need.



Cook the pound of maple bacon in a skillet until crispy.  Drain on paper towels, & set aside.  Try to resist eating all the bacon.

Beat an 8oz package of softened cream cheese with 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar, & 1 tsp maple extract.

Spread the cream cheese/brown sugar mixture onto about 18 slices of bread.  Using your finger, scrape the sides of the bowl & eat anything you can scoop up.

Break the pieces of bacon in half & distribute amongst half of the bread slices.

Top with the remaining slices.

In a shallow dish like a pie plate, combine 5 eggs with a little more than 1/3 cup of milk.  Melt a couple tablespoons of butter on a griddle or skillet.  Dip the ‘sandwich’ into both slices in the egg mixture, & place on the preheated skillet.  Cook until nicely browned on both sides.

Serve with butter & syrup.  

See how good this looks?  Trust me – it tastes even better!

  • I would have passed this by, normally, because I don’t eat pork, but I just found beef bacon at my butchers, so now I’m in hog heaven with the recipe!

  • Hi Crystal 🙂 Congrats on having Miz Helen pick your link-up for her Full plate Thursday feature 😉

    I followed the link because most of my family likes french toast – and ALL of us have this thing for bacon.

    Most of us however only care for the flavor of maple in syrup, so I’ll not be adding the maple flavoring elsewhere like you did. I’m betting it’s still gonna be delish though!

  • This looks delicious! I know my kids would go crazy for it 🙂

  • Jacob

    Looks delicious! Thank you so much!
