Ingredients

  • FOR BACON:

  • 1 pound applewood smoked bacon

  • ½ cup dark brown sugar

  • FOR TOAST:

  • 8 large eggs

  • 1 cup half and half

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 2 pinches salt

  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 12 – 1½ inch slices of cinnamon bread

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Arrange bacon on slotted broiler pan. Sprinkle with brown sugar and place in oven to bake until crisp, 20 to 22 minutes. Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. In a shallow dish, beat together with a wire whisk: eggs, half-and-half, vanilla, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon. Add 2 tablespoons butter to warm skillet. Place a cookie sheet lined with foil (for easy clean-up) near the stove. Coat 4 to 6 slices of bread in egg, depending on the size of your skillet. Cook slices 2 minutes on each side and transfer toast to cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining slices and transfer toast to oven. Bake 7 minutes, with already cooking bacon.
