Simple and delicious.
I like using Raisin Bread, but any other breads can be used- from High Protein to Gluten Free.
Make ahead for a special breakfast and let the egg soak int ot the bread.
You can also make a lower fat version by using back bacon, layered on the bottom, and leaving off the topping, and using skim milk, or almond milk.
|12 oz||strips of bacon, grilled to be semi crisp|
|1/3 cup||milk or half and half|
|1/3 cup||white sugar|
|1 tsp||cinnamon ( liquid if available)|
|6||Slice of your favorite Dempsters bread|
|1/2 cup||Brown Sugar|
Spray or grease a 13 X 9 " Baking Pan.
Grill or microwave bacon until semi-crisp, and set on paper towels to drain.
In a mixing bowl, mix eggs, milk, sugar , vanilla, cinnamon with a mixer until slightly frothy. Set aside.
Slice bread diagonally.
In baking pan, criss cross bacon strips.
Place bread on top.
Pour egg mixture over, cover pan, and set aside for 1/2 hour. This can also be placed in fridge, and left overnight
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350,
If using optional topping, mix brown sugar , vanilla and cinnamon. Grate butter into, and combine until mixture is crumbly ( frozen butter is easier to do this with)
Sprinkle over top in a random pattern.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, checking for the donenes syou prefer.
Serve with warm maple syrup,.
Varyby using differnt breads- from whole wheat to gluten free, and everything in between.
It's hard to mes sup this recipe.
You can use Canadian back bacon for a lower fat version, eand egg whites instead of whole eggs for a lower cholesteral version as well.
For a special presentation, try adding a soft-poached egg on top, sprinkled with bacon bits.
