Cheese Brioche French Toast

The biggest dilemma I have when eating breakfast is choosing between a savory or sweet dish. Do I want waffles or eggs? French toast or eggs benedict? Pancakes or smoked salmon? Well today, I said no more! I am having my french toast, bacon and eggs and no one is going to stop me. By combining some of my breakfast favorites, I put together my first savory french toast dish:  cheese brioche french toast with pepper bacon and fried egg. The result? De-licious! You might be hesitant to try this combination, but trust me, you really can’t go wrong!

**Helpful tips and common mistakes

These french toasts are as easy at 1-2-3. The only difference is the addition of cheese and garlic powder in the batter, making the toast savory and not sweet.

The secret to a great cheese french toast is in the heat. Make sure to keep the heat on medium-low to ensure that the cheese creates a crispy exterior without burning the bread. It also doesn’t hurt to have some butter in the pan – butter makes everything better in my book. If you have extra cheese floating in the batter after you’ve dunked the bread, go ahead and spread that on the bread while it’s cooking.

Now, you can serve these lovely cheese brioche french toast as is – no butter or syrup needed. But if you want to take the extra step, top it with crispy pepper bacon and a fried egg. If you can’t find pepper bacon at your local market, purchase regular bacon and sprinkle it with freshly cracked pepper. 

Give me a stack of these cheese brioche french toast and I will be singing tunes the rest of the day! Cut into that runny yolk and let it coat the bacon and french toast, creating a creamy sauce. You can even serve this with syrup for a sweet and salty combination. I think it’s time for a nap now…
