Maple and Bacon Stuffed French Toast

I started by cooking the bacon.  If you want bacon that stays pretty much straight, instead of curling up into unrecognizable shapes, then start with a cool griddle or pan.  Add the bacon before the pan heats up.  Cooking Bacon

Then I whipped up the filling, and apparently didn’t take any pictures of that…

So, on to the french toast.  I make the milk and egg dredge by mixing the eggs with half of the cinnamon.  Then I add the nutmeg, and vanilla, and last the milk.  Making Stuffed French Toast

Slice the bread in fairly thick slices, about 3/4 of an inch to 1 inch.  Slliced French Bread for Stuffed French Toast

Preheat your griddle, or skillet.  I use crisco to grease the griddle, this is the trick I learned from my grandma.  Gets the edges of the french toast a little crispy.  Use crisco to get crispy french toast

Dredge the first four pieces of bread in the milk mixture.  Let each side soak for about 10-15 seconds, before turning to the other side.  Then move each piece to the HOT griddle.

After 4 slices, add the remaining half of the cinnamon, and stir.  By adding half of the cinnamon now, you are ensuring that the last slices get cinnamon as well.  Have you ever noticed how there isn’t much cinnamon left for the last slices?  Not anymore!

Once you get all 8 slices on the griddle, cook them on each side until golden brown.Cooking french toast

Once the toast is cooked on both sides, you can spread some of the filling on one piece, and top it with another slice of french toast.  Stuffing the french toast

There you have it!
