I have been slacking lately. Like really slacking. I've thought about updating the blog almost every day for a month and failed miserably. I apologize. But I know that once you see this recipe I'm posting, you will instantly forgive me.
In case I haven't made this clear, I love bacon. LOVE bacon. I love bacon so much that when I was very young, my mother's friend whose family owns a pig farm gave me fresh bacon as a birthday present. I LOVE bacon.
Side note number 1: My boyfriend recently(ish) informed me that there is bacon flavored vodka. I'm still iffy about this, but I am going to try it because I'd just be crazy if I didn't. Check it out. I'll update you on the situation.
Side note number 2: The TV is on in the background and Kevin Bacon was just on HAHA... I laughed out loud.
Okay. My french toast recipe today does not have bacon in it... but it must be served with bacon. If you don't serve it with bacon, I will be very, very upset. and sad. and cry. So serve it with bacon. I made this today when my sister and her boyfriend came to Connecticut for brunch (at 1:00...whatever). My mom made some delicious potatoes (with bacon and peppers in it) and a side of bacon and fresh fruit. And still, that wasn't too much bacon. I would eat it again now if I could.
Side note number 3: The restaurant I work at just got jalapeno infused bacon. Inexplicably delicious.
Enough with the side notes and on to the recipe.
I got the recipe from here and changed a few things to my liking.
Vanilla (Spiced) Rum French Toast
Yields 8ish servings
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
6 large eggs
4 tablespoons sugar
2 (or a little more) tablespoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
4 tablespoons of Captain Morgan (or any other spiced rum)
Pinch or 2 of salt
Sliced Bread of your choice
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, rum, and salt.
Dip bread in the egg mixture for a minute and throw on the lightly oiled and heated griddle. Cook the bread for 2-4 minutes on each side or until the French Toast is light golden brown.
SERVE WITH BACON. Maybe even crumble the bacon on top. And have a few slices on the side.
No picture. So, so sorry. It's in my tummy. Next time I eat it I'll post a pic.
