Oh my heavens! Blueberry and Bacon French Toast is my new obsession! Weekend brunch, holiday breakfast or breakfast for dinner, I’ll take any and all if this is on the table!
How did I never have this before now?! Such mixed emotions, I’m so happy to have this in my life now, but all the years I haven’t had it makes me a little sad. All the holidays I could have been serving this awesome brunch. Well OK, I have to move forward and just make it more often now to make up for all the missed opportunities of all the compliments and happy little taste buds!
I’m only a little upset over this because as a kid I loved to put a piece of bacon with grape jelly on a piece of bread or toast, and this is only about a million times better than that.
So another reason I’m a little sad over this is I just learned that Panera Bread used to have something similar to this on their menu. Panera originally started in St. Louis back in the 80’s, except here they are called St. Louis Bread Co. Panera was the first to start listing calorie counts on menus. In addition to that, they also removed all artificial trans fats from the menu in 2005 and completely eliminated artificial ingredients from its ingredients in January 2017. So, sorry can’t it find there any longer, but that’s OK this is easy to make at home.
We headed over to our new favorite store Fresh Thyme to get a fresh loaf of Cinnamon Raisin Bread, because they have a machine where you can slice your own loaf. We wanted some nice thick slices, but the machine didn’t cooperate. That’s OK, it didn’t matter because if you hold two thin slices of bread together when you dip it they stay together just fine.
To make this go quick you just set up your dipping station right next to the stove using an 8×10 Pyrex dish; you can dip, flip, and toast like a top chef! Plus, you don’t have to worry about making breakfast before going to bed and then waiting an hour and a half for breakfast to be ready. I mean, I guess it’s fine on occasion, but I think personally that’s really what bread pudding is. French Toast is toasted on both sides. Technically French toast is a dish made of bread soaked in eggs and milk, then fried.
