Apologies as it has been about a week since my last post, but certainly that does not mean I have not been cooking. Just as the case with anyone else, a lot has been going on and other aspects of life have taken precedence. So I planned to make this meal a couple of days ago, when Michael’s friend from college came to visit to show off my cooking skills LOL. However, I never got the chance to make breakfast since they preferred to spend most of their time in Downtown Ann Arbor visiting the bars and reminiscing about the U of M college life…boys will be boys I suppose. On the contrary I was living the nurse life and had to work my usual long shifts all weekend. Though the hospital was not particularly busy, I’m still tired simply from having to wake up at 5 am. And as I’ve said already, I don’t sleep very well nights before work due to the little misses super innate way of knowing I will be gone the next day and doing all in her mighty suction cup power to keep me awake.
Now back to the French Toast, ahh, I love French Toast. Not so much a fan of pancakes, which I rarely eat, but waffles and french toast are so my thing. Knowing I had a loaf of Country French Bread sitting in the freezer, I wanted to create something with it before it went bad and this seemed like the perfect thing to use it all up. Note there are many different types of baked French Toast you can do, and there’s really no wrong way. In fact my very first time making creme fraiche French Toast was totally by accident. I actually wanted to make a strawberry and cream cheese French Toast, but quickly realized I was out of cream cheese, so instead of fully giving up on the dish I just used the creme fraiche that I had on hand. Very impressed by the results, it has become my way of making baked French Toast ever since. And why the bacon you may ask? Well because its bacon; salty bacon that can truly transform a dish. It’s pretty much your entire breakfast on in skillet: bread, fruit, protein, and sweets all in one…yum, yum! Here is the recipe below…
