French toast with bacon and maple syrup

I think bacon and maple syrup go hand in hand like waffles and ice cream

What can be simpler than beating some eggs with some cream. I add a pinch of salt and some brown sugar to the mix before soaking my bread. Ideally I would have used a thick slice of brioche but all I had this morning was some Helga’s pumpkin seed bread. Perhaps not the best for French toast but hey I’m not complaining. 

The streaky bacon was just cooked in the bench top oven. When the toast was ready in the frying pan I added the bacon and poured a generous amount of maple syrup on the bacon. I like a bit of ground cinnamon too.

  1. I’m on the fence when it comes to bacon and maple. One one hand, there are times when it is simply perfect; bacon ice cream, for example, would just be wrong without maple syrup. But on the other hand, I like the purity of a smokey bacon that isn’t compromised by any combination whatsoever.

    1. It’s true I wouldn’t always add maple syrup to everything with bacon. I think French toast, waffles and pancakes served with bacon do well with maple syrup.
