Description

Miniature pillows of warm bread are topped with bacon, tomatoes, green onions, and two types of cheese. They are small enough to pop into your mouth in one bite, but this would work beautifully as a brunch dish if you prefer not to cut the French toast into rounds.

Ingredients

  • 6 slices Bacon
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • ¾ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1-½ teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 3 whole Eggs
  • 1-⅓ cup Whole Milk
  • ¾ cups Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • ½ cups Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 12 ounces, weight Dense White Bread (such As French Bread, Challah Or Brioche), Cut Into Six 1-inch Slices
  • 1 whole Medium Tomato, Cut Into 1/2-inch Dice
  • 2 whole Green Onions, White And Green Parts, Thinly Sliced

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously butter the bottom and sides of a 13- by 9-inch baking dish.

Cook bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Crumble and set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture, then stir in the cheeses.

Dip thick pieces of dense white bread—I used French bread, but brioche would be even better—one at a time, into the egg mixture until saturated. Arrange the pieces of bread in a single layer in the prepared baking dish. Stir chopped tomato, crumbled bacon, and sliced green onion into the remaining egg mixture and pour evenly over the top of the bread.

Bake the French toast until golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Let the French toast rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Using a 1 1/2 inch round biscuit or cookie cutter, cut out rounds of the French toast. Garnish with extra slices of green onion. Arrange on a platter and serve immediately.

I love this, we have a few vegetarians in our family, and a few with celiac disease, I can certainly tweak this and satisfy everyone, maybe add some chopped peppers for the Veggie people pan. Thanks for sharing.

I’m a vegetarian, so I chose to omit the bacon, but this dish was fantastic! I made it for brunch and it was a hit! I definitely plan on making it again in the future and playing with different cheeses and veggies- it’s a very versatile recipe. Thanks! :)
