Brunch has become my new favourite part of the weekend.
Whilst breakfast is, indeed, the most important meal of the day, there is definitely something to be said for munching down a brilliantly concuted brunch dish once you’ve shook the dust webs off that lingered from your weekend lie-in. As far as self care goes, I swear by it. Also, believe it or not, it is possible to have brunch that is not accompanied by downing as much prosecco as you possibly can within a two hour time slot. Mad.
That being said, I’m super excited to bring you what is a super easy and quite possibly my most favourite brunch dish of ALL TIME (Kanye Voice). I present to you, French Toast stacked with bacon and strawberries with a load of gorgeous Golden Syrup to keep them company. Sweet. Savoury. An absolute instrusion of flavour for your mid-morning.
Before you get started, you can cook along with me in this very video right here:
Let’s make it shall we?!
- 4 slices of white bread. Whatever brand takes your fancy, I really couldn’t care less.
- 200ml milk
- 2 tbsp sugar
- Few tablespoons of butter
- handful of strawberries. Or you can substitute other berries if that’s your flex. Strawberries are best though. Get those.
- Some icing sugar and some Golden Syrup. Maple syrup is also great. Other syrups, also great. You are in charge. Be the munch you want to.. munch?
- Pop your bacon in the grill. You know how to cook bacon on a grill.
- Grab a bowl flat enough for you to whip up the milk, eggs and sugar. Proceed to whip up your milk, egg and sugar.
- In a frying pan on medium heat, plop your butter in and let it melt but not burn.
- Dip, a slice at a time, your bread into your eggy/milky mix and ensure it gets proper drenched in it. Don’t be tight.
- Transfer into the frying pan, two slices at a time lying flat in the butter. Cook these for three minutes or so each side.
- Take the stem off your strawberries and cut them in half.
- Slice the bread into triangle halves and stack them with bacon in between.
- Grab a sieve and shower your stack in icing sugar. The drizzle all that lovely syrup on top.
