Apple Bacon French Toast Bake
- 10 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 tbsp. butter
- 1 tbsp. pure maple syrup, plus more for serving
- 3 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, quartered, then thinly slice the quarters into 3 or 4 slices
- 5 eggs
- 2 cups whole milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 5 cups cubed sourdough bread
Place the sliced apples in the hot skillet, tossing them, allowing them to get coasted all over with the hot butter-bacon-syrup (mmmmmmm). Once they are coated, spread them out into an even layer and let them cook, without touching them, for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Pour the milk over the cubed bread in a large bowl. Stir well, until the bread is coated in the milk mixture.
