Bacon, Egg & Cheese French Toast |

I love french toast. I mean LOVE it. It’s been a while since I have posted a recipe for this favorite.

My folks were visiting us here in Telluride a few weeks ago & were quite taken by this egg, cheese & bacon creation. Enjoy it for any meal of the day, we do!

As you can see I grilled this instead of simply pan frying it.

I love grill marks almost as much as I love french toast.

I am relentless with bacon though. I have to have it like every day.

Bacon LOVE!

Runny, drippy eggs always make every thing better too.

Dig into this sandwich as quickly as you can, you’ll be glad you did!

Bacon, Egg & Cheese French Toast

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 17 minutes

Yield: 2 French Toast Sandwiches

Bacon, Egg & Cheese French Toast


  • 10 ounces Baked Bacon
  • 2 large Eggs, prepared "Over Easy"
  • 2 large Eggs for batter, whisked
  • pinch of Sea Salt
  • splash of Half & Half
  • 4 pieces sliced Muenster Cheese (or any cheese you love)
  • 4 slices Whole Wheat or Gluten Free Bread
  • Butter for grilling/frying
  • Maple Syrup for topping


  • In a small nonstick skillet heat a pat of butter over medium heat. Prepare 2 eggs "over easy" style. Carefully crack the eggs into the pan. Heat on one side until virtually cooked with the whites opaque & the center barely cooked. Carefully flip the eggs and cook for just a bit or until the yolk is the way you like it. We love runny yolks here. Remove the eggs from the pan.
  • Add some more butter to a grill pan or the same skillet you cooked the eggs in. Whisk the 2 additional eggs in a bowl with a pinch of sea salt & half & half. Dip the bread slices and let them soak up the batter.
  • Layer a slice of bread with one over easy egg, 3 slices of crispy bacon & 2 pieces of cheese. Make a sandwich with another slice of dipped bread, Repeat for the second sandwich,
  • Grill or fry the french toast sandwiches until the bread is golden brown, has grill marks & the cheese has melted. Top with maple syrup for serving.
  • *You will have some extra bacon & that is a great thing!

Oh man, these sandwiches look so scrumptious, Marla! What I wouldn’t give for one for breakfast… better do some careful hinting at hubby (the breakfast cook in the house)!
