Savory French-Toast BLT

  • Total Time:
Savory French-Toast BLT

Source: Everyday Food, May 2010


  • 8 slices bacon
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives, plus more for serving
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 slices crusty bread, cut 1 inch thick
  • 4 lettuce leaves (romaine, Boston, or Bibb)
  • 8 slices tomato


  1. Preheat oven to 375. Place bacon on a rimmed baking sheet; cook until golden and crisp, about 15 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through. Drain on paper towels.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large shallow dish, whisk together eggs, cream, and chives; season with salt and pepper. Lay bread in a single layer in egg mixture and soak 3 minutes on each side. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium. When butter sizzles, add bread and cook until golden and crisp around edges, about 3 minutes per side, flipping once.

  3. To serve, layer lettuce, tomato, and bacon on each slice French toast and sprinkle with chives.

    This is even better if you add some avocado and a poached egg! If you really want to go crazy, you can add a little hollandaise as well (just don't count the calories!)
