  • 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 degrees. 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.
