 Cinnamon Apple French Toast with Bacon

Cinnamon Apple French Toast with Bacon

plus Toasted Pecans & Maple Crème Fraîche | 4 servings

This French toast has all the cozy vibes, thanks to this sweet and warming array of toppings: crunchy pecans, apples, cinnamon, and maple syrup (mixed into silky crème fraîche)—plus a side of crispy bacon. And though it’s not your average French toast, it’s still pretty simple to make. Baguette slices are dipped into an egg mixture spiked with cinnamon. The apples also get a dose of cinnamon before they're caramelized in maple syrup, brown sugar, and butter. The result? A fabulous French toast that's apple-solutely ready for your next brunch gathering.

Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry produce. Trim off ½-inch ends from baguettes on a diagonal and discard; evenly slice each baguette on a diagonal into three oval-shaped pieces. Peel, halve, and core apples; dice into ½-inch pieces. Quarter lemon.


In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, half the cinnamon, 2 TBSP white sugar, and a pinch of salt until well combined. (It’s OK if there are a few clumps of cinnamon.) Transfer egg mixture and baguette slices to a large zip-close bag; seal and toss to coat. Set aside, tossing occasionally, until bread is evenly soaked. Meanwhile, heat a medium dry pan over medium-high heat. Add bacon; cook, turning occasionally and adjusting heat if browning too quickly, until crispy, 6-10 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.


Melt 2 TBSP butter in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add apples and remaining cinnamon; cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add ¾ cup water, brown sugar, juice from half the lemon, and a pinch of salt; stir to combine. Cook, covered, until apples are tender, 8-10 minutes. TIP: Watch carefully to avoid burning. Reduce heat to medium if liquid boils off too quickly. Uncover and cook, stirring occasionally, until apples are glazed and liquid is thickened and syrupy, 3-5 minutes more. Remove from heat. Stir in half the maple syrup (you’ll use the rest later) and 2 TBSP butter until melted. Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.


While apples cook, heat a large, preferably nonstick, pan over medium-high heat. Add pecans and cook, stirring, until toasted and fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Turn off heat; transfer to a plate. Wipe out pan.


Heat a drizzle of oil and 1 TBSP butter in same pan over medium heat. Once butter begins to foam, add soaked bread to pan (let any excess egg mixture drip off first). Cook, lightly pressing down with a spatula, until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes per side. TIP: Work in batches if necessary, wiping out pan and adding more oil and butter between batches. Transfer French toast to a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake on top rack until custardy, 6-8 minutes.


While French toast bakes, in a small bowl, combine crème fraîche with remaining maple syrup until smooth.


Divide French toast and bacon between plates. Spoon apples and their syrup over French toast, then dollop with maple crème fraîche and sprinkle with toasted pecans. Serve.

Wash hands and surfaces after handling raw eggs. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness. Bacon is fully cooked when internal temperature reaches 145°.
