The Ben & Jerry's Bacon Breakfast Sandwich

Over the top? Possibly. Whether you slap this baby together and eat it over the kitchen sink or layer it lovingly, top it with maple syrup and eat it like a civilized human being, it’s sure to be the highlight of your taste buds’ day. This bad boy is best shared with a friend or two...or six.

French Toast:

  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 C. heavy cream, milk, or a combination
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  •  a pinch of salt
  • 4  slices challah, brioche or other white bread, sliced 1” thick

Mix the first 5 ingredients together in a shallow dish, lay bread in egg mixture, making sure to flip and coat both sides.  Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add enough butter to coat.  Fry bread in pan, flipping when golden and toasty or 2-3 minutes per side, repeat with the remaining slices.  Remove to wire rack to cool for sandwich making.
