Test Kitchen Notes

Treat yourself to a weekday breakfast or weekend brunch that the whole family will love. It all starts with lightly sweet tasting Sara Lee® White Made with Veggies Bread that's given the French toast treatment with a quick dunk in eggs, heavy cream, maple syrup, and vanilla extract all whisked together. This sandwich gets piled high with bacon, cheese, and eggs any style—side of syrup for dunking highly encouraged.

What You'll Need
  • For the French toast:
  • 2 slices Sara Lee® White Made with Veggies Bread
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • For the breakfast sandwich:
  • 1 teaspoon jelly of your choice
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and halved widthwise
  • 2 eggs, cooked to your liking
  • 1 slice sharp cheddar cheese
  1. Make the French toast: Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, heavy whipping cream, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until just combined.
  3. Add butter to the skillet. Working quickly, submerge each slice of bread in the egg mixture, then carefully place in the hot skillet once butter is fully melted. Cook for about 2 minutes, or the bread is golden brown, then flip to the other side and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  4. Transfer French toast to a plate, then spread jelly on the inside of each slice.
  5. Assemble the sandwich: Add half the bacon, eggs, cheese, and rest of the bacon to one of the jelly-covered pieces of French toast. Top with the other piece of French toast, jelly side facing down. Serve warm.

Just says, "2 heavy cream" - 2 what? TBS?

This has been corrected to 2 tablespoons. Thanks for calling that out, Mary!

Delicious. Also, thank you for not calling it a "sando" or a "sammich".
