  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream 35%
  • 1 tbsp butter melted plus more for frying
  • 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Pinch salt
  • 4 slices brioche bread or challah or Texas toast
  • 4 tbsp peanut butter
  • 4 slices bacon cooked
  • 1 banana sliced

Lime Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup whipping cream 35%
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • Grated zest of 1/2 a lime


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, or a griddle to 350 degrees F.
  2. Whisk together eggs, whipping cream, melted butter, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a shallow bowl or baking dish. Melt butter (or bacon grease!) in the skillet or on the griddle.
  3. Place brioche slices, one at a time, into the egg mixture and hold down for 3-4 seconds before flipping to coat the opposite side.
  4. Place bread slices in the skillet/griddle and cook until golden brown on each side, about 3-5 minutes, depending on the thickness of your bread.
  5. Keep warm in the oven until ready to serve (no longer than about 40 minutes.) Slather each slice of French toast with peanut butter. Layer banana slices and crumbled bacon on one slice then stack another slice on top and repeat. Serve with maple syrup and lime whipped cream.
