ingredients

  • 300 g smoked turkey breast
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup (125 ml) milk
  • ½ cup (125 ml) 35% cream
  • 3 tbsp. (45 ml) brown sugar
  • ½ tsp. (2.5 ml) vanilla extract
  • 8 slices white bread
  • ½ cup (125 ml) cranberry preserves
  • 6-8 slices fontina cheese
  • Butter, for cooking

instructions

  1. Break the eggs into a small mixing bowl, pour in the milk, cream and vanilla, salt lightly and whisk together.
  2. Pour mixture into a pie plate or a flat-bottomed bowl and set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 200°F (95°C) and place a small baking sheet on the middle rack.
  4. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat and melt 2 spoons of butter.
  5. When butter is almost melted, dip 1 slice of bread into the egg mixture, turning to soak completely, without over softening. Place the dipped bread into the sizzling butter and repeat with 1 or 2 more slices.
  6. When bread is golden brown on one side, turn with a flexible spatula and cook another minute. Remove from pan and place in oven.

  8. Spread 4 of the French toast slices generously with cranberry preserves, top with smoked turkey slices, cheese and bacon, close the sandwiches, cut in 2 and serve immediately.
