Bacon Wrapped French Toast Cups

I love traditional breakfast, brunch and "breakfast for dinner" foods! I think it's that combination of salty and sweet that gets me every time. This is why Bacon Wrapped French Toast Cups are so appealing to me.

This recipe got a huge thumbs up from my Mom, sister and my kids! We all loved it.

Bacon Wrapped French Toast Cups

Main Ingredients:
  • 1/2 lb bacon, uncooked
  • 1 French loaf (the large, wide white freshly baked loaves), cubed
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Topping Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Directions:
Step 1:
Fry bacon strips for a couple of minutes (should not be fully cooked) in a fry pan or in the oven.

Step 2:
Pat any grease from the bacon with a paper towel.

Step 3:
Wrap bacon inside muffin tins (we use our stoneware muffin pan, but if you are using metal, you may consider lightly greasing the sides first).

Step 4:
Whisk together the milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Add bread cubes and combine well.

Step 5:
Fill muffin cups with egg/bread mixture and press down (cup should be approximately 3/4 full).

Step 6:
Combine the topping ingredients, use a pastry mixer or a fork until butter is pea sized or smaller and sprinkle on top of each muffin cup.

Step 7:
Bake in 350° oven for approximately 35 minutes or until tops are browned.

Serving Notes:
These are delicious served with fresh fruit and pure maple syrup!

Family Thoughts:

This is a super fun way to serve French Toast to the family. This version is sweeter than your traditional French Toast because of the added sugar and the crumbly topping. It makes for a great brunch item!

  7. mmmmm, these look so good, just wondering if it could be done in a 9 x 13 dish and then cut into squares

    1. You could line the 9x13 dish with the bacon but I might be inclined to cut the bacon first because it might be difficult to cut after cooked. Yes, I think this is a doable. If you try it, be sure to come back and let us know how it worked out! We'd love for you to post a picture on our FB page too!
