The only thing better than having brunch is when you get to have brunch for dinner. We’ve put a spin on the classic french toast by turning it spicy and savoury with bacon, sautéed tomatoes and fresh avocado, then top it all off with a spicy cream sauce.
No. 1 | Make the sauce by whisking together the sour cream, mayonnaise, lime zest and juice, chili powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Transfer to your fridge until ready to use.
No. 2 | Preheat oven to 200° F.
No. 3 | Lay bacon in a single layer on a skillet. Place on medium-high heat and cook turning once until brown and crisp, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate and place in your oven to keep warm.
No. 4 | In the same skillet add the tomatoes and lightly season with pepper. Sauté until they begin to pop and the skins darken. Transfer to a bowl and place in the oven to keep warm. Drain excess fat from the skillet and wipe dry.
No. 5 | In a large shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, chili powder, dry mustard and a pinch of salt. Return the skillet to medium heat with 1 tablespoon of butter. Dip the bread, one at a time in the egg batter for 30 seconds, flip and soak an additional 30 seconds. Remove any excess egg and place in the heated skillet to cook for 6-8 minutes turning once. Cook 1 – 2 toasts at a time and place in oven to keep warm.
No. 6 | To assemble, place two pieces of french toast on a plate. Drizzle with sauce then top with bacon, avocado, and tomatoes. Drizzle with additional sauce then sprinkle with feta cheese and cilantro.
