The first thing I did with my apple butter was to make some french toast. I know this isn't exactly ground breaking, but it did rock my world. Especially when you have french toast for dinner. with a beer. BAM!
And have you ever tried baking bacon? I can't believe how crispy it gets. Next time I need to cook a big batch of bacon, this is surely the way to go.
|Crispy, easy bacon|
Enough for 1 person
- 4 slices bacon
- 2 slices Portuguese bread
- 2 egg
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbls butter
- Apple Butter
- Maple Syrup
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Line a cookie sheet with aluminium foil and place a metal cookie cooling rack on top. Place your bacon slices on the cooling rack. Bake the bacon for about 12-15 minutes or until crispy.
If your bread slices aren't stale, throw them in the oven, under the broiler, while the oven is heating up for the bacon. But sure to set your oven back to "bake" once you're done.
Mix the eggs, milk and cinnamon in a soup bowl. This will make more than needed for 2 slices of bread, but it's hard to cost the bread otherwise. Melt the butter over medium heat in your skillet. Dunk your bread, once slice at a time, in the egg mixture, leaving about 30 seconds per side. Once the butter in your skillet has stopped foaming, transfer the bread slices. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on either side, or until cooked through and golden brown. While still warm, slather on some apple butter, normal butter and maple syrup. Serve with bacon and more maple syrup.
