I hope you’re having a wonderful Christmas break!
Here’s a favorite breakfast that I cook once in a while for the family. It’s a typical American style breakfast that was given to me by a good friend in the states.
As I’m probably going to cook it at home on New Years morning, I thought today would be a good time to share it so that you can get the ingredients in.
CARAMEL APPLES WITH CINNAMON TOAST AND CRISPY BACON
Ingredients for 3-4 servings:
Tin of sliced apples (or slice and cook your own)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
½ a pint of milk
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
Sliced white bread (thick and stale is best)
Pack of streaky bacon
Place apples in a small saucepan – add brown sugar and butter. Simmer until the juice turns into a nice, sticky syrup.
Whilst the apples are cooking, whisk eggs, white sugar and milk together with a fork. Add tsp of cinnamon and whisk in.
Place the mixture in a shallow dish.
Start to grill or fry bacon until crisp.
Whilst bacon is cooking, take a large frying pan and get hot.
Add a knob of butter. When it starts to froth, take a slice of bread and dip in the egg mixture for around 5 seconds on each side. Quickly place in frying pan and cook for around 1-2 minutes on each side until nicely browned.
Cut bread through into 2 triangles and plate up. Spoon hot apples onto plate and top with crispy bacon.
