It's a hearty Winter breakfast to fill your belly.

Preparation time : 25 mins Servings : 4
  • 250 g back bacon
  • 4 extra large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 190 ml thick cream
  • 65 ml chopped fresh chives
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 45 ml unsalted butter
  • 4 slices French or Ciabatta bread
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 8 slices tomato
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 2 spring onions, finely springs

Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Place bacon on a rimmed baking sheet.

Cook for about 15 minutes or until golden and crispy, rotating the sheet halfway through.

Drain on paper towels.

Whisk together eggs, cream and chives.

Season with salt and pepper.

Lay bread in a single layer in the egg mixture and soak 3 minutes on each side.

In a large heavy based frying pan, melt butter over medium heat.

When the butter sizzles, add bread and cook until golden and crispy around the edges.

Cook for about 3 minutes per side, flipping the bread once.

Layer lettuce, tomato, avocado and bacon on each slice of French toast and sprinkle with spring onions.

Serve immediately.
