4 slices white bread*
¼ cup butter
2/3 cup brown sugar, not pressed down
½ cup milk
4 slices cooked bacon
Pull out your bread slices and leave them to dry out about half-an-hour ahead of preparation. While it’s not necessary, it does help the bread absorb the egg mixture better.
Place the butter in the bottom of an 8-inch square glass pan+ and microwave until melted. Stir in the brown sugar. Place bread slices in the bottom of the pan over top of the butter/sugar mixture.
Beat eggs and milk together and pour over bread. Push down with a fork if necessary to make sure it all gets wet.
Preheat oven to 325°F. Place pan in oven and bake for 20 minutes. Flip bread slices over and cover with bacon slices. Bake for another 20 minutes.
*Villaggio’s brioche style works really well. You can use whole wheat, but the texture won’t be right.
+ You can use metal but you’ll have to find an alternative way to melt the butter and you’ll need to increase the oven temperature 25 degrees.
