Maple syrup French toast stuffed with bacon.

In culinary jungle known as breakfast, French toast is one of the kings. And the only way to make something delicious like that better is to stuff it with more delicious things. On New Year’s Day, I grabbed a couple slices of bread, this recipe and made incredible French toast drenched in maple syrup, filled with apples and covered in bacon.

Pair it with a cozy cup of coffee and you have yourself a wintery morning breakfast.
