Hell’s Kitchen: Homemade French Toast and Bacon

May 23, 2022


Some mornings it’s nearly impossible to get out of bed, but the thought of cooking a mouth-watering breakfast makes it easy. Home-made cinnamon French toast topped with whipped cream, fresh blackberries and raspberries, and served with a side of crispy bacon is the perfect way to start anyone’s day. The French toast was full of flavor from the cinnamon, and the berries and whipped cream brought all of the flavors together. The salty crunch of the bacon with the sweetness from the syrup was the perfect combination of sweet and savory. This was a very easy breakfast to make, and even more fun to eat.

  • Taste: 8 
  • Tasted great, the French toast was seasoned and cooked perfectly, and the whipped cream and fruit added a unique flavor to mix with the cinnamon.  The bacon was seasoned with red pepper flakes before being cooked which added a bit of spice. 
  • Mouthfeel/ Consistency: 7 
  • The whipped cream and French toast together melted in your mouth.  The berries could have been turned into more of a sauce to improve consistency.  Bacon was cooked well, not too crispy, and not too fatty.

  • French toast is a classic dish, but we made it a bit more exciting with the cinnamon and the toppings.  The spicy bacon on the side added a bit of a contrasting flavor to the French toast that ended up working very well.
