Today on Local 12 - I'm having a bacon bonanza and making a quick on-the-go breakfast for the team! First up - you know you can buy bacon - but did you know you can also MAKE bacon?!
Lehr's in Milford.
I decided to make candied bacon for my friends at Local 12 - I mean - why not try something new?!
I found a recipe on this blog for making it - you wisk together brown sugar, maple syrup (not Aunt Jemima!), Dijon mustard, salt and cayenne.
While the bacon was cooling I mixed together eggs, cream, salt and cinnamon for the French Toast mixture. Then I took a slice of the flattened bread and put a piece of bacon on the bread and rolled the bread around the bacon. Then I dipped the bread/bacon roll into the egg mixture and fried it until it was golden brown.

French Toast Rollups
* 6 slices bread, crusts cut off
* 6 slices bacon
* 4 eggs
* 1/4 cup cream or milk
* Dash salt
* Dash cinnamon
Cook bacon on stove top or oven ahead of time. Whisk eggs, cream, salt & cinnamon. Preheat skillet on medium high and spray with non-stick spray. Flatten each slice of bread with a rolling pin or glass. Take a piece of bacon and set it on top of the bread. Roll the bread around the bacon. Dip and roll the bread/bacon into the egg mixture. Place the bread/bacon seam side into the hot pan. Fry until golden brown and flip and do other side. Serve with a little syrup or just grab and go!
