Bacon Stuffed French Toast

I wasn't quite sure about this, but I thought I'd give it a try and all I can say is YUMMY!

Bacon Stuffed French Toast
 1 lb. bacon
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 T. maple syrup (or 1 t. maple extract)
12 slices bread
4 eggs
1/3 c. milk
2 T. butter

Cut bacon in half and place individual slices on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for about 10-15 minutes, until desired crispiness. Drain on paper towels. Meanwhile, combine softened cream cheese, brown sugar and maple syrup in a mixing bowl. Beat until combined and fluffy.

Spread the cream cheese mix onto one side of each slice of bread.  Add 3-5 slices of bacon on top of half the bread slices. Cover with the remaining slices to make sandwiches.

Whisk together the eggs and milk in a shallow dish. Melt butter on a large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Dip both sides of each sandwich into the egg mixture. Cook about 3-5 minutes per side, until golden brown and toasty

We had extra cream cheese mix and used that as a fruit dip for some sliced fresh fruit.  You can use syrup on top but really these are sweet enough to eat all by themselves.
