Bacon-filled French Toast Bites
Why put bacon on the side when its crispy texture can contrast sweet, buttery French toast? We can’t get enough of these Bacon-filled French toast bites!

D’Orsogna Brothers Shortcut Bacon made with 100% Australian Pork is available nationwide in the dairy aisle at your local Woolworths.


For the Brioche cubes

1 Brioche loaf, cut into 3-inch cubes
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
½ cup Milk
1 tbsp Brown sugar
2 tsp Cinnamon
6 tbsp Butter
½ cup Oil, for frying
Icing sugar, for dusting

Maple syrup, to serve

For the Filling

3-4 slices D’Orsogna Brothers Shortcut Bacon
180g Cream cheese
2 sprigs Thyme leaves
¼ cup Maple syrup


Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper, lay slices of bacon on it and cook till they are just about to crisp up. Cool down and chop.

For the Filling

In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, maple syrup, thyme and cooked bacon. Transfer to a large zip lock plastic bag or a piping bag and refrigerate until needed.

For the Brioche cubes

1. For each cube, cut out the centre, scoop and reserve the brioche bread plug. Pipe in about 2 tsp of the bacon filling. Close with reserved plug of bread.
2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl whisk eggs, milk, salt, sugar and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, crush cornflakes by hand to resemble coarse crumbs and keep aside.
3. In a large frying pan over medium heat, melt butter, being careful not to let the butter brown.
4. Dip brioche cubes in the egg mixture, followed by the cornflakes crumb and place in the frying pan to shallow fry. Using tongs, rotate the cubes so each side gets golden and crispy. Remove from the frying pan and serve immediately with icing sugar dusted on top and drizzle of maple syrup.
