CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Today we invited Pastry Chef Antwine Love to make one of her favorite desserts, Sweet Apple and Bacon Breakfast Bake. Here is how to make it:
8 Slices of bread (toasted)
1 Cup of whole milk
1.5 Cups of Brown sugar
1 Large Apple (1/2 cup when chopped)
4 Tablespoons Melted Unsalted Butter
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
5 Pieces of Hickory Smoked Bacon (chopped)
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
In a large mixing bowl add milk, eggs, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and sugar. Mix ingredients until all ingredients are completely combined. Place the toasted bread in a 9x9 baking dish. When placing the bread, alternate adding bacon and apples in between each layer of bread you add. Pour liquid mixture over the bread and let it sit for 30 minutes. Place in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from oven let the dish slightly cool then serve.
