Savory French Toast with Hollandaise Sauce
3 Slices Bacon
3 Large Eggs
1/4 Cup Whole Milk
1/4 Cup Half-and-Half or Heavy Cream
1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
1/2 Teaspoon Salt, plus more for serving
3/4 Teaspoon Fresh Cracked Black Pepper, plus more for serving
2 Tablespoons Fresh Scallions, chopped
2 Tablespoons Fresh Parsley, coarsely chopped
1 Large Clove Garlic, crushed
2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, plus more for serving
6 Slices Martin’s Butter Bread
For the Hollandaise Sauce:
3 Egg Yolks
1/4 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1 Dash Hot Sauce
1/2 Cup Butter
Fry bacon until crispy. Set aside on a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Once rested, chop into medium sized pieces.
Melt 1 tablespoon butter on a large skillet or nonstick pan over medium heat.
In a medium bowl whisk together eggs, milk, cream, parmesan, salt, pepper, garlic, scallions, and parsley.
Dip bread in egg mixture, flipping to coat both sides.
Transfer soaked bread to the hot skillet. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Repeat with remaining slices, working in batches if necessary.
Prepare the hollandaise:
In a food processor or blender, pulse together egg yolks, dijon mustard, lemon juice, and hot sauce until smooth. Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave, until hot. Gradually pour hot butter into the food processor or blender while continuing to mix on low. Blend until thick. Transfer to a bowl and keep warm until ready to serve.
Serve Savory French Toast topped with salt and pepper, crumbled bacon, fresh herbs, and prepared hollandaise sauce.
