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

For the Hollandaise Sauce:

3 Egg Yolks

1/4 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard

1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

1 Dash Hot Sauce

1/2 Cup Butter

Serves: 3


Step 1

Fry bacon until crispy. Set aside on a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Once rested, chop into medium sized pieces.

Step 2

Melt 1 tablespoon butter on a large skillet or nonstick pan over medium heat.

Step 3

In a medium bowl whisk together eggs, milk, cream, parmesan, salt, pepper, garlic, scallions, and parsley.

Step 4

Dip bread in egg mixture, flipping to coat both sides.

Step 5

Transfer soaked bread to the hot skillet. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Repeat with remaining slices, working in batches if necessary.

Step 6

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.

Step 7

Serve Savory French Toast topped with salt and pepper, crumbled bacon, fresh herbs, and prepared hollandaise sauce.
