French Toast with Ice Cream and Bacon

French toast with ice cream?  Try it!  It’s delicious!  I used Turkey Hill all natural salted caramel ice cream on my French toast this morning.

It’s best to use a sturdy rustic bread such as sourdough or my easy homemade rustic Italian bread since a lighter bread will not hold up to the custard soak.  All the better if the bread is a little on the stale side.

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Large skillet
  • Spatula
  • Whisk


  • 8 Slices Bread
  • 3 Egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 4 Tbsp Unsalted butter 2 Tbsp for custard; 2 Tbsp for cooking
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp Ground cinnamon
  • 2 Pinches Salt
  • 3 Tbsp Light or Dark Brown Sugar


  • Heat the milk in the microwave for 45 seconds
  • Melt two tablespoons of the butter and mix it in with the heated milk. Heating the milk keeps the butter from clumping up.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the milk/butter mixture, egg yolks, vanilla extract, cinnamon, salt and brown sugar.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat.
  • Soak the bread slices in the milk mixture for about 20 seconds.
  • Cook the soaked bread pieces in butter in the skillet about 3 - 4 minutes per side, until just browned in places.
  • Serve immediately with maple syrup and/or ice cream.
