We’ve got the best Sunday brunch ever here – a perfect mix of sweet and savory. We stuff thick Texas toast with a creamy ricotta, pistachio, and chocolate chip mixture, batter it in the classic egg mixture, and sear it to golden brown. Serve it up with a side of bacon for – like we said – the best brunch ever. Just make sure you have time for a nice snooze on the couch afterward!

Cooking Guidelines

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with foil. Coarsely crush or chop pistachios. Combine liquid egg, half and half, vanilla extract, and cinnamon in a medium mixing bowl. This custard egg and dairy base is called a "royale" in the culinary world.

  2. 2

    Cook the Bacon

    Place bacon on prepared baking sheet, avoiding overlap, and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside.

  3. 3

    Make the Filling

    In a small bowl, combine ricotta, half the powdered sugar, chocolate chips, and pistachios (reserving some chips and pistachios for garnish). Set aside.

  4. 4

    Cook the French Toast

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Dip 2 slices of Texas toast into egg mixture for 15-30 seconds, shake off excess, and place in hot pan. Cook about 2 minutes per side, or until well-browned on both sides. Remove to a plate, refresh oil, and repeat with remaining slices of Texas toast. Avoid soggy bread with a shorter soak time.

  5. 5

    Assemble the French Toast

    Evenly distribute ricotta stuffing between 2 slices of cooked French toast. Top off with remaining slices.

  6. 6

    Plate the Dish

    Slice assembled French toast in half on an angle (bias). Arrange 2 halves on a plate and garnish with remaining powdered sugar (optional: sift through a wire-mesh strainer for an even dusting), chocolate chips, pistachios, and syrup. Add 3 slices of bacon to the plate and dig in!
