Breakfast is the most grand meal of the day. When you start your day off with a deliciously satisfying meal, it seems as though the rest of the day inevitably is much grander. You have a full tummy, you’ve got a clear mind, and you’re ready to take on whatever the day throws your way. There are plenty of options for consuming at the peak of the day.

For French Toast:
2 loaves country white bread
6 egg yolks
4 whole eggs
2 c. half and half
1/2 c. confectioner's sugar
1/2 c. honey
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 stick butter (barely melted and cooled)
1/4 tsp. tapioca starch/corn starch
1 lb. bacon
1 dozen eggs
8 slices Colby Jack cheese
1/2 lb. bacon
1 c. pure maple syrup
2 pinches coarse salt
Cut your bread into thick slices and place in a 300 degree F oven for about ten minutes to crisp up a bit. In a large bowl, sift together corn starch and confectioner's sugar. Allow remaining batter ingredients to come to room temperature before adding into the mix. Place egg yolks and whole eggs in a medium bowl and mix together well. Add in vanilla extract and whisk into the bowl of cornstarch and confectioner's sugar. Whisk in honey, melted butter, and half and half.
Dip slices of toasted bread into the batter, ensuring that both sides are evenly coated. Heat up griddle or pan to a medium-high heat and coat with butter. Cook toast 1-2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove toast and cook bacon until crispy.
Reserve a little bacon grease and scramble eggs for the sandwich. Assemble the toast, eggs, bacon, and cheese. Top with powdered sugar and bacon syrup.
To make the syrup, dice some cooked slices of bacon into bits. In a saucepan, heat up maple syrup over medium-low heat. Stir in bacon bits and simmer for five minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool before refrigerating.
