french toast blt... 30 minutes

the goods:

8 slices bacon
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives, plus more for serving
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 slices crusty bread, cut 1 inch thick
4 Boston lettuce leaves
4 slices tomato

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place bacon on a rimmed baking sheet; cook until golden and crisp, about 15 minutes. Drain on paper towel.

Meanwhile, in a large shallow dish, whisk together eggs, cream, and chives; season with salt and pepper. Lay bread in a single layer in egg mixture and soak 1 minute on each side.

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium. When butter sizzles, add bread and cook until golden and crisp around edges, about 3 minutes per side, flipping once.

Layer lettuce, tomato and bacon on each slice French toast and sprinkle with chives.

Was that good? I saw that one and thought "Hmmm." because I couldn't tell if I would like it or not. The french toast part threw me off.
