I love savory French toast. And when you combine salty, fried, eggy bread with bacon, tomatoes, and fresh, crunchy shredded romaine, you get a brunch that will set you straight no matter what you got yourself into the night before. Think of this mash-up as an elevated breakfast sandwich. Two great features that both of these classic dishes have in common is that most of the ingredients are frequently found in even a sadly empty fridge. Which is ideal for those of us who may have had a late night, when the thought of going any farther than the couch makes you cringe.
