  1. Mix the eggs, milk and maple syrup and pour the mixture into a large flat tray (like a deep baking tray). Soak the brioche slices into the egg mixture evenly, 5mins each side.
  2. Cook the bacon while soaking the toast, lay the bacon on the cold pan (without oil) then cook on a medium heat for 5mins each or until the bacon get golden and crispy. Add a generous amount of black pepper and a pinch of salt, before you set them aside and keep warm.
  3. Melt the butter in the pan and cook the toast until golden on each side. Serve with crispy bacon and a drizzle of maple syrup.
