Union Bar & Grill
Brioche French Toast Stuffed with Fig & Bacon Jam
French toast is a stalwart of the brunch table, but it’s also one of the most misunderstood. If prepared properly, it’s essentially a fried bread pudding, crispy around the edges and creamy on the inside. But too often, what shows up on weekend breakfast menus are flaccid, feeble slices of white bread drowning in a pool of egg wash and corn syrup.
Not Union Bar & Grill. Their Brioche French Toast consists of thick slabs of buttery Levalee Brioche fried to a golden brown, slathered with real maple syrup, and stuffed with a filling of chunky fig and bacon jam. The results are decadent, but with the earthiness of the dried figs and the faint smokiness of the bacon balancing it all out, Union’s French toast is a treat that could make a sweet tooth out of all of us.
