Monte Cristo Breakfast Bake

Monte Cristo Breakfast Bake

Hey my loves! We are on Day 8 of our 12 days of recipes for Christmas and today’s BOMB ASS brunch recipe is a Monte Cristo bake topped with brown sugar bacon, powdered sugar, and a strawberry reduction.

I came up with this recipe a few days ago and decided to make it for breakfast this morning to make sure it would taste how I imagined in my head and BOOOY DID IT!! lol I love me a Monte Cristo sandwich however,  I do not love ham so I decided I would use sliced deli turkey in place of the ham.  If you are a fan of ham you can absolutely use that in place of the turkey and the same goes for the bacon you can sub it out for turkey bacon or omit it completely. I had to include some eggs in this because….it’s not a breakfast bake without eggs right? Right! Either way the eggs were a lovely addition.  Now, don’t be fooled by the fanciness of the name “Strawberry reduction” it’s nothing more than a jar strawberry preserves that I thinned out with a little water and bacon grease.  If you are using turkey bacon or don’t have bacon fat on hand for your strawberry reduction feel free to replace it with a tablespoon of unsalted butter. Can you believe we only have 4 days left?? I can’t this has been fun and challenging for me, and I can’t lie seeing how you all have looked forward to the recipes each day keeps me excited about creating new content.  I’ll be see you lovelies tomorrow with another loaded brunch recipe.  **kisses**
