Mom… she’s given you everything and then some, so return the favor this Mother’s Day with this single-skillet breakfast feast that covers everything she might be craving. Obviously, we start with a generous serving of bacon…  and then create a rich, tangy-sweet cream cheese and strawberry-stuffed French toast stack—cooked to golden-crisp perfection in the salty, savory bacon drippings. Serve this French-toasted sandwich with the bacon (as well as a bacon-flavored maple syrup) and your choice of fresh fruit for an utterly indulgent start for mom’s special day.
