Smashed Avo and Bacon on Sweetcorn French Toast

French toast should be made from thick slices of good-quality white bread. The cream style sweetcorn thickens as the batter is cooked, creating a custardy centre with crisp edges. Serve them topped with smashed avo and bacon. A joyful and substantial Mexican /French fusion brunch.

Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 20 minutes Serves: 4
