Toast is one of the first comfort foods most of us can remember. And now we’ve embraced this first food love and transformed it into a grown-up dish with this delicious recipe.

Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F degrees.

Step 2

Heat oil in a medium pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chopped bacon and cook until very crispy, about 4 to 5 minutes.

Step 3

Remove pan from heat and transfer bacon onto paper towel to absorb any excess grease.

Step 4

Place ciabatta slices onto a large baking sheet. Once the remaining bacon fat in the pan has cooled slightly, brush onto the top of each slice of bread and let bake in the oven until they become crispy and begin to brown slightly, approximately 10 to 12 minutes.

Step 5

Next, heat butter in a large pan on medium-high heat. Once melted, add honey and spices and stir until well-combined. Add in apple slices and cook until tender, stirring regularly, about 6-8 minutes. Keep warm on stove until ready to assemble.

Step 6

Place warm toast on a platter, spread Greek yogurt liberally on each slice, followed by a spoonful of the apple mixture and crispy bacon. Finish with generous drizzles of the salted caramel sauce.
