EAT This Week: Getaway Café’s Maple Bacon Glazed French Toast
To try and decide each week where and what to eat around the basin can be a challenge — there are so many amazing choices. In this feature we’ll dive into dishes that will surely satisfy those hunger pangs and leave you wondering where to go next.
If you’ve ever woke up in the morning with a hankering for a maple bacon donut and French toast for breakfast, but couldn’t decide which option to go with (because both would obviously go against that diet you’ve worked so hard on), then this week’s feature is for you.
Yes, French toast is generally considered a breakfast item, but this dish teeters between breakfast and dessert, so if your taste buds get confused, don’t worry. The dish gives you a nice balance of sweet and savory. The thick-sliced bread is freshly delivered from Truckee Sourdough Company and gets a nice caramelized egg coating on the griddle before getting smothered in their organic house made maple glaze.
The glaze comes from a base of coconut milk. The maple tastes as if someone had a direct tap from a thousand year old tree in the Canadian forest, and when combined with the coconut milk, you get that sweet and savory balance rooted in earthiness that pairs insanely well together.
Then comes the salty. Four strips (yes four!) of bacon are diced and added to the top of the dish capping off a trifecta of flavor that not only provides textures of chewy, gooey, and crispy, but an alarm for your taste buds to wake up to in the morning.
Actually, because Getaway serves breakfast and lunch all day, you might opt for this during the middle of the day. If you do, I’d still suggest adding in a cup of coffee because after taking down this mound of food, you might want to set aside some time for a nap.
The Getaway Café is located at 3140 Highway 50 in Meyers. For complete menu offering and general information visit them online at tahoegetawaycafe.com or reach them via phone at 530-577-5132.
