Step Two:
Put the cast iron skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add oil and butter.

Step Three:
Dip the two slices of bread into the egg mixture. The bread should soak most of the mixture up.

Step Four:
Please the bread in the pan side-by-side. Cook for 90-seconds, until golden brown, and flip.

Step Five:
Add the bacon onto one of the slices of French toast and top it with the sharp cheddar cheese.

Step Six:
Once both slices are cooked, place the second slice of toast on top of the toast with the bacon and cheese to create a sandwich.

Step Seven:
Transfer your French toast from the cast iron skillet to a plate. Garnish with berries and maple syrup.
