Step-by-Step

  1. For the cinnamon toast croutons: preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lay the bread cubes out on a rimmed baking sheet. Mix the melted butter, sugar, cinnamon and salt together and drizzle over the bread cubes. Toss and bake for 5 - 10 minutes until toasted.
  2. For the maple vinaigrette: whisk all the ingredients together until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Cook and drain the bacon.
  4. Prepare the eggs to your liking--scrambled, poached, sunny-side-up.
  5. Prepare each salad plate with a heaping cup of baby spinach, topped with cinnamon toast croutons, candied nuts, dried cherries, and crumbled bacon. Then top each with 1-2 eggs and drizzle with maple vinaigrette.
