feeling frenchy

Well, french toast, anyway. I love french toast. More than waffles. More than pancakes. More than most breakfast foods. But I hardly ever make/eat it because, as many of you know, I'm a coffee for breakfast girl most of the time.

We had some visitors in town this weekend, so I made an attempt. I'm not sure it's anything special more than what is normal, but it tasted pretty good - and with bananas, so healthy, right?

I'm putting down what I made (which was too much for just a few people) so feel free to cut in half accordingly.

Banana-stuffed French Toast
6 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
4 Tbsp. milk
Loaf of french bread

Mix eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and milk in a medium bowl; whisk well. Cut thick pieces of french bread (about 1.5 inches?) and cut a slit into the side of the bread. Stuff sliced bananas into the slit. Dip bread into the egg mixture, coating well, and fry in a buttered pan until golden brown on each side. Serve with syrup - powdered sugar is good, too.

Nothing fancy - but I'm open to hearing your french toast recipes for something a little different. I might try something like this next time... and maybe try a different fruit. I know. I live on the edge - stand back. :)


  1. Brenda, How about the wonderful french toast we had at the Hotel at Dorchester a while back. That was delish. MOM

  2. I made some once that had peanut butter and jelly in the middle. Mix 1 part cream cheese with 2 parts creamy peanut butter and use whichever jelly is your fav. Spread on two thinner slices of french bread, dip in egg/milk mixture and fry in a pan. That was some goooood business! Your banana one sounds delish too!
