Fancy French Toast with “Bananas Foster” Topping

image

I love cooking for my family.  I love knowing exactly what we are eating and knowing that I am filling our bellies with good food.  I hate doing dishes, but that is a story for another time.

Typically I cook nice balanced healthy meals.  Sometimes I completely throw caution to the wind and make something just because it is delicious.  Fancy French Toast certainly falls under the category of delicious.  It is made with good wholesome ingredients so it is incredibly filling!

First up is the French Toast:

For the bread I used a Challah loaf from Zingermans.  Yes it is pricey, but it is local and absurdly delicious.  For a budget friendly option you could certainly make your own or use another bread.  We don’t make this very often, so the Challah is totally worth the splurge.

French Toast Batter: (may need to be doubled or tripled, I make one “batch” at a time because ingredients are expensive, don’t want any waste!)

2 eggs
2/3 cup milk
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla extract

Cook french toast on a greased skillet over medium heat until cooked through.  Coconut oil is an excellent cooking medium, we love the extra coconut flavor!

“Bananas Foster” Topping:

(Confession: I have never eaten bananas foster, but it sounded like an appropriate name)

In a small skillet I combined 2 Tbsp butter and 2Tbsp honey (raw local honey is the only honey as for as I am concerned).  I let them melt down over medium heat for about 10 minutes until nice and bubbly.  Add a sliced banana or two to your sauce and cook over low-medium heat for a few minutes until the bananas are heated through.  Serve over French Toast to your favorite people!

We paired ours with some sliced strawberries and Grahams Organics sausage.
