French Toast with Bananas Foster Sauce

Bananas. Butter. Sugar. What a great way to start the day. What a great way to end the week.

We had some challah bread that was drying out. I recovering French toast addict. In college French toast was my favorite breakfast. At home we would get homemade cinnamon swirl bread and make mountains of French toast. The last few years though I switched focus to pancakes.

This breakfast might have just put me into a relapse.

Sweet and filling I was full all morning.

  6. Wow... this is such a funny coincidence. I was making french toast today for my hubby's bday and we (kids and I) were going to make a banana topping for it. :) I decided to do something a little different... but I now see I should have done this because it looks amazing. What a fantastic breakfast. :)

  7. You had me at bananas foster! And then you really won me over with the mention of french toast and butter! :)

  8. I love bananas foster (just did a bundt cake with it). Back in my clubbing days, we'd always stop for breakfast (at 3:00 in the morning!) at a place that served bananas foster pancakes. Yum! Jealous of that H&D gift. :)
