Since it’s Saturday, I was craving some serious brunch food. Since we’re currently broke, I decided to cook those brunch favorites myself. On the menu for this morning: french toast! I’ve said this before…but I love breakfast foods. Any breakfast food. French toast is pretty much amazing. If I could eat it everyday, I would.
I wanted to try something a little different with the french toast this morning. Instead of slicing up bananas to go on top, I decided to grill them. Grilled bananas almost remind me of plantains, which I love! Cliff and I have tried to fry plantains Cuban style and they turned out pretty good. We went to Miami a few years ago and that’s where I discovered plantains. Grilled bananas can’t quite compete, but close enough.
I cooked the french toast the standard way. I used two slices of wheat bread and soaked them in a mix of eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and skim milk (I used 3 eggs, about a teaspoon of vanilla, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, and a splash of milk).
Next, I sliced the bananas down the middle, then in half.
Once the french toast was done cooking, I added the bananas to the skillet and cooked for just a couple minutes on both sides.
I basically cooked them until they had nice grill marks on both sides.
Breakfast was served! I just added some bananas to my toast and viola: French toast with grilled bananas! Good stuff.
I served up some Golden French Toast coffee with it (thought that was fitting) and of course, added some peanut butter on top!
Great brunch on a beautiful Saturday morning! We’ve been pretty productive so far…we also made peanut butter banana ice cream (which is AMAZING). I’ll post more on that later.
I’m off on a short run to try my Vibrams. Happy Saturday!
