Banana Bread French Toast

Published December 22, 2012 by jenmatteson

Do you ever come up with a great idea, only to realize that someone else has already thought of it?  I really, really hate when that happens.  And that is what happened to me when I thought I was so innovative thinking of making French toast out of my banana bread.  But, the good news is that it was a wonderful idea.

I couldn’t tell you the last time that I made, or even, ate French toast; Nate doesn’t like it so much.  But, I had a little banana bread left over, and this super innovative idea (again, or so I thought).  If you know how to make French toast, this will be a cinch.  Use homemade or store-bought banana bread, and you’ll be set to go!

1 egg
1/3 cup skim milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1. In a shallow dish, beat egg with milk, cinnamon and vanilla.  Spray skillet or griddle with cooking spray and heat over medium-heat.  One at a time, dip banana bread slices in egg mixture, turning over to coat.  Place in heated pan and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side, until beginning to brown and crisp.  Serve and top with banana slices and/or maple syrup as desired.
