PB & B French Toast

This is a delicious and easy dish to wow the family for breakfast.

Serves: 4

Sliced Bread, 1/2” thick 8 slices *see notes

Banana , sliced 1/4” thick 3 ea

Brown Sugar 4 Tbl

Butter, unsalted 4 Tbl + extra for grilling toast

Kosher Salt 1/4 tsp

Cinnamon 1/2 tsp

Peanut Butter, creamy as needed

Chocolate Sauce as needed

Custard

Milk 1 1/2 c

Brown Sugar 1/3 c

Eggs 2

Cinnamon 1/4 tsp

Vanilla 2 tsp

Salt 1/4 tsp

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the custard. Dip your bread into the custard and allow to soak for about 10 seconds, then place on a plate and repeat until all the bread is done.
  2. In a non-stick, heat up a bit of butter over a medium high heat until butter is simmering.  Once the butter is simmering, place 2 slices of french toast into the pan and allow to cook for 2 minutes on each side or until a nice golden brown color.  When the french toast is ready, place on a cutting board and cook the rest of the slices.  When all the french toast is finish, spread the peanut butter on 4 of the slices and sandwich with the other 4.  Rest on the cutting board until you start your bananas, keep the pan over a low heat to keep the pan hot.
  3. In a large skillet pan, over a medium high heat, melt 4 Tbl of butter and add the brown sugar, cinnamon and salt.  Then add the sliced bananas.  Toss the bananas until fully coated with the butter sauce and allow to cook for about 2 minutes until the bananas begin to soften.  Remove from heat.
  4. Place your French Toast sandwiches back into the hot pan for about a minute on each side to heat back up, then top with the banana topping and chocolate sauce to serve.

*Chef’s Notes: When deciding on the type of bread to use either purchase a full size loaf of any bread you choose and slice yourself, making sure the crust is thin and a bit soft or purchase a good quality white bread that has some body to it, such as an artisan bread.
