Ingredients

For the Toast

  • 4 to 6 slices of Texas toast, french bread, or your own favorite type of bread for french toast
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 2 tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

For the Bananas

  • 3 ripe bananas, sliced about 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 of a stick) butter, unsalted
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon of rum extract (optional)
  • Chopped walnuts or pecans for topping

Directions

For the Toast

In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, half and half, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar. Take your bread slices and dip them in the egg mixture. Flip them over to coat the other side and let soak for about a minute. 

Melt the butter in a skillet to grease and coat, and then add the battered slices of toast to the skillet. Let cook for about 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Remove from the skillet and set aside on a serving dish. 

For the Bananas

Then, in a separate saucepan, prepare the bananas foster. Melt the butter in a saucepan and stir in the brown sugar, syrup, and flavoring (if using). Once the sugar has dissolved, carefully add in the bananas and let cook for a couple of minutes while the sauce begins to boil and thicken. Make sure to coat all of the bananas with the sauce. After a couple of minutes, carefully spoon out the bananas and a little of the sauce, and pour them over the french toast.

Bananas Foster Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Bananas Foster Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
