Banana Caramel French Toast

French toast

Serves 2

2 thick slices of stale(ish) bread

Beat and strain the following and add to a shallow dish:
4 eggs
3-4 tbsp milk
1-2 tsp sugar (Brown sugar is ok)
pinch salt

For frying:

2 tbsp butter

Heat 1 tbsp of butter in pan and if it browns a bit it's ok, it's just more flavour.

Soak your bread flipping so both sides absorb and fry them on medium high flipping, just a few minutes and they're done!

Set french toast aside.

Banana Caramel Sauce:

2 tbsp butter
3-4 tbsp brown sugar

2 bananas sliced in thick slices

pinch of cinnamon (optional)

Wipe out your pan with a paper towel and add the butter and brown sugar on medium high, let it melt then add the banana in a thin layer. Allow to bubble a bit then flip the banana slices over one at a time.

Once the bananas look good pour the sauce over your french toast.

Garnish with whipped cream, optional.

I first saw this recipe on YouTube while watching Diners Drive-ins and Dives, the chef showed the dish made with caramel using butter and cream. I've tried it three times now with varying results but overall it tastes pretty good!
