Good morning everyone!! Well we are getting a nice base going, and now it’s time to move to brunch recipes. I’ll probably do 4-5 recipes and then I’m going to start mixing it up daily. The first one I’m going to do will be a favorite with your kids. Peanut Butter and Banana French toast, this was a big favorite in Chicago, pure decadence. And is easy to make it can also can be made ahead of time. As always enjoy, and just have fun!
Peanut Butter and Banana stuffed French Toast
Brioche- 2 loaves (sliced, about 1 inch thick; 10 slices)
Bananas- 3 (slice, about ¼ inch thick)
Peanut Butter- about ¾ jars
Honey- 4 tablespoons
Maple Syrup- you be the judge
Method to the Madness
1) Lay the sliced Brioche out on a counter; spread the peanut butter on half of the slices, and spread the banana slices on the other half. Drizzle the honey on the slices with the bananas. Make sandwiches.
2) In a large sauté pan or a griddle melt butter. Dunk the sandwiches into French toast batter, cook until golden brown on both sides. When they are done cooking slice the sandwiches in half, and layer one on top of another on a plate. Add a drizzle of maple syrup and garnish with a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
3) ENJOY. I serve this with Bacon or sausage patties. The sweet and salty combo can’t be wrong.
French toast Batter
Cinnamon- 2 teaspoons
Powdered Sugar- 1 tablespoon
Triple Sec- 2 tablespoons (optional)
Heavy Cream- ¼ cup
Half & Half- 3 tablespoons
Vanilla Extract- 1 tablespoons
1) Mix all ingredients together well. Ready for service now or chill until ready and remix.
