You only need a few ingredients to start your Saturday or Sunday morning off right with this simple and delicious french toast breakfast, compliments of This Girl!

Breakfast Bread French Toast with Sautéed Brown Butter Bananas

The following serves 2:

  • 2 bananas, peeled and sliced (this is a good recipe for using up ripe bananas)
  • 4 pieces of multigrain raisin walnut breakfast bread (I find these sliced loaves at the bakery in my grocery store and use the largest pieces for this recipe)
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • Good splash of milk (I use skim, but use whatever you have on hand)
  • Vanilla extract
  • Powdered sugar

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and melt about 2 Tbsp butter.

Whisk eggs, a good splash of milk and 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract in a large bowl. Next coat both sides of each piece of bread in the egg-milk mixture. Saute the bread until golden brown on both sides.

Meanwhile, melt the remaining 2 Tbsp butter in another skillet over medium heat. Let the butter continue to cook until golden brown. Then add your sliced bananas, making sure to swirl them around in the pan as they cook for about a minute. Add another 1/4 tsp vanilla extract and cook for another 20-30 seconds. Turn off heat and let stand until the french toast is done.

Dish out two pieces of french toast per plate, top with the sautéed bananas and brown butter sauce (dividing equally between plates). Finish with a sprinkle of powdered sugar on top and enjoy!
