Tonight my wonderful husband is deep in baseball. It is fantasy baseball draft night. I won’t see him till at least bed time. So after walking the dog, I needed to throw something together for dinner. I remembered my foodie pen pal sent some delicious maple syrup from Buffalo NY. I decided that I would put my homemade bread to work
Banana pecan French toast
2 slices of bread
1/2 cup of milk
Splash of vanilla and cinnamon
1 banana sliced
Pecan pieces, about a table spoon or so
1 tbs of sugar
Powdered sugar and or maple syrup for topping
In a shallow bowl, mix together the egg, milk, vanilla and cinnamon
Place one piece of bread in the mixture, soak it up a little, flip and place in oil sprayed or non stick skillet. Repeat with the other slice.
While this is cooking, in a small skillet, place a tbsp of butter, the sliced bananas, pecans and regular sugar. Cook on med heat until bananas soften and sugar dissolves. You can add the maple syrup directly to the syrup here if you want or just drizzle it on later. Don’t forget to flip your toast
After the bread has turned golden brown, plate. Top with banana pecan syrup and powdered sugar if desired.
