Banana French Toast Recipe

Technically, this recipe serves 6, but we loved it so much, we finished all 6 servings in one day, just between the two of us, seriously. To make the French Toast, start with the banana sauce, which is so simple, but so good! You will need bananas, brown sugar (we used dark brown sugar)  a whole stick of butter and just a touch of water.     People to feed: Family 6 Preparation Time: 10 mins Cooking Time: 20 mins   Ingredients 4 ounces (1 stick unsalted butter) 1/2 cup (packed) dark brown sugar 2 tablespoons water 4 bananas, peeled and cut diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slicesFrench toast: 3 large whole eggs 3 large egg yolks 1/2 cup whole milk 1/4 cup whipping cream 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 6 slices (3/4-inch thick) brioche or challah bread 3 tablespoons (about) unsalted butter Whipped cream (optional)   Cooking Procedure Make the banana sauce: Melt the butter in a large stainless-steel skillet with a lid over medium heat.

Add more butter as needed for each batch. To serve, add the banana slices to the sauce and cook until the bananas are almost tender, tossing gently, about 3 minutes. Transfer the French toast to plates. Top each with the banana sauce and whipped cream, if desired. Banana sauce ingredients We chose a pan with a lid then melted the butter over medium heat.
