This was fantastic!!! Bananas and french toast are definitely friends. 🙂 So what about Brandy and Bananas? There is nothing better than pairing liquor with sweet ingredients. The Frat days are over so let’s get in the kitchen and dump our bourbon into our food!!
Serving Size 2 – What you’ll need
1 Loaf french bread (thinly sliced on a diagonal)
1 teaspoon vanilla
freshly grated nutmeg
1 banana sliced
1-1/2 teaspoon brandy (or bourbon/rum)
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
2 tablespoon of butter
Grade A or B Maple Syrup (Please invest!)
Powdered Sugar (Optional but always fun for topping french toast)
In a bowl beat your eggs together. If you have cream or milk on hand feel free to add a few tablespoons. Next, grate in the nutmeg, add the cinnamon and vanilla extract (That’s my secret.) 😉
In a fry pan add in a tablespoon of butter. Make sure it coats the pan evenly on medium heat. Dip your pieces of bread in the egg batter letting any excess fall off. Carefully place in the pan one by one.
Let the bread cook for 2-3 minutes, then flip.
Cook for another minute or so on the other side, turning down the heat to low so the butter doesn’t burn.
In a small fry pan add in the other tablespoon of butter with 1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar and stir. Toss in your banana slices covering in the sauce. Add in the brandy and flip the bananas until golden brown.
Get ready for your next batch of french toast, adding some more butter to the pan.
Once finished serve with the bananas on top. Pour over REAL maple syrup, trust me. It will be worth the money and a little goes a long way 😉
I love brandy with my bananas 😉 The alcohol burns off, but the flavor is OH SO GOOD!
Happy Sunday Breakfast!!
