Bananas Foster French Toast

 

This picture may not look like it but this bananas foster french toast was absolutely delicious! I hate taking pictures of breakfast items. They never look as delicious as they do in person. I need to go to food styling and photography school. 🙁 Sometimes I really just get in the mood for some good french toast, and when that happens it’s always this bananas foster recipe that I turn to. Bananas Foster French Toast was one of the first things my husband cooked for me when we were just friends and hadn’t even started dating yet. It’s delicious!!! I love the brown sugary bananas. It’s all just so yummy for a Saturday or Sunday morning breakfast. I hope you all enjoy!!!

Are Bananas High In Calories?

Bananas are considered to be a low calorie fruit.

One banana has about 105 calories and is high in potassium and fiber.

How Do You Keep Bananas From Ripening Too Fast?

To keep bananas from ripening too fast, wrap the stem end in plastic wrap.

Once a banana is perfectly ripe, you can keep it in the refrigerator to keep it from getting over-ripe.

Can French Toast Be Frozen?

Once the French toast is completely cool, stack the pieces separated with parchment or wax paper.

Place the stack of French toast in a heavy duty freezer bag and freeze.

French Toast will keep for up to 2 months in the freezer.

  • Sounds delish!
    By the way, my new site is up now: http://www.dollhousecakes.com Let me know if you'd still like to order some for that baby shower (I know it's been a while, so that might have already come and gone) 🙂
