“My favorite 'special' breakfast. On the table in only 15 minutes. I like to use large sndwiches rolls cut into 4 long strips, but any bread works. Amounts given are approximate.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 slices Texas toast thick bread or 3 sandwich buns, cut longwise into quarters
  • 1 egg
  • 12 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 banana, sliced in half twice lengthwise and crosswise


  1. Preheat nonstick skillet to 350, medium high.
  2. In shallow dish, mix egg and milk until well incorporated. Dip bread into egg-milk mixture to coak. For softer french toast, allow to soak until all liquid is absorbed.
  3. Let about 1 teaspoon butter melt in skillet. Cook french toast in butter about 1 min per side, until just golden brown. Is desired, sprinkle with cinnamon before flipping. (If using strips, cook on all four sides.).
  4. Remove french toast to warm plate.
  5. In skillet, combine brown sugar and remaining butter.
  6. Add banana. Cook just enough to coat all sides with bubbling butter/sugar mixture, and carmelize slightly; less than 2 minutes total.
  7. To serve, top french toast with caramelized banana and any of the butter/sugar mixture left in the pan.
