Bananas Foster French Toast
4 thick slices of brioche bread
2 oz. brown sugar
1 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. cinnamon
French toast batter (may have extra batter)
6 whole eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup heavy cream
½ cup whole milk
½ cup sugar
¼ cup orange juice
2 tbsp. ground cinnamon
In a skillet, put 2 tablespoons butter slowly melting on low heat. Meanwhile, dip the brioche in the French toast batter and let sit for a minute.
Turn heat to medium and place brioche in a skillet. When one side turns golden brown, flip and repeat. Once fully cooked, cut in half and place on a plate.
In a small skillet add butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and sliced bananas. Cook for two minutes and pour on top of French toast. Drizzle with caramel and top with whipped cream as desired. Serves two.
