I thought of the recipe one morning and served it to my dad...let's just say he licked the plate clean! Serve with maple syrup, peanut butter, or honey...or all three!

Directions

  1. Beat eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar together in a bowl. Place bread into the egg mixture to soak.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled skillet over medium heat and brown the slices of bread on both sides. Heat a smaller lightly oiled skillet over medium-low heat and pour the remaining egg mixture into the skillet. Allow the eggs to set in the skillet for 1 to 2 minutes, then continue to cook and stir eggs until scrambled.
  3. Place 1 slice of toast onto a plate and top with the eggs. Layer the slices of banana over the eggs, then place the second slice of toast on top to make a sandwich.

I didn't add the sugar, as I had ripe bananas and felt the sugar would make it too sweet and I added a 1/4 c. of milk because it was a little too thick to dip. I mushed the banana and spread it on the bread before I dipped it in the egg wash, so the bananas wouldn't fall out when my kids ate them. I had small slices sandwich bread, so one large banana was sufficient for two french toast sandwiches. I think I might add a little nutmeg next time and cut back on the cinnamon.

I put thin slices of banana on a piece of bread, leaving a half-inch free around the edge which I brushed with the egg mix before topping with the second piece of bread. I used a fork to seal the edges from both sides, then coated and put in the pan. Did not cook remaining egg mix but instead made 2 stuffed toasts (one for me, one for hubby). Also added some cardamom because I love it. Yummy breakfast!

Used Apriva sugar instead of white sugar, adding 1/2 the amount of the white stuff. After frying toast, it was not as sweet as I expected it to be. As Lambchop's Mom suggested, I added a pinch of nutmeg plus 1/4 cup of milk because egg wash was too thick. Next time, I'll try white sugar since there is not much in the recipe. A lover of extra crunchy peanut butter I spread it among the scrambled eggs (on 2nd try, I'll spread on toast first then add eggs and thinly sliced bananas). Not being fond of pancake syrup (too sweet for me), I drizzled homemade strawberry syrup on and topped with a few sliced strawberries. I didn't lick plate clean like Stevie's dad did, so will try making again and hope for better results.
