Start your day with a delicious Bananas Foster French toast breakfast originally created by Chef Chris Valdes.

Ingredients

For the Bananas Foster:

  • 2 whole bananas, sliced in 1/2 inch rounds
  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of bourbon or dark rum

For the French toast:

  • 1 whole bread loaf, sliced in 1-inch-thick slices
  • 2 cups of whole milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • Powdered sugar

Preparation

For the Bananas Foster:   

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add butter and brown sugar and cook for about 4 min until butter has melted and mixed with the brown sugar.
  3. Add the sliced bananas and cook until the bananas are soft and lightly cooked, about 3 minutes.
  4. Carefully add the bourbon or rum and flambé or cook for a few extra minutes to allow alcohol to evaporate.
 

For French Toast:

  1. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and cinnamon.
  2. Melt butter in a small pan with medium heat.
  3. Dip each slice of toast one at a time into the eggs mixture for about 3 seconds per side and place in the hot non-stick pan.
  4. Cook on medium heat until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip and repeat.
  5. Place reserved Bananas Foster on top of the French toast and top with desired toppings like powdered sugar.
 

Topping Ideas: Condensed milk, dulce de leche, whipped cream, chocolate syrup, white chocolate shavings, chocolate shavings, chopped strawberries, or walnuts.
