I don't write many recipes, mostly because I'm a bit lazy. I like simple things. Things with very few ingredients and very little prep. If you're like me, maybe you'll like these, too.
I probably already did a post on French toast, but because this is a bit different, instead of adding to the original, I decided to make this its own post.
Lately most mornings I have been having toast for breakfast. With peanut butter and bananas. And it’s Super Tasty! So this is a peanut butter and banana stuffed French toast.
This amount in this recipe depend on how many you want to make.
Bread (I used what I had on hand, but French bread is ideal, or that nice thick D’italiano bread)
Chocolate hazelnut spread
In a bowl, put your egg, a tsp of sugar, milk, a couple shakes of cinnamon, salt and pepper and a splash of vanilla. (I made one sandwich and with one egg, there was still some left over) Combine these ingredients.
Spread the peanut butter on your bread. (You can spread chocolate hazelnut spread on one slice and peanut butter on the other) Once the bread is spread to your liking, heat up your nonstick frying pan. Slice your banana. Fill one slice of bread with your banana slices and then drizzle with honey. Put your two slices together to make a sandwich. Dip your sandwich in the egg mixture, coating both sides, and put it in the frying pan. A couple minutes in either side.
When it’s done, transfer to plate.
In the same frying pan, mix together honey and water, and add the remaining slices of banana. Don’t overcook the banana.
Before all the liquid cooks away, pour this over your French toast. If you wish, you can then sprinkle cinnamon or powered sugar over the top.
And voila! You’re done! So yummy!
Simple. Good. Comfort food. What do you need?
Bread. Butter. Cheese slices.
I throw a little butter in a non-stick frying pan, melt it. You can use any kind of bread you like, I used thicker bread here. I spread just a little butter in the centre of a slice, put a slice of cheese on it, another smear of butter, another cheese slice, another smear of butter and then a slice of bread. Then I grease the whole top piece of bread with butter. I prefer those fake, processed cheese slices because it makes the sandwich nice and gooey. My husband prefers real cheese slices. Use what you like. He also finds two slices of processed cheese are too much for him.
Once the butter in the pan is melted, put the sandwich in with the buttered side up. Keep the heat on medium high. When toasted to preference, carefully flip it over.
I put the little bit of butter in between each layer because I find it helps hold everything together a bit better until all the cheese is melted. I grease on side of the sandwich because the other side will soak up all of the butter in the pan before you get to flip it over.
If you like, you can put tomato or meat in your sandwich.
Eat a couple or just pair one with some tomato soup. Enjoy!
