Banana Foster French Toast

My son had this French Toast at a restaurant and paid A LOT for it. I am thinking this is simple, I should just make this. So here it is for you to enjoy, maybe on Christmas Morning!

Banana Foster French Toast

(Serves 4 – 2 slices each)

6 large eggs

1/2 Cup Milk or Half and Half

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 Cup butter

8-10 slices of your favorite bread


1/2 Cup Butter

2/3 cup Brown Sugar, packed

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 Cup heavy cream or half and half or milk

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 Cup pecans, chopped

2 large firm bananas, cut into slices about ½ inch wide

2 teaspoon RUM extract or vanilla extract or 3 Tablespoon of Dark Rum

In a large shallow bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, sugar, cinnamon. Whisk well.

In a very large sauté pan or griddle melt butter over medium heat. Add a slice of bread to the egg mixture, turning over to the other side, and then place onto the heated grill. Cook on each side until well browned.


In a medium saucepan or frying pan, over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the brown sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add the cinnamon, cream, and salt. Stir until heated and combined. Add the banana slices and heat until bananas are warmed through. Add the pecans and the rum extract. Serve over the French Toast.

My husband loves Swiss Bread (of course) or Brioche Bread or Texas Toast.

Only use bananas that are underripe and firm, bananas with “spots” tend to disappear into the sauce.

To make Gluten Free use Gluten Free Bread and cook yours first.

To make Dairy Free use Dairy Free “Butter” and Oak Milk worked amazingly for us.

If you like the French Toast softer, soak the bread for about 2 minutes on each side.

This is also an amazing topping for ice cream.

You can half this recipe too
