Banana breakfast sandwiches – yum! As expressed in a previous post, I’m telling you again that I really love Tyler Florence’s baby food book, Start Fresh, because that’s exactly where I got this recipe!! The book is not just about purees… it also features recipes for the whole family too : ) There was no stopping me from making these banana breakfast sandwiches this past Sunday. They are totally delicious and pretty darn filling to say the least. The only thing I did differently in the recipe was use actual slices from a french loaf (instead of sliced bread) and maple syrup rather than honey. Anyway, if you’re looking for a different way to serve french toast, this is a great recipe!
Banana Breakfast Sandwiches
2 Bananas cut in half lengthwise
4 slices french bread
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter
In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Soak the french bread in the mixture for a few minutes or until the bread is saturated. Melt the butter in a large pan and place two pieces of bread down until slightly browned. Turn over and then arrange bananas over the top. Add the other slice of bread and then flip the sandwiches. Use a heavy pan or a lid to press the sandwiches down to make them more like a panini. Brown each side of the sandwich. When both sides are golden, remove and add more butter, maple syrup and powdered sugar.
