Banana caramel french toast is so yummy! French toast on its own is a brunch classic, at least for us. The best thing is you can do it either savory or sweet and eat it along with a lot of different toppings.
To make french toast you have to have a good base and that can only mean having a good bread. We actually use our brioche loaf bread and it is better when it is a day or two old since it hardens and it absorbs the egg mixture better.
So, we could say that french toast is breakfast or brunch and it is somewhat about using up ingredients you have around. It is the perfect way to use up bread that is going bad to make sure you don´t throw it away.
This time we bring you a french toast recipe that´s just delicious, with some roasted banana and dulce de leche. The banana ins´t actually roasted since we make it on a regular pan, bu they it sure tastes roasted. We make it with some brown sugar and butter to make it caramelize and it´s a total game changer, so easy and good.
This entire recipe only takes minutes to make. You can have breakfast ready in less than 30 minutes. As for the toppings you could choose whatever you want, or even try it on its own.
One great thing about french toast is without noticing it you are eating protein, carbs and fruit if you add some. The fact is you can make it as healthy as you want by just changing things up a little. You could even make it to be vegan.
French toast is one of those things that can´t be missing from a brunch. Either made at home or somewhere else, there should always be french toast in a brunch and vice versa. Now the recipe here calls for dulce de leche, but you can always use any type of caramel you like and it will be just as great.
