When I first visited Whistler, Canada a couple of years ago, I was looking through some menus of the best breakfast spots in the village. Just outside the village was a place called Wild Wood Pacific Bistro. They had a menu item called “Banana Bread French Toast.” Say what?! If your mouth doesn’t water at the sound of that, well, I would be shocked. After seeing that item on the menu I went home and made it immediately for my family for breakfast on New Year’s morning (I never actually tried Wild Wood’s banana bread French toast until very recently!). It’s so incredibly easy and simple to make, and it’s one of my favorite ways to eat banana bread!
Ingredients: - 1 loaf banana bread (refer to Banana Bread post for recipe) - 2 or 3 eggs - 1/2 cup milk - 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (my secret ingredient!)
Cut the banana loaf into decent slices. Whisk the milk, vanilla, and eggs together. One by one, coat both sides of each slice of banana bread with the egg mixture and set aside. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Use 1 tablespoon butter or cooking spray to prevent the slices from sticking to the pan or burning. Cook each slice by 1 minute on each side. Serve warm with butter. It pairs perfectly with a delicious berry salad of strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries!
