Caramelized French Toast

I have made MAAAANY different types of French Toast and this is SERIOUSLY the best french toast that I have ever had, let alone made! It is the perfect way to start a lazy weekend morning. I will tell you though, this is NOT figure friendly. To caramelize it, you're heating up a layer of sugar. It is VERY sweet, even more so when you add the banana topping. It is a nice occasional treat and a welcome change to some of the ordinary old french toast that's out there.

  • 8 slices of Italian bread (I use the BIG slices and cut them in half)
  • 4-5 eggs
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1-2 Tbsp of brown sugar
  • a splash of milk 
  • 2-3 Tbsp butter
  1. Melt butter in pan on med heat. In medium size bowl mix together the eggs, vanilla, brown sugar and milk.
  2. Slice bread in half and coat in egg mixture. Place in pan and sprinkle top of each with more brown sugar. Cook 3 minutes or so.
  3. Flip your french toast and sprinkle a little more brown sugar on top. Cook another 3-4 minutes. (eyeball it so it doesn't burn but it WILL get a bit dark- that's what you want. its the sugar caramelizing)
  4. Flip once more to melt the sugar. about a minute.

You can eat it like this or you can cook up the banana topping from the pic.

Banana Topping:
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1-2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2-3 bananas
  1. Melt butter in pan over med to med high heat.
  2. Slice up your bananas and drop into melted butter.
  3. Add your brown sugar and toss to combine and coat.
  4. Cook for about 5 minutes til nice and bubbly.
Spoon bananas and "sauce" over French Toast. SOOOOO freaking yummy!
