Dining Out At Home Two:Breakfast

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day;however many of us cut it out, due to our busy lives.So to fix that issue Dining Out At Home Two has shared some special meals that you can easily make on your own that everyone will enjoy.This chapter includes delicious homemade recipes for waffles,omelets,pancakes and even for the popular egg McMuffin.So you better get ready to reintroduce breakfast in your morning because I want you to get your energy back and enjoy a healthy meal.

So for me,I chose to make the unique and creative Banana Bread French Toast that is inspired by the successful IHOP Restaurant.This meal is as simple as making any french toast;however this time its made with your favorite homemade banana bread to create a new flavor and texture.This recipe is very quick to make and the directions are simple to follow.There is tons of room for adaption and creativity that you can easily change the toppings or double the recipe.I just love having this opportunity in recipes to easily change and bring my own ideas to the table.

So now we all want to know how this unique french toast tastes? Right? Well when I took my first bite I was really surprised how moist and fluffy the bread was.It was still crisp on the outside as french toast should be;however it was completely different to any french toast I have experienced. The texture was heavy,chewy and very moist, along with having a buttery, banana flavor.It was also quite sweet and this kind of french toast soaks up the topping flavors very quickly creating a very aromatic meal.Its definitely a french toast you have to try for yourself and see exactly what I mean for yourself.Overall,I give this recipe and flavor experience a two thumbs up.

So now I challenge you to make yourself breakfast tomorrow or at least this weekend. Or right now you can share and let me know what your favorite go to breakfast meal is? Comment below or share on my Facebook page.I would love to hear about your unique and simple meals for breakfast.

The Recipe

Banana Bread French Toast
Adapted By Dining Out At Home Two
Makes 2 servings or double ingredients for 4 servings

2 large eggs
2 tbsp milk
4 slices banana bread
1 banana,sliced
4 tsp butter
4 tbsp caramel sauce
Whipped cream
Freshly grated nutmeg (optional)

In a medium bowl,I whisked the eggs and milk together.

Then heated my nonstick skillet over medium heat and added 1 tsp of butter for each slice of banana bread being cooked.

I dipped the banana slice in the egg mixture and coated both sides evenly.

Then I placed the slice on the skillet and cook it for about 1 minute each side,until browned and the egg was fully cooked.

Then I plated my french toast with slices of bananas, drizzle of butter syrup and a sprinkle of nutmeg to serve.

IHOP Version: Bananas,caramel sauce,whipped cream and freshly grated nutmeg.
My Version:Bananas,butter syrup and nutmeg.
