Boy, do I have a treat to share with you! You know how I recently shared about my perfect French toast and then I started telling you all about my favorite banana bread? Well, in this recipe, those two become one dish of fabulousness.

It sort of happened by accident. I’d woke up thinking of French toast and then realized we were completely, and I mean completely, out of bread in our house! That never happens! ACK!

Having been at the hospital with Mama for a while, we were pretty much low on everything. But, thankfully, I did have a loaf of banana bread in the freezer, plenty of eggs from the hens, and the other ingredients needed to pull off a make-do sort of French toast breakfast on Sunday morning.

Oh my goodness. That make-do quickly became a must-do with just one bite. I’ll admit they aren’t as pretty as French toast made with a big, beautiful piece of challah, brioche, or even sandwich bread, but y’all, if you enjoy banana bread you need to make this soon! I promise you’ll love it!

  1. I am looking forward to trying this Banana Bread French Toast soon. A friend at work was telling me how his brother, the head chef, had this on their restaurant menu, many years ago… and it was a favorite back then. It definitely sounds delicious.
