Yeah, I like fashion but I also like french toast… a lot.
Normal french toast is good but, as I discovered this morning, stuffed french toast is even better. I’d never tried it before but am now officially hooked. This version is made with a banana nut honey filling but I think a berry mixture might even be better and pack a punchier flavor. I got this recipe from Jamie Oliver (my all time favorite) but I think his portions were a little off – it claims to be for 2 servings but I was left with tons so I’ve amended his ingredients a bit.
2 bananas (peeled and sliced), 50 grams pecan nuts (chopped), 1 tablespoon honey, 4 slices of bread, 2 eggs, half a cup of milk, butter and icing sugar.
Mix the bananas, pecan nuts and honey in a bowl. Spoon out the mixture onto 2 slices of the bread, leaving a slight space around the edges. Top with the other piece of bread – to make a sandwich. Heat a frying pan over a moderate heat. Mix the eggs and milk into a bowl – pour onto a small plate. Dip both sides of the banana sandwiches in the mixture – don’t get the middle wet. Melt the butter in the frying pan. Fry each sandwich until golden brown. Sprinkle with icing sugar (really that’s just for looks).
Serve with orange juice, strong coffee and maple syrup for a killer combo.
