Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 8 thick slices of whole grain bread (day-old bread works well)
  • 2 ripe bananas

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 170 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the eggs, milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and cinnamon.
  • In a medium skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Turn the heat down to medium low.
  • Dip two pieces of bread (one at a time) into the egg mixture. Let them soak for several seconds so they gets saturated.
  • Carefully transfer the bread to the skillet. Cook the bread over medium heat on one side for about two minutes, then flip both pieces.
  • Place half a banana, thinly sliced, on top of one piece of bread. Place the other slice on top, cooked side down (touching the bananas). Let the sandwich cook for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is well browned. Flip the stack and cook on the other side for 2 minutes. Remove the French toast from the pan and place it in a covered dish in the oven to keep it warm.
  • Repeat with the remaining slices of bread. As each sandwich is cooked, place it in the covered dish in the warm oven so everyone can eat together.
  • Serve warm with a little maple syrup or berry sauce.
