Breakfast Banana French Toast

Be careful with this one, it can be a bit slippery and fragile, but it's really worth it in the end!


  • 2 slices of toast-cut sliced bread
  • butter or non-dairy spread (margarine)
  • 1 regular banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • golden or maple syrup


  1. Lay the slices of bread out on a plate and butter one side of them. Now turn them over.
  2. Slice the banana into pieces about 1 cm thick and arrange these to cover one piece of the bread. There will be some slices left over. Put these slices aside to use later.
  3. Place the other piece of bread on top of the first one so that the buttered side is on top. Now you will have a banana sandwich but the butter will be on the outside.
  4. Press the sandwich together slightly with a wide spatula.
  5. Beat the egg and milk together in a mixing bowl and then pour into a shallow dish.
  6. Pick up the sandwich and place it into the egg mixture.
  7. Wait for about 1 minute, and then carefully turn the sandwich over in the mixture.
  8. Wait one more minute. (The bread should soak up most of the egg mixture)
  9. Take a frying pan that is big enough for your sandwich and place it on a medium heat.
  10. Very gently, using your wide spatula lift the sandwich into the hot pan.
  11. Cook for a few minutes until golden brown on one side.
  12. Using the spatula again, turn the sandwich over and cook until that side is also golden brown. The sandwich should feel firm when pressed lightly.
  13. Turn off the heat and remove the sandwich to a breadboard.
  14. Cut in half diagonally and place on your serving plate.
  15. Top with the extra banana slices you put aside earlier and drizzle with golden or maple syrup.

For something different, try a mixture of sugar and cinnamon instead of the syrup.
