Bananas Foster French Toast


1 cup half and half

3 large eggs

2 tablespoons of honey, warmed in the microwave for 20 seconds

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoons salt

8(1/2 inch) slices of day-old or stale country loaf, brioche or challah bread

4 tablespoons butter


1. In a medium-size mixing bowl, whisk together the half-and-half, eggs, honey, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. You may do this the night before.

2. When ready to cook, pour custard mixture into a pie plate set aside. Preheat oven to 350 Convection, or 375 F bake.

3. Dip bread into mixture-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a 10-inch nonstick sauté pan, or a griddle. Place slices of bread in the pan, be careful not to crowd the slices, and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side.

4. Remove from pan and place on the rack in the oven for 5 minutes. Repeat with all 8 slices.

5. Serve immediately with bananas foster topping.
