So this was our breakfast this lovely Sunday morning.
Eggnog soaked banana bread french toast.
Since all three of those things aren’t fattening enough on their own I decided it would be a brilliant idea to combine them all together into one big fat dish! AND then top it off with some buttery Macadamia nuts and sugary cereal! That’s just how we roll here. It was finished off with maple syrup too, of course. I mean, we’ve come this far, right? My husband loved it and I loved the warm flavors combined with all the different textures going on here. So, so, decadently good. I can’t not share the love.
Eggnog Banana Bread French Toast
-2 thick slices banana-nut bread
-1/2 Cup Eggnog (I used Trader Joe’s Light Eggnog)
-1/4 Cup roughly chopped Macadamia nuts
-1/4 Vanilla Chex cereal
First, make your custard base by mixing up the eggnog, eggs and cinnamon with a whisk. If your banana bread is fresh toast it up a little bit so it’ll really absorb that eggnoggy goodness. Heat up your griddle pan while the bread toasts. Dunk each slice of bread into the eggnog mixture and swirl it around until it soaks up as much liquid as it can. I poked it with a fork (I poked it like crazy) to really get the mixture in there. Then place the slice on the griddle pan to cook. I cooked mine for around three minutes per side.
Once the slices are cooked, put them on your plate and crumble up your Vanilla Chex over the top. Then, sprinkle on your Macadamia nut pieces. Finally, dust with a sprinkling of cinnamon and powdered sugar. Serve with maple syrup and ENJOY!
Remember, life is short. Eat Eggnog Banana Bread French Toast.
