This is a favorite of Mrs Hardings, and has become one of mine! She found it in NY and boy am I glad she did! This made an awesome breakfast for dinner! (With a little sausage of course).
Caramelized Banana French Toast
Makes 4 Toasts
4 slices of good quality bread (I used a couple day old french bread)
3 eggs
2 tablespoons whole milk
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon sugar
dash salt
2 bananas, peeled and sliced
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons brown sugar
strawberries, sliced
whipped cream
maple syrup

Heat two separate skillets to medium heat.
Slice the bread about an inch thick. In a shallow dish, whisk eggs, milk, cinnamon, white sugar and salt. Dip the slices of bread in egg mixture and turn to coat. Cook in greased skillet till nicely browned and crisp on both sides.
Meanwhile, melt the butter and brown sugar in the other skillet, and cook banana slices in sugar mixture to caramelize, about 3-4 minutes on each side.
Arrange toast on plate, and pour caramelized bananas and extra sauce on top. Top with more syrup, fresh whipped cream, and sliced strawberries on top.
