Almond Butter-Banana Stuffed French Toast

I have been hearing a lot about Glamping lately. It’s camping, only better! So the urge to “glamp” up a dish got me thinking. How can you take one of my favorite breakfasts, classic French toast, and make it even better? You stuff it with almond butter and bananas! The result is nutty, sweet, and elevated. Almond butter-banana stuffed French toast is what glamping dreams are made of! It’s also my latest pop culture food mashup!

The Bread

French Toast begins with the bread. And keep I mind, your bread choice is very important! First, you must use day old bread. Second, your day old bread needs to be French, Italian, any good sturdy bread that can hold up to being soaked and flipped. Third, you need to slice I yourself. And you want thick slices. Take your bread and lay it in a 9 x 13 baking dish.

The Custard

This custard is going to coat, infuse, and emphatically enhance this Almond Butter-Banana French Toast. And here’s how you make it! Start with your eggs, sugar, and spices. Whisk it all up.

Then add a combination of heavy cream and whole milk.

It smells so good right about now that you will be getting hungry and excited! Pour the mixture over your bread.

After two minutes, flip the bread.

Glamping It Up!

In a hot pan or griddle, get a pat of butter melting.

Then add your soaked bread and heat that delicious sizzle!

Wait about 3 minutes then flip.

Once the French Toast is ready, remove the slices to a pan. Open faced, spread almond butter on each slice.

Banana stuffed French toast

Then layer up banana slices.
