This Banana Pecan French Toast recipe is made with Brioche bread and a sweet and nutty topping made with butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, Bourbon, sliced bananas, and pecans. You will never want French Toast any other way.
Can you believe there was a time in my life where I didn’t like French Toast…at all! I couldn’t stand it. In my house, french toast was made with thin pieces of white bread, dipped in heavy egg batter, and fried in already burnt butter (sorry mom). Of course, I wouldn’t like french toast with an introduction like that, right? I thought it was absolutely disgusting and way too “eggy”.
Now that I am older I have found a great appreciation for the wonderful dish and even prefer french toast over pancakes most days. What I find very interesting about french toast is its versatility. You can get really creative with a french toast by creating different toppings and even coat the toast with corn flakes or chopped almonds and it will take your french toast to a new level. Another thing that is important to french toast is the bread. Don’t you dare use Wonderbread for your french toast! Don’t do that! Get an uncut loaf of country white bread and cut the bread into thick slices. You can buy Thick Toast at Kroger. Or, you can use buttery brioche bread. But whatever you do, just don’t use thin pieces of sandwich bread.
