Peanut Butter Bananas Foster French Toast

We eat breakfast for dinner quite often. But do know you what's even better than that?  Brunch!  Brunch means you get to eat tasty breakfasty items in the morning but get to sleep in later than usual.

  The kids had a sleepover with several of their friends.  We all stayed up way too late and enjoyed sleeping in. I love to cook for a larger group so when Eggland's Best invited me to try their eggs again and host a brunch, I knew that this was the perfect time to do it.

Did you know that all eggs are not created equal? When compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs contain:
· 10 times more vitamin E
· Double the amount of omega-3’s
· Twice the amount of vitamin D
· 3 times more vitamin B12
· 25% less saturated fat
I notice a difference when I use Egglands Best eggs.  They seem to cook up fluffier and just taste better.  Check out Egglands Best website or their facebook page for delicious recipes.

 My kids declared this the best french toast they ever had.  They syrup is truly scrumptious!  I used chunky peanut butter so the texture wasn't as pretty but I received no complaints.  We also enjoyed fresh fruit and a ham, egg and potato casserole that I will share in a couple of days. 

Peanut Butter Bananas Foster French Toast
Adapted from Picky Palate

4 large eggs
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
6-8 slices bread (cinnamon bread or French)
1 cup pure maple syrup
3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla or rum extract
1/4 cup heavy cream
2-3 cups sliced bananas depending on how many you like

1. Preheat large skillet over medium heat.
2. Place eggs, cream brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla into a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. One at a time, dip each slice of bread, both sides into egg mixture. I used both French bread and cinnamon bread. Add a tablespoon of butter into hot skillet to melt, swirling pan. Add egg dipped bread slice to skillet, cooking 1-2 minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer cooked piece of toast to a clean plate and repeat until all bread has been used.
3. Place maple syrup and peanut butter into a skillet over medium heat. Stir to melt peanut butter into syrup. Stir in vanilla then heavy cream. Let mixture bubble for about 5 minutes, stirring often to thicken. Add sliced bananas and cook for 1 minute. Pour peanut butter syrup sauce and bananas over warm French toast. Serve immediately.
Makes 6-8 servings
