Salted caramel and banana stuffed French Toast
- banana and salted caramel stuffed french toast sandwich
I love French Toast, but stuffed with slices of fried banana and home-made salted caramel sauce takes things to a whole new level.
No this is not healthy food, this is not something you eat every day or very often, but if you wanted a spoiling breakfast or lazy week-end brunch treat that satisfies a sweet tooth this may be an option. I actually used very little salted caramel so the sandwiches were not that sweet. The perfect base onto which you could dust icing sugar or drizzle generously with maple syrup.
Salted caramel is one of my all-time-best sweet treats and if you haven’t seen my recipe for this you can find it by clicking here.
This is what it looks like:
Its pure golden heaven!
Admittedly I had a jar of this on hand so making these French Toast sandwiches was pretty quick and easy. You could also use a ready made caramel or dulce du leche.
I quite like making French Toast made with only beaten eggs as I did with this horrendously delicious dish, but for this I think its good to add a splash of milk and a dash of vanilla extract, it keeps them a little more light and fluffy.
Recipe on Drizzle and Dip
If you are not into banana’s then fill them with fried apple or pear pieces instead. You could of course move over to a completely savoury vibe and do bacon or ham and cheese. I think bacon and banana would be amazing, or you could just have the crispy bacon on the side.
I think on balance I prefer my French Toast fried on both sides and topped with things like I did with my Gorgonzola and pear recipe. This way you can increase your bread to fruit ratio.
