Sunday Breakfast

I made my Banana Bread last night (minus the blueberries). Anytime I have those almost black bananas around I ALWAYS make Banana Bread. I really need to find something else to do with them. But my Banana Bread is sooooo good I cant help myself.
This was the conversation in the house last night…
Husband: ” You know what I want for breakfast?”
Me: ” oh God, give me a break, what do you want for breakfast now?”
Hubby: “Banana Bread French Toast.”
Me: “Are you kidding me?”
Hubby: “um, no”
Me: “Where in the Hell do you come up with this stuff.”
Hubby: “It just makes sense, Banana Bread French Toast…yep, that’s what I want”
Me: “Cook it yourself”
Hubby: Sad puppy dog eyes..with a half smerk smile
Me: “Fine”
(we are very sarcastic with each other in a VERY loving way..LOL)

Let me just husband doesn’t even Grill…I know I know..a man that doesn’t grill?? Strange but true! I do 100% of the cooking in the house. Unless you count putting a waffle in the toaster oven for the kids??!! He always comes up with the craziest things in the food department. It will be so easy for me to take care of him when he is old with no teeth..he mixes all of his food up in the first place. So it wont be a big deal for me to puree all his food together!
Wahoo for me!

It was pretty darn good!

If you wish to try this crazy dish..just make your french toast like you normally do, but substitute banana bread for your normal bread! And there you have it!

    I have been wanting to make your Banana Bread ever since I saw it. I’m going to have to hide the bananas from the kids so they stop eating them.

    Anyway what a cool idea this was.

    what a great breakfast! Can you believe that I’ve never made banana bread before?!

    Wow, your husband and I must be on the same wave length! Just as I was reading about your lamenting needing to find something else to do with the bananas, I thought that french toast with the banana bread would be good. I also like making french toast with cinnamon bread or raisin bread.

    But my favorite is thick sliced toast, stuffed with cream cheese then dipped in egg mixture and then crusted with a streusel-like topping. Creamy inside, crunchy outside. Yummy with orange marmalade! Waaay over the top but good every once in a while.

    My husband is the same way; no cooking skills or desire. Although he is quite handy with the panini maker.

    Cute plates!

    Leslie, every time I look at your blog I find a new recipe that I’m dying to try!

    I love banana bread and never seem to finish all of my bananas before they start turning brown. Does anyone know if you can freeze overripe bananas to bake with at a later date or does that ruin their texture?

    I will pass this one to hubby as he is the breakfast master in our house!!

    What a great take on french toast. I think this sounds much better than the original. I can see how your hubby would crave this!

    That is a great idea!

    What a great idea! It looks so good. I’ll have to give it a try since and I love banana bread and french toast! 🙂

    what a great idea–i guess men do have a few every now and then. 🙂

  13. 13

    Absolutely the perfect sounding breakfast to me!! They’d be gone in a flash around here too!

    Banana bread and french toast in one! Yummy! Your husband is a good thinker!

    Banana Bread French Toast sounds so good. I, too, make usually muffins (oven doesn’t take as long) whenever I have overripe bananas. Now I want to try the french toast thing though!

  17. 17

    LOL Sounds like me and my hubby :D…and to think, when we were dating he’d bake ME cakes! 🙂

    Thanks for the sweet comment about my pic!

    BTW, this is an awesome idea. So much more flavorful than the more boring version 😛 (but I have to admit, I love french toast in any shape or form :D).

    Your hubby had a fantastic idea! Over the top and original – I love it. My husband is exactly the same way – has these great ideas for dishes yet doesn’t cook one iota (except for microwaving and toaster ovening).

    I think it’s a brilliant idea! In fact, I’m making some zucchini bread this weekend, and I just might have to try it out as French toast!

    I am always making banana bread too . . . I make french toast with it too! It is awesome!

    Banana bread French toast sounds really good.

    I’ve been hopping around the blogland this morning and don’t remember how I found you, but am certainly glad I did. While I haven’t watched your videos (I’m at work), I totally enjoyed your posts. And THIS banana french toast sounds fabulous. I am certain my boys will LOVE this.
    I’ve added you to my blogroll so I’ll be back.
