Banana Berry French Toast

These are the things I would never order at a restaurant.

  • Scrambled Eggs
  • Grilled Salmon
  • Pasta Aglio Olio

And now, I will add French Toast to the list. I mean, why pay $15 at some brunch spot for this, when I can easily whip them up at home? And use as much chocolate and maple syrup as I want?

Here’s a simple recipe to jazz up that homemade French Toast. Makes 2 servings. Takes 10 minutes.

Ingredients for Chocolate Banana Berry French Toast:

4 pieces rye or multigrain bread, sliced thickly

2 eggs

1 Tbsp butter

1 large banana

A handful of berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)

Chocolate spread (like Nutella)

Store-bought berry yoghurt

Icing sugar (optional)

Sliced almonds (optional)

Banana Berry French Toast Prep

Method for Chocolate Banana Berry French Toast:

  1. Lightly toast the almonds slices (if using) in a pan, and set aside.
  2. Spread the chocolate on one side of each slice of bread.
  3. Lay bananas and berries onto one slice, and top with another slice of bread. Press the fruit down gently into the bread while laying it out.
  4. Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Large enough to soak the sandwiches in. Flip to soak both sides.
  5. Let the sandwiches soak up the egg while you fire up a fry pan.
  6. Add a tablespoon of butter, let it sizzle a bit, then add your sandwiches.
  7. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side, or till you see the sides browning nicely.
  8. Remove from pan. Let cool slightly, then dust icing sugar (if using), top with some berry yoghurt and the toasted nuts (if using).
  9. Drizzle maple syrup, and happy days!
