Banana Bourbon French Toast

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

This is very rich and delicious and is perfect for impressing your company. I love it, but usually scale it down quite a bit since it's just me. It's in my B&B arsenal.

WOW! What a Father's Day treat for DH! Made this with Brioche Loaf # 94536 and it was fabulous! Simple, yummy and very filling. The only change I made -- due to personal preference was I substituted Captain Morgan's Rum for the Bourbon and added a splash of Banana Liquor with a little nutmeg as this is how I usually make Banana's Foster. Great recipe! Thanks for posting!
