You Want a Sunday Breakfast Treat

August 29, 2009 by

Tomorrow is Sunday, and you really have nothing planned first thing in the morning.

So you have the time to start the day off with a special treat.

You don't want to make a big breakfast casserole since there won't be anyone to eat the leftovers.

And you want something a little more special than the standard breakfast fare of eggs, bacon,and pancakes.

Well if you like french toast, I have the perfect recipe for you!

This recipe takes your standard french toast recipe up a notch, by incorporating a sweet but light bananas foster filling, that makes an ordinary breakfast treat into something extraordinary.

So the next time you want a Sunday breakfast treat, save a few bananas for the weekend.  You've got the perfect recipe that will start your day out on a high note.

Until our next meal,
