French Toast

  • 1/2 cup milk preferably whole milk
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground nutmeg (or 1/4 tsp pre-ground)
  • 6 slices thick cut bread such as white, challah, brioche

Bananas Foster Topping

  • 2 bananas, ripe
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp butter, salted
  • 3 tbsp dark rum
  • 2 tbsp banana liqueur
  • 1/4 cup pecan halves, unsalted
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


Grill French Toast

  • Preheat the grill to medium heat. If using a griddle or skillet, place on grill to preheat as well.
  • Mix egg, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg together until well combined
  • Dip both sides of bread into the egg mixture and place on a lightly oiled griddle or skillet. May also place directly on the grill grates (If putting directly on grate, carefully spray with grill spray or oil grate beforehand with a paper towel and tongs).
  • Cook until the egg is set and lightly brown on both sides.
  • After the french toast is cooked, cover to hold warm until bananas are finished.

Make Bananas Foster

  • Cut bananas into slices, and have all ingredients prepped and alongside the grill ready to use.
  • Heat skillet over medium heat. Add butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar to the pan.
  • Stir until sugar dissolves.
  • Stir in banana liqueur.
  • Add bananas to the pan. Cook until softened and start to brown lightly. Add pecans if desired
  • Pull pan off heat, slowly add the rum
  • Cook for about 10 seconds until rum is warmed then ignite with a long match or grill lighter (at the edge of the pan). If for some reason it does not ignite, carefully return the pan to the grill and cook for a minute or two until the alcohol burns off.
  • Bananas are finished once the flames go out. Spoon over French toast.
  • If desired, top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Serve immediately.
