Ingredients

For French Toast Batter
1 loaf prepared Dassant Classic Beer Bread - cut into 8 slices
4 large eggs
3/4 cup half and half
1/4 cup Grand Marnier® (Or other orange-flavored liqueur or frozen orange juice concentrate)
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon orange zest - grated
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons butter

For Caramelized Bananas
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup dark rum
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3 bananas, cut diagonal into 1/3-inch thick slices


For French Toast Batter


Combine eggs, half and half, Grand Marnier®, granulated sugar, orange zest, and vanilla extract in shallow mixing bowl and whisk together.


Dip each bread slice into batter allowing to soak for about 30 seconds.


Melt 2 tablespoons butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 bread slices and grill slightly until egg mixture is sealed to bread- approximately 30 seconds each side.


Dip the bread back in egg mixture, coating each side.


Place in skillet and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining slices.


For Caramelized Bananas


Slice bananas diagonally. Combine 2 tablespoons butter and brown sugar in large skillet over medium-high heat.


Stir until sugar dissolves and bubbles. Add lemon and rum; simmering until mixture thickens, about 3 to 4 minutes.


Add bananas and cook until glazed and caramelized, about 1 minute.


Keep on low heat until all French toast is done cooking.
