Happy Sunday!! Brunch is the best!!

    I love Sundays!! I go back to work tomorrow so to celebrate my last day of vacation we slept in and then enjoyed a yummy brunch of Sack's Blend coffee from Kaladi Brothers and some French Toast. If I hadn't slept in so late there might have been some home fries added to the mix but we'll save those for another time! There is a secret ingredient to this dish....it's Grand Marnier! You could always leave this out or substitute it with orange or almond flavoring.
   One more thing! The syrup we used I just bought at Sur La Table's holiday sale! It's Stonewall Kitchen's Holiday Syrup. It's a delicious mix of  pear, cranberry, raspberry, orange liqueur, and spices. Best of all it's on sale right now for $1.69! Sur La Table really has great deals on their clearance/sale items. Go stock up on some for gifts next year!


  


Orange French Toast with Bananas and Walnuts
Serves 4 people


Ingredients:

 4 beaten eggs
 1 cup milk
 2 tablespoons sugar
 2 teaspoons vanilla
 2 teaspoons Grand Marnier (optional)
 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
 8 slices whole wheat bread or sprouted wheat bread
 2 tablespoons butter
 2 bananas, sliced diagonally
 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  Add: Stonewall Kitchen Holiday Syrup and maybe some whip cream or cool whip!

 Directions:

  1. In a shallow bowl beat together eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, Grand Marnier, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Dip bread slices into egg mixture, coating both sides. 
  2. In a skillet, or on a griddle melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium heat; add half of the bread slices and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining butter and bread slices.
  3. Place two bread slices on each plate and top with sliced bananas, and chopped walnuts. Serve with syrup and enjoy each bite!


 Hint: Preheat oven to 325F before starting. While cooking, keep finished french toast in the oven to stay nice and warm.
