Banana French Toast
"I like serving bananas with traditional French toast," explains Don Johnson of Southfield, Michigan. "I created this version when we were out of bread but had left over hot dog buns on hand. Try it with confectioners' sugar in place of the maple syrup, or top it with sliced strawberries," he suggests.
