Recipe Saturday - Bananas Foster French Toast

Hello My Lovelies,

Happy Saturday! As you all know I'm a Caterer, and food is my thing. I love to cook all different kinds of food, but cooking for breakfast and brunch are my favorite meals to prepare. This week I thought I would go with breakfast for the featured recipe. I love French toast, and I'm always looking for different ways to prepare it. This is a old favorite for my family, and my clients. It's simple to prepare, and you can make it for breakfast or brunch. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do..

8 large croissants, halved

1/2 cup dark corn syrup

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup chopped pecans

6 ripe bananas, halved crosswise and lengthwise

Repeat procedure with remaining butter and croissant halves. Set aside and keep warm.
