Raisin Bread French Toast, Hickory Bacon, and Caramelized Bananas

4.3 from 6 reviews


  • 6 slices of raisin bread (I used the raisin loaf that’s shaped like a baguette bought at French Baker)
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp nutmeg
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • Maple syrup
  • Bananas
  • Hickory Bacon, fried to a crisp


  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together, eggs, milk, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. Working one at a time, dip the sliced bread into the egg mixture.
  4. Add the sliced bread to the skillet, 2-3 at a time, and cook until evenly golden brown about 2-3 minutes on each side.
  5. Sliced the bananas horizontally, and place in the skillet until caramelized on each side. Add butter if necessary.
  6. Layer french toast, caramelized bananas and bacon on a plate. Drizzle with maple syrup.
