France would be proud

by Khushboo on April 8, 2011

All through high school & university, I brought home relatively good grades.  Considering I seemed to ‘love the library’, that’s probably no surprise.  Although lately, some of the ditzy comments I’ve been coming out have just been embarrassing. Note to self: make more of an effort to keep up-to-date with current news.

Despite being a legend of his time, I know close to nothing about Elvis.  I do recall Uncle Jesse from Full House idolising him…and what Elvis’s favorite sandwich was.  Clearly I have all the important bases covered…clearly 😉 : a peanut butter, banana, + bacon sandwich. I may not be able to pop my hip like Mr. Presley, nor can I curl my lip whilst speaking ..but I sure can make a mean sandwich. Exhibit A: today’s breakfast:

The Ultimate French Toast Sandwich

Ingredients

  • 2 egg-whites
  • Cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons soy milk
  • 2 slices bread
  • Half a banana, cut lengthwise into 4
  • Peanut butter
  • Syrup of choice

Method

  1. Whisk the egg-whites with cinnamon+ soy milk
  2. Dip both slices of bread in the egg mixture
  3. Coat a  heated skillet with spray oil and fry both pieces of bread on each side until golden brown
  4. Once the eggy bread is cooked, remove from skillet and spread both slices with peanut butter
  5. Top each slice with the banana and sandwich together
  6. Re-heat the same skillet (less washing the better) and fry the sandwich for a minute on both sides,  until both the peanut butter and banana seem gooey
  7. Plate your sandwich, top with Agave/maple syrup/honey, and dig in!

My kids would love this sandwich. They love peanut butter, they love french toast(eggy bread as they call it) and the combination with the bananas is a real winner for them. Thanks Khushboo. Really enjoy reading your blog and love your recipe ideas. Keep going.
