On any typical Saturday in my home, you will find a variety of activity going on from the mendacity of housework to the thrill of laundry.
As in all cases, being a Domestic Diva is a tough job…
However, occasionally some inspiration strikes and suddenly you find that your Saturday morning is not so typical.
This was one of those days.
Enter Ellie Krieger from Food Network and what follows is my utterly indulgent and highly caloric breakfast treat!
Here is my take on her “calorie conscious recipe,” however I improvised nicely with things I already had in the house.
Things, I might add, should be a staple in every pantry.
Here is my modified recipe for Banana Chocolate Stuffed French Toast:
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1 C. milk
- 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
Beat these ingredients together and set aside.
- Mascarpone Cheese
- 2 bananas, sliced
- Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
- 4 slices of bread
Lay out the bread slices, and spread one rounded Tablespoon of the mascarpone cheese on one slice, layer sliced bananas over that, and sprinkle some chocolate chips. Repeat on another slice of bread. Make a sandwich and dunk the sandwich in the egg batter.
Place on hot griddle and cook until golden, toasty and the inside is warm.
Top with a few more slices of banana, some extra chocolate chips, and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
From my house to yours, have a lovely, lazy Saturday!
