You know the drill.

First things first.  I've never had stuffed French toast.  I know.  I know.  Where have I been all my life. 
No where near stuffed French toast.  That's where.

It's nothing personal against stuffed French toast.  My beef is with froo-froo breakfast in general.  Or, rather, ME cooking them. 

When the little voice inside my head weighs, "Honey Bunches of Oats and sleep 20 more minutes or fancy-pants breakfast?"

...
extra sleep and cereal usually win.

The only time it's ever really worth getting up early is to go fishing. 
 
Jamie Oliver's Banana-Blueberry French Toast
sure sounds and looks fussy. 
But it's not.  
 


I can even sleep 20 more minutes before cooking it.
 
Notes: This really did go faster than expected.  Mash up some banana and blueberries and whisk up some eggs--both take only seconds.  Make a sandwich and brown in butter.  I chose to skip spreading each side of the bread with butter before dipping in the egg wash.  I'll pretend it was in order to be calorie/health conscious.  But I think we all know it was to steal a few extra minutes of sleep.

All of us thought this was good. Something we'd have again. Jamie Oliver also suggests trying other fruit pairings, like banana & strawberry.  I'm game for that.


Banana-Blueberry French Toast can be found in Jamie's Dinners or by visiting JamieOliver.com (direct link to recipe).

  7. I've never had stuffed French toast either and I really don't like making breakfast. If someone makes it for me (which they don't), great, but for me cereal is the way to go simply because it takes 2 seconds. This looks wonderful though and I wish someone would make it for me...

  8. I love having stuffed french toast, but I've never made it at home because it seems like it would be tricky/cumbersome. I'm glad to hear that Jamie has made it easy. This is definitely a recipe that I would love!
