Today we're making delicious Sourdough french toast and topping it with cinnamon coated bananas and walnuts. This breakfast recipe is so easy to make and SO YUMMY! The sourdough holds up to the milk and egg mixture and soaks in all that scrumptious flavor. I'm using California Goldminer Sourdough bread for this recipe. The slices are nice and big so one slice can be cut into two serving pieces. And it's delicious!
Sourdough French Toast with Bananas and Walnuts
I LOVE to use sourdough for french toast! It's got a little tang to it, not much but enough to add extra flavor to the plate. Plus the texture of sourdough is perfect for holding on to the flavors you add to your dish. We love to make french toast for brunch. It's perfect for any special occasion – especially the Easter brunch we all love. In my family, we all pitch in and share some of our favorite recipes and bring enough to share. French toast is an easy to make treat we don't have all the time and everyone can top it with their own favorite flavors. Ever try peanut butter and maple syrup? Thats a absolute french toast favorite around here!

A couple things to note about the California Goldminer Sourdough Bread:
- It's baked fresh daily right at the Kroger bakery (King Soopers to all my Colorado pals).
- This is a sandwich loaf, so it's pre-sliced and ready to use. Grilled cheese happiness awaits you!
- Preheat griddle to 350 degrees.
- Mix eggs and milk together in a small casserole dish or flat bowl.
- Melt butter on the griddle.
- Dip each slice of bread in the milk mixture, turning bread to opposite side to ensure a thorough coating.
- Place bread on hot griddle. Cook 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Sprinkle each side with cinnamon, if desired.
- Coat banana slices with cinnamon sugar. Place on griddle and let cook for about 2 minutes, turning once.
- Cut each slice of bread in half and place on plate. Top with bananas, walnuts and drizzle with maple syrup.
Note: Find California Goldminer bread near the produce and bakery in Kroger stores (NOT the bread aisle)
