French Toast

Grilled Banana French Toast

This is such an elegant way to serve up French toast and a great twist on a classic. We decided to put the toast on the grill to add to the savory element because of all the sweetness. We created this recipe as part of our Feed the Band series here on Southern Fellow. Aubrey Wollett just happened to be a big breakfast fan as well as a beach girl. So with that in mind we created something that could easily be done on a portable grill. That way you could cook while keeping your eye out for high tide.
