French Toast With Caramel and Banana

 

Burden

As I’ve mentioned before, one of my favorite things is eating and awesome dish and going home and trying to recreate it in a simple way. This one is no different.  Hold onto your butts because I’m about to make breakfast right!

French Toast Banana Foster1. You’ll need bananas(duh), butter, an egg, milk, cinnamon, vanilla extract, brown sugar and a nice thick toast like Texas toast. None of that wimpy shit.

French Toast Banana Foster2. Slice your fucking banana.

French Toast Banana Foster3.  Melt half a stick of butter in a saucepan and add a cup of brown sugar. Once that bitch caramelizes add a half cup of milk and a tablespoon of vanilla and lower the heat after stirring. 

French Toast Banana Foster4. For the French Toast mix, add equal amounts beaten egg and milk. Coat the top with cinnamon. If anyone ever tells you that you use too much cinnamon you need to cut that mofo from your life. Beat it vigorously(TWSS).

French Toast Banana Foster5. Dip both sides of the toast in the mix and let it soak it up. Fry both sides in butter until golden. Once the toast it cooked place bananas and caramel sauce over it.

Baking Bread Has Never Been So Easy!

A Hulk Sized Hunger

So a while back I posted this gem on my Facebook Page(which you should join because I’m awesome). Of course I couldn’t share that with you and NOT try it for myself. I mean..c’mon… what kind of cooking blog would this be otherwise? Well it worked deliciously. It will bring all the girls to your yard…or something like that.

Maple Walnut Bread1. Self rising flour, bread pan, shortening, and maple walnut ice cream. GOOD local ice cream from a place like UConn Dairy Bar or Shady Glen’s. What? You don’t live in Connecticut? Good for you(No seriously, good for you).

Maple Walnut Bread2. Mix two cups of ice cream with one and a half cups self rising flour.

Maple Walnut Bread3. Grease the pan and lump that dough in there. Bake for 45 minutes at the oddly specific temperature of 356 degrees.

Maple Walnut Bread4. Holy shit! It’s bread?! This is the greatest thing since ice cream itself!

Bacon AND Cheese? Madness.

Today we make bacon and chicken mac and cheese… well… rotini and cheese. I chose rotini for this recipe because it has more spirarly surface area to capture cheesy goodness.

Rotini Vs. Macaroni

Bacon and Chicken Mac and Cheese1.  5 thin sliced chicken breasts, 6 strips of extra thick center cut bacon, a stick of butter, panko, flour, adobo, pepper, chicken boullion,  sharp yellow cheddar, smoked white cheddar, and a cheese with a fancy name like Gruyere. Now set your damn oven to 350.

Bacon and Chicken Mac and Cheese2. Season chicken with adobo and pepper, cut bacon into inch long pieces and grate cheese.

Bacon and Chicken Mac and Cheese8. Drain pasta but save broth. Melt a stick a butter (Paula Dean would approve) and add a half cup of flour and stir. Slowly add grated cheese and stir till smooth. Resist urges to eat all the cheese.

Bacon and Chicken Mac and Cheese9. Add pasta, bacon and chicken and stir that shit up.

Bacon and Chicken Mac and Cheese10. Place into a dish that will actually fit all of it and coat the top with panko crumbs. Bake in oven until the top browns.
