Banana Jubilee French Toast

I hit the jackpot! Last week I went to the commissary to pick up some fruits and veggies and there was a produce special. I bought a bag of twenty bananas for 99 cents! Yay, me! I was thinking of all the banana recipes I could try out. Of course there’s a banana split and banana pudding, but I wanted to make something I’ve never made before. I love this recipe because it’s tasty and can be served for breakfast for brunch. Enjoy!
