My Bananas Foster French Toast Bake travels well after baking, plus it is great to serve on Christmas morning. It's simple to make, and most of the work is done the day before baking. Who doesn't love French toast and bananas Foster? Two great tastes combine for this must-make holiday favorite in my home.

I halved this recipe when I made it. The French toast bake part of this recipe was fabulous. But the banana foster portion was SO SWEET. I could barely stomach it as breakfast. I do plan on making it again but cutting back on the sweetness. Read More
