Bananas Foster French Toast Cassserole


We just got the announcement that my daughter will be going back to college in the fall. They are doing a hybrid of in person classes, on-line classes and some classes will include both. They are not having any breaks from September 2nd to November 20th when they will break for Thanksgiving. After that students will be on-line exclusively from home for the last two weeks of classes and finals in December. As long as Coronavirus cases don’t increase during the time school is in session that is the plan. My daughter is so excited. She can start to plan now. Everything had been on hold for so long and now she can move forward.

The other good news she got this week was that they are opening the library where she works, as a page, and she can return July 1st. Also, her dance teacher the school back up so they will have in person dance camp in August. It will be a bit different but they will still be together in person. Things are finally looking up!

Verdict: This is SUPER rich and delicious. This would make an amazing addition to a brunch for a sweet treat or a dessert. Makes plenty for leftovers too if serving for a family breakfast or dinner.
