Ingredients

4 tablespoons I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® Original Soft Spread

1 ripe banana, sliced and parted

1 heaping tablespoon peanut butter

1/8 cup 9 Spice Cruzan rum

2 teaspoons sugar

Pinch of salt

3 eggs

1/4 cup 2% milk (optional)

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 slices white, brioche or whole grain bread (I used whole grain for this recipe)

1/4 cup fresh mango, mashed

2 tablespoons maple syrup

Dash of confectioners' sugar

Directions

  1. For banana mixture
  2. In 8" skillet, melt 2 tablespoons I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® Original Soft Spread. Add 3/4 of banana, peanut butter, rum, sugar and pinch of salt. You will get flames so be careful in handling your skillet. Bring to boil, breaking down the bananas using a wooden fork or spoon. Using same spoon, stir until bananas have cooked down and rum has infused. You want to end up with a semi-thick mixture with some chunkiness in the bananas. Set aside and cool.
  3. For toast
  4. Whisk eggs in medium bowl. Add milk, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Combine well. Drench each slice of bread until fully covered in egg mixture. Using stovetop grill pan, melt remaining 2 tablespoons of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® Original Soft Spread and grill one slice of bread. Top first slice with banana mixture, the cover with the second slice of bread and press down using a spatula. Cook on each side until bread is golden brown and egg is cooked through, approximately 4-5 minutes on each side. Lastly, cook remaining bananas in same grill pan for 2-3 minutes.
  5. For syrup topping
  6. In small bowl mash mango using fork until broken down but still a bit chunky. Stir in maple syrup until both are well combined. You may add a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg here.
  7. To plate
  8. Slice French toast diagonally. Pour mango syrup, top with remaining bananas and dust with confectioner's sugar and a dash more cinnamon.
