If Elvis Were Alive Today....

...he would have been at my house eating breakfast! This is the first entry for breakfast on my blog - and there is one simple reason for that - I can't make it! Jamie is the breakfast king - but I had some bananas to use up, and my loaf and muffin pans seem to have disappeared. So...I found this simple and very yummy recipe for Peanut Butter and Banana French Toast on Allrecipes that would be fit for The King (not Jamie). I have never tried bananas & peanut butter together, and I was surprised at how much I liked it. I served it warm with some maple syrup...and Jamie said "Thank you, thank you very much". :)

****After a suggestion by Joelen, a fellow WC'er, I've entered this recipe in the Fruit Frenzy Blogging Event, check out her awesome blog at Joelen's Culinary Adventures ******

Oooh, PB & bananas is an awesome combo! Great idea stuffing these in french toast :) You could even submit this to the Fruit Frenzy blogging event I'm hosting (and maybe win the giveaway prize too!). Details are in my blog and thanks for sharing!
