STUFF YOU NEED

This is a family recipe. Kids and Parents: you'll need each other to make it!

HOW TO PUT IT TOGETHER

  1. Crack eggs into a shallow pan or large, wide-bottomed bowl. While beating eggs with a whisk or large fork, add sugar, milk and vanilla extract.
  2. For Kids: Prepare the Tropical Fruit Salsa. In a blender container, toss in the banana halves, peach quarters and cinnamon. Blend on low speed for 30 seconds or until pureed. Set aside.
  3. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat.
  4. For Kids: While the pan is warming, dunk each piece of bread, one at a time, in the egg mixture until the bread has absorbed some of the liquid, but no longer than 30 seconds per slice.
  5. Spray the pan with butter-flavor cooking spray. Place soaked bread, in batches, in pan. Cook bread on each side for 4 to 5 minutes, or until crisped and golden brown, using a spatula to carefully flip the French Toast from one side to the other. Repeat the process for the remaining soaked bread slices.
  6. Serve each slice of French Toast topped with Tropical Fruit Salsa.
  7. For Kids: If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar through a sifter or fine mesh strainer and garnish with mint leaves.
