Banana-Stuffed French Toast with Streusel Topping!!!

   


My husband, Jared, did such a great job tonight making dinner.  He chose Banana-Stuffed French Toast with Streusel Topping and boy was it so good. I am supposed to be on a no sugar, low carb diet, but I couldn't make him feel bad now could I. He even did the dishes after he was done!

Here is the recipe if you would like to make it too.

Banana Mixture
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons water
3-4 large ripe bananas, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
