Upside-Down Banana Nut French Toast

I’m a total Daddy’s girl… Butterfly kisses makes me bawl like a baby……Living hundreds of miles away means that when I do see him I try to spoil him. He loves meatloaf (um no), my potato salad, my grape salad, and fruit, particularly bananas.

Yeah, we’re cute aren’t we? 🙂
When I lived in Milwaukee we had a tradition of going to breakfast every Saturday. Some weekends it was just Daddy and I, others my Mom, Sister, or boyfriend (now my Hubby) would come with. Still other Saturdays it would be a family a affair with Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins…. I miss it…alot…So the last Saturday I was home I decided to make him breakfast. When I found this recipe for Upside-Down Banana Pecan French Toast…. I knew it had one of my loyalist reader’s name all over it…told you I’m a Daddy’s girl 🙂
