Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
1. Place two eggs in a wide, shallow dish, add a tablespoon of water, a pinch of salt, and pinches of nutmeg and cinnamon. Beat with a fork to mix well.
2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil (or butter) in a medium-size frying pan until it shimmers. While the oil heats, dip four slices of bread, one at a time, into the egg mixture and turn to coat each slice. Place the bread, two slices at a time, in the pan and cook over medium-low heat until golden brown on both sides. Remove to plates.
3. Add 2 tablespoons butter (butter browns the bananas better than oil) to the pan, heat until it bubbles, then add the sliced bananas and a teaspoon of sugar (or honey) and cook quickly so the bananas turn light brown. If you have any rum, you can add a splash to the bananas now and cook for a minute before adding the orange juice.
4. Add the orange juice, cook a few moments till juice is warm, and spoon the bananas and orange sauce over the French toast. Garnish with chopped nuts if you like.
