Brioche French Toast #FrenchFlavorFlair from @IHOP {win a $25 gift card}

Brioche French Toast #FrenchFlavorFlair from @IHOP |
 Have you seen the commercials?  Do they make you hungry?  Well, that is EXACTLY what they kept doing to me!  So, when I had the opportunity to load the kids into the car and head over for breakfast with a little #FrenchFlavorFlair, I didn't waste any time.  Seriously, I didn't...just ask the hubs who was at work and missed out because my impatience won out.

The hardest decision was choosing between the three different, limited-edition varieties of thick, tempting Brioche French Toast on the menu.  Berry-Berry Brioche.  Peaches and Cream Brioche!  Bananas Foster Brioche!?!  What's a girl to do?  I closed my eyes, spun the menu around, and chose the one that my finger landed on.  The only logical way to pick, of course.

Bananas Foster Brioche French Toast, it was.  With a side of bacon, because that's the way I roll.  How was it, you ask?  Fat, tender bread...lightly sweet vanilla batter...bananas in a buttery brown sugar glaze...ummmmmm - hello!  It was delicious.  And all the kids clamored over it (I told them they should have ordered it for themselves.  Mother knows best.)
