    • 3/4 cup half and half
    • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier® (Or other orange-flavored liqueur or frozen orange juice concentrate)

    • For Caramelized Bananas

    • Slice bananas diagonally. Combine 2 tablespoons butter and brown sugar in large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir until sugar dissolves and bubbles. Add lemon and rum; simmering until mixture thickens, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add bananas and cook until glazed and caramelized, about 1 minute. Keep on low heat until all French toast is done cooking.
