Ingredients:  
4 Eggs
1/4 tsp. ground Cinnamon
1/2 cup Milk
6 Tbs. Brown Sugar, firmly packed
Kosher salt, to taste
4 day-old slices Brioche or other Egg Bread, each 1 inch thick

Directions:
Preheat an oven to 200F. 

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cinnamon, milk, 1 Tbs. of the brown sugar and a pinch of salt until well combined. Pour half of the egg mixture into a deep pie dish. Soak 1 bread slice, turning it once, for 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a 9x13 dish. Repeat with the remaining bread and egg mixture. Gently pour any remaining egg mixture over the bread until absorbed. 

In an 11" French skillet, over medium heat, melt 1 1/2 Tbsp. of the butter. Add 2 bread slices and cook, turning once, until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a wire cooling rack set over a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Repeat process with remaining bread. 

In a 9" French skillet over medium-high heat, melt the remaining 3 Tbsp. butter. Add the bananas and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned. Carefully pour in the rum, then add the remaining 5 Tbsp. brown sugar, the vanilla bean paste, water and a pinch of salt. Stir to coat the bananas evenly. Simmer until the bananas are soft and the sauce has thickened. 

Transfer French toast to individual plates and top with bananas. Serve immediately.
