      I LOVE this one, but the great thing is that you can easily scale it down and make single servings in the ramekins by only using 2 of the jumbo biscuits and 1/4 of the banana. So if you want a little afternoon snack, indulge away!

      Oh, if you think this one is tasty, wait until you taste the Blueberry French Toast recipe that I'm posting in the morning, OMG, it's sooooo addicting
