Trisha Yearwood’s firm belief that a person does not have to deny themselves good food to live a healthier lifestyle is evident in her Food Network series Trisha’s Southern Kitchen. There she demonstrates recipes that are both healthy and indulgent. One of her favorite things to enjoy on a leisurely morning is brunch. Then she will eat food items she may not normally treat herself to during the week. This indulgent Hazelnut French Toast with Cinnamon cereal is a favorite and celebratory way to linger over a meal.
Trisha Yearwood loves a late breakfast
Yearwood and her husband Garth Brooks are both fans of eating later on the weekends. They enjoy lingering over coffee and enjoying foods they may not eat during a hurried weekday.
In an interview with Salon, Yearwood explained that her brunch recipes generally come from recipes she has developed with her husband. The Food Network star revealed that ideas for some of her more decadent late morning meals come from the “Friends in Low Places” singer.
“A lot of my new recipes come from conversations I have with Garth. He usually dreams up some idea and asks if I can figure out how to make it, and I’m always up for the challenge. We both love a late breakfast,” she explained,

To push this particular recipe over the top, Yearwood slices bananas and allows them to carmelize in a skillet of butter. This extra step sends this already indulgent recipe over the top in flavor and overall presentation.
The bananas can take the place of a traditional butter and syrup topping. However, if you prefer not to use the bananas, any toppings your family enjoys can be substituted.
New episodes of Trisha’s Southern Kitchen air Saturdays beginning at noon EST on the Food Network.
