Coat 2 pieces of dried bacon in 2 Tbs white and 2 Tbs brown sugar. Bake on a raised rack at 300 degrees for 25 minutes until it is crisp.

1 oz bananas, tossed in 1 Tbs brown sugar, sautéed until soft in 1 Tbs butter.
Peanut Butter sauce:
Mix 2 Tbs milk and 1 Tbs peanut butter until smooth.
Mix 1 cup milk, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 2 eggs and 1 Tbs sugar until smooth. Dip 2 pieces of Texas toast in the Royale batter briefly to cover the bread. Heat 1 Tbs butter over medium heat, sear the French toast and cook through.
Plate one piece of the French toast, top with two pieces of candied bacon and the last piece of French toast, then top with the peanut butter sauce, caramelized bananas, candied walnuts, 1 tsp powdered sugar and mint leaf.
