Banana Stuffed French Toast


This recipe is a nice twist to the traditional french toast


You can use cinnamon for dusting once the dish is complete (as stated below) or add a bit of flour on top of the toast. 


Which do you prefer?





2 ripe bananas, mashed

3/4 cup milk

8 slices of bread, crust trimmed off

4 tablespoons butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 eggs

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, extra for dusting

Your favorite maple syrup or bourbon maple syrup



Heat a skillet over medium-low heat. Add 1 tablespoon butter. When the butter starts to sizzle add the mashed bananas. Cook for about 3 minutes then place the bananas in a bowl and let it cool.


In a pan or bowl whisk the milk, vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and eggs. Dip one side of the bread in the egg mixture. Place the bread, egg side down, on a plate and spoon the banana mixture in the middle of the bread. Use you finger to dip into the egg mixture and dab the egg mixture on the border of the bread. This will act as a glue to hold the top bread.


Add another slice of bread, egg side facing up, to the top of the bread on the plate to form a sandwich. The sides of the bread that are touching the banana do not have the egg mixture. The outside of the bread slices have been dipped in the egg mixture.


Heat a skillet over medium-low heat. Add 3 tablespoons butter. When the butter starts to sizzle add the toasts. If the skillet is large it might hold 2 French toasts. You can use 2 skillets at the same time so that all 4 French toasts will be ready at the same time.


Cook until lightly browned on one side. Turn and cook on the other side until lightly browned. Move to a plate and dust with cinnamon. Serve with your favorite syrup.

    I tried this and it was fast and delicious! Was tired of the pancakes and waffles for breakfast and wanted to do something different. I also added some nutella with the bananas and topped it off with whipped cream.
