Ingredients

Stuffed French Toast

  • ½ medium banana, mashed
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 loaf white bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Egg Mixture

  • 1 small egg, whisked
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Toppings

  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup maple syrup

Instructions

  • To get started with this recipe, you will need two small bowls and a skillet.
  • In one small bowl, mix together the mashed banana, cream cheese, sugar, and cinnamon.
  • Take out six slices of bread.
  • Add one tablespoon of the banana mixture to the center of each of the 6 pieces of white bread.
  • Top with another slice of white bread, creating a sandwich.
  • Use a 3" circle cutter to cut off the crusts. Or, you could use the mouth of a jar or glass to get the circular shape.
  • Use the tines of a fork to seal the edges and set the 6 pockets aside.
  • In the second small bowl, mix together the egg, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  • Melt the butter in the skillet over medium heat.
  • Dip the sealed pockets into the egg mixture, coating all sides.
  • Add the pockets to the skillet, 3 at a time (working in batches). After about 3 minutes, or when the bottom is golden brown, flip and repeat with the opposite side. Repeat this process for the final 3 pockets.
  • Top with chopped walnuts and syrup.
  • Serve warm.
