Everyone in my house loves the delicious flavor of banana, so it was only natural that my breakfast recipes have evolved to use my family's favorite fruit.

BANANA CREAM FRENCH TOAST
Ingredients
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 package vanilla instant pudding
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 12 ounces frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 large bananas, sliced
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • pinch sugar
  • dash cinnamon
  • 8 slices bread
Directions
Beat together cream cheese and pudding. Add in milk and whipped topping. When combined, set aside. In a flat dish, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar and cinnamon. Spread a generous dollop of the cream filling on a slice of bread and top with banana slices and another slice of bread. Soak the sandwich on both sides in the egg mixture. Cook the sandwiches on a preheated griddle as you would for French toast.
Cook's Notes: Preheat your griddle at a slightly lower temperature than you would for regular French toast. This will allow your food to cook longer so the heat can penetrate through the filling of sandwiches without burning the outside.
