Peanut Butter & Banana French Toast

December 5, 2010

I was never a sandwich lover as a child.  I was the one with all side dishes in my lunch box.  I’m still not a major bread person, but I do love the combo of peanut butter and banana.  Last Sunday, when I saw we had leftover challah and some bananas that needed to be eaten before they were only good for banana bread, I had an epiphany!  French toasted peanut butter and banana sandwich!  Why didn’t I think of this sooner??  This was the easiest Sunday fancy breakfast ever!

Ingredients (yields 2 servings)
4 slices whole wheat challah (or any bread)
4 tablespoons peanut butter
1 banana
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Put a non-stick frying pan over medium heat.

Spread 1 tablespoon peanut butter on each slice of bread.  Slice banana and spread slices over each slice of bread.  Drizzle honey over all four slices.  Fold slices into two sandwiches.

In a separate bowl, whisk egg, milk and cinnamon.  Dip each sandwich in the egg mixture.  Place onto screaming hot frying pan.

When the bread is golden, give the sandwich a flip and let the other side get golden.  Serve it up with a little drizzle of maple syrup or honey.

The warm peanut butter gets super creamy and the warm bananas are amazingly gooey.  The drizzle of honey inside keeps everything moist and the egged outside of the bread gets nice and crispy.  I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner, but it’s sure to become a favorite in our house!  It could also totally be served with a scoop of ice cream as a dessert!
