Steps

Peanut Butter & Banana Stuffed French Toast

  1. Heat oven to 200F (93C). Set a rimmed baking sheet on the middle rack.
  2. Stand bread up top crust-side up. Using a small paring knife, carefully make a 2-inch long and deep cut in the tops of each slice of bread to create a pocket.
  3. Using spoon or knife, spread 2 tablespoons of peanut butter into the pocket of each slice of bread. Stuff each pocket with banana slices and set aside.
  4. Whisk together eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla in 9x13-inch (33x23cm) baking dish.
  5. Add bread into the egg mixture and allow it to soak for 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  6. Melt 1 tablespoon (15g) butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add two slices of stuffed bread and cook until browned on both sides, about 4 to 6 minutes, flipping halfway. Transfer to oven and repeat with remaining slices.
  7. Serve warm topped with Banana Caramel Sauce.
