When we visited Disney, I enjoyed this amazing dish called Tonga Toast at Kona Cafe. Essentially, it was a large piece of banana stuffed French toast deep fried and rolled in cinnamon sugar. While delicious, I found the deep frying part too heavy and the cinnamon sugar part on the outside far too sweet. So I decided to do my own version! It turned out better than I could have imagined, and used none of the whole deep frying process.
What You'll Need
2 Slices Sourdough bread, 2" thick
1/4 Cup Fat Free Half and Half
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
Butter or Buttery Spread
Optional : Maple Syrup or Powdered Sugar
Slice the bread to 2" thick. Then, slice into the bread creating a pocket without cutting all the way through.
Slice a banana into thin slices. Put as many slices in the pocket as you can fit.
On a griddle or large frying pan, melt about 1 tablespoon of butter per slice over medium heat.
In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 egg with 1/4 cup fat free half and half, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 teaspoon of cinnnamon.
Drench the slices in the egg mixture and place on the hot griddle or skillet.
Grill each slice until lightly browned on each side.
Pour syrup over if you like - I like maple syrup with this, but it's also good with a strawberry compote! I also sprinkled powdered sugar over it for a little extra sweetness.
