Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 500°F. Line a baking sheet with foil; lightly coat the foil with cooking spray. Combine eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Beat with a wire whisk or rotary beater until well mixed. Set aside.
  2. Using a knife, cut a pocket in each bread slice, cutting horizontally from the top crust almost to, but not through, the bottom crust. Fill the bread pockets with banana.
  3. Dip the bread slices into the egg mixture, coating both sides of each slice. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden, turning once. If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar or serve with syrup.
