Banana-Stuffed French Toast
My family liked this French toast so much when they first tried it on vacation that I came up with my own version at home. Eating it brings back some wonderful memories.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
- 4 slices sourdough or Italian bread (1 inch thick)
- 2 large ripe bananas
