Banana Bread Stuffed French Toast

  • SERVES: 4
  • PREP: 10 minutes (not including making the banana bread)
  • TOTAL TIME: 15 minutes

In John's words, it's "sinful."

As if our Ultimate Banana Bread Mix wasn't decadent enough, we took it one sweet step further and turned one viral dish into (hopefully) another viral dish: Banana Bread Stuffed French Toast! It starts with a baked banana bread loaf (using our mix), which is sliced gently lengthwise and then sliced again in the middle of each piece (like a coin slot) then stuffed with slices of fresh banana. Next, it gets battered and fried in our Fave Stainless Steel Pan (for easy cleanup) like any French toast would. It's just that simple. Our favorite part? The decorating! We go ham on syrup, powdered sugar, berries, and whipped cream but top it however you like. Whip up a batch for Mom this Mother's Day, or anytime! In John Legend's words, it's "sinful!"

The three musketeers of the kitchen—a chef’s knife for slicing, dicing, and all things prep, a serrated knife for slicing through bread or delicate items like fresh tomatoes, and a paring knife for peeling and making controlled, precise cuts—are all you need to handle most daily cooking needs, and an ideal trio to kick off a knife collection.Full-tang blades run to the base of the handles for optimum control and balanced weight. The triple-riveted ashwood handles look cute on a tablescape, without having to buy separate knives for serving.
