Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Grease a baking sheet; set aside. Using a sharp knife, cut a pocket horizontally into each French bread slice, cutting from the top crust almost to the bottom crust.

  • In a small bowl stir together banana and cream cheese. Spoon 1 rounded tablespoon of the banana-cream cheese mixture into each pocket.

  • In a shallow bowl beat together eggs, milk, and vanilla. In a pie plate stir together peanuts, sugar, and cinnamon. Dip the stuffed bread slices into the egg mixture, turning to coat. Dip into the nut mixture, turning to coat.

  • Place the stuffed bread slices on the prepared baking sheet. Bake about 6 minutes or until golden brown. Turn slices over. Bake about 5 minutes more or until golden brown. If desired, serve with maple-flavor syrup and/or sprinkle with powdered sugar.
