Breakfast

Banana French Toast Bake

I had this at a restaurant a couple years ago and just had to recreate it

This is a great menu item for breakfast or brunch.  Your absolutely going to have some fans after making this dish

Butter a half sheet baking dish and layer it with 6 pieces of cinnamon swirl bread (or raisin bread)

Peel and slice 2 large bananas  Try to keep each slice around 1/4 inch thick

Layer the bananas over the bread

You will average around 6 banana slices on each piece of bread, depending on the size of the bananas

Cover with 6 more slices of the bread and press them down lightly

Next up you will need 1 & 1/2 cups of milk, 6 ounces of softened cream cheese, 1/2 cup of sugar, 4 eggs, 4 tablespoons of flour and 4 teaspoons of vanilla extract

Place all these ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth

Pour over the french toast, cover and refrigerate overnight

Preheat your oven to 350 F

Uncover your french toast, it should have absorbed a lot of the milk and egg mixture

Place into the oven and bake 45-55 minutes, until set and nicely browned on top

Remove from the oven and let them sit for at least 10 minutes

 Remove from the pan and cut each one from corner to corner so you will be left with 12 halves

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve
