Banana & Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast

Ingredients

For the French Toast Filling:
6 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 T. honey
1/4 t. cinnamon
dash of fresh ground nutmeg
1/2 t. lemon juice
2 ripe but firm bananas, sliced thin
For the Batter:
1 c. flour
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. baking powder
pinch of salt
1 c. milk
3 eggs
1 T. honey
8 slices of good quality white sandwich bread
4 t. butter
4 t. canola (or vegetable) oil
maple syrup, for serving

Preparation

1
In a small bowl combine the softened cream cheese, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon juice, set aside while preparing the batter.
2
Whisk together all of the batter ingredients until thoroughly mixed. (This is a breeze if you use a blender.) Pour the batter into a wide, shallow dish (like a pie plate).
3
Spread the filling mixture equally over 1 side of each slice of bread, divide the sliced bananas between 4 slices of the bread, top with the remaining 4 slices, press lightly.
4
Melt 2 t. butter and 2 t. oil in a 12 inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until the butter foams and then subsides. Working with one sandwich at a time dip both sides in the batter and let the excess drip away, add to the hot pan, repeat with a second sandwich. Cook until golden brown on the first side, around 3-5 minutes, flip and repeat on the second side. Repeat this process with the remaining, oil, butter and sandwiches. To serve, cut into triangles and serve with maple syrup.
