Caramelized Banana & Cream Cheese Filled French Toast

As promised, here is this killer french toast recipe I made a few days ago. This stuff is beyond delicious. I could not stop eating it. It falls under the ridiculous category right along side these little bad boys.

I got an email a few weeks ago from one of my friends in Ottawa {hi Dawn!} telling me about the best french toast she’s ever had and explained the ingredients and how it’s made. Well, it left my mind for a week or two and then came back to my remembrance {with a vengeance} early this week!

So, from what I remembered in that email, I did my best to re-create it.

Sweet merciful, is this good. And not just good….goo-ood. Divine and heavenly. Seriously. Seriously. I’m not that big on bananas, but when you caramelize them and then put them with cream cheese and cinnamon? AND THEN smother the whole thing in butter and syrup?! You will just die. And then take another bite and die again.

For reals, guys. You all need to make this. Right now. I posted this recipe today for a reason. Tomorrow is Saturday! A perfect day to sleep in, relax and enjoy a decadent breakfast. You might even have time to go for a nice long run to burn off all those extra calories too! Haha! Just kidding.

I take full responsibility for all the calories you will inevitably consume with this meal. You’re welcome! ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great weekend!

    Oh my, this french toast looks fantastic!
    I’ve been on a bread making spreed so I’ll have plenty of leftover bread to try my hands on this recipe.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Made this for a Saturday morning leisurely breakfast and with a side of home cured Canadian bacon, it was delicious! Thank you for a much easier take on stuffed french toast.

    this looks sensational. i don’t know why it took me so long to see this recipe – being that it is from May. I’m bookmarking. Thanks! You come up with amazing recipes – I’m assuming it is yours. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I made this for breakfast this morning (even after waking up a half hour late and having to be to work early!) and I really loved it! I’ve always wanted to caramelize bananas but I guess I’ve just never gotten around to it! This recipe was so good! I topped mine with extra sliced banana, walnuts, and maple syrup! I’ll be making this again for sure and will try strawberries next time! Thanks!

    I made these this morning and they were such a hit!
    I like to add crunch to a lot of my recipes, so I actually chopped up hazelnuts and coated the sandwich in the crumbs after the egg. They were delish. Thank you for sharing!

  11. Yuliya

    omg how i wish i had bananas right this second. guess ill have to do jst plain french toast today, and tomorrow this one!

  12. Dana

    I adore your recipes because most are so simple, yet turn out incredible!! I can’t wait to make this! I know my husband’s going to die when he eats this! YUM!

    I was searching for a nice stuffed french toast and came across this so HAD TO try it. I used my home made yeast bread and this was a very good start to a Sunday morning. I like the fact that this wasn’t too sweet. Thanks for sharing.

  14. samuel

    found this today, made it for me and my brother. and just finished eating it. it came out amazing. great meal. filling an delicious , a strawberry filling is next on my list. thank you.

  15. Adrienne

    These were delicious but we found them REALLY sweet, even after I halved the sugar. Will make again, but perhaps not carmelize the bananas that are going into the toast, just a few for the top.

    1. Lauren

      I think it would work but I wouldn’t soak the stuffed bread in the egg mixture until you’re ready to fry them up the next morning.
