Over the past few years, I have created so many French Toast dishes. I really enjoy French Toast more than Pancakes and this particular recipe is one of my favorites.
Back in the diners my father used to have in New York we used to have a French Toast called “The Elvis.” It was known that bananas and peanut butter stuffed French Toast was The Kings favorite. Or at least that is what I was told.
It was a great seller, people loved it and I wanted to recreate that dish and I know I nailed it with this one. The sautéed bananas really tip the dish over the edge to amazing!! It is super easy to prepare and will certainly wow the family.
Sliced Bread, 1/2” thick 8 slices *see notes

*Chef’s Notes: When deciding on the type of bread to use either purchase a full size loaf of any bread you choose and slice yourself, making sure the crust is thin and a bit soft or purchase a good quality white bread that has some body to it, such as an artisan bread.
