Island flavored stuffed French toast

Serves 4


  • 1 (8 ounce) package softened low-fat/reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 8 slices good bread
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter (more may be needed)
  • Extra banana slices and powdered sugar for garnish
  • Syrup


  1. In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese, powdered sugar, lemon zest, vanilla and lemon juice.
  2. Preheat griddle or skillet to 350 degrees F.
  3. Spread softened "cheesecake" mixture on 2 slices of bread.
  4. Place bananas and coconut into the cream cheese mixture, and then press together to make a sandwich.
  5. In a pie dish, beat 1 cup milk, 1 egg, vanilla and almond extract together.
  6. Dip the "sandwich" into the egg wash, just as you would to make French toast.
  7. Place a 1/2 tablespoon of butter into skillet or onto griddle, and then add the stuffed sandwich. Cook on both sides until crispy.
