PEANUT BUTTER AND BANANA STUFFED FRENCH TOAST STICKS



In case you are unaware by now; MY KIDS LOVE peanut butter! They could eat it 3 times a day and not complain. Some time ago while watching Paula Deen on The Food Network, she made a French Toast similar to this, but she doused it in butter, then rolled it in cinnamon sugar (that's Paula for ya!) I did try her version and it was sure good, but I modified it so my kids weren't on a sugar high by 8:30 am! The kids love the strips that they dip in their own little cup of syrup.

P.B. AND BANANA STUFFED FRENCH TOAST STICKS


Figure two slices of bread per person
Lay each slice out side by side
On one slice, spread softened reduced fat cream cheese
On it's opposite slice, spread with peanut butter
Slice banana into rounds and place 6 or 7 on top of peanut butter
Sandwich the two slices together
Dredge sandwich in your french toast egg mixture (egg, milk, cinnamon)
Cook on griddle over medium heat until golden brown 
Remove from griddle and slice each sandwich into 4 strips
Serve with individual cups of syrup for dipping
