Tonga Toast recipe

INSTRUCTIONS:

Sugar Cinnamon

  • Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl (large enough to roll toast) with a fork until fully blended. The set aside.

Batter

  • Whip eggs in a medium bowl (large enough to dip toast) until well beaten.
  • Add milk, cinnamon, and sugar. Mix well and set aside.

Tonga Toast

  • Preheat oil to 350F in a large pot or a deep fryer (If you are using a large pot, use a candy thermometer to make certain the oil does not get any hotter or it will burn).
  • Slice the bread into four 3 inch thick slices.
  • Cut each banana in half crosswise, then each piece lengthwise.
  • Place a bread slice flat on the counter and tear out just enough from the middle (do not tear all the way through) to stuff half a banana into; repeat with each bread slice.
  • Dip stuffed bread into batter, covering both sides, allowing excess batter to drip off bread and place carefully into hot oil.
  • Cook 4-5 minutes until golden brown. If needed, turn toast over after 2 minutes and cook for another 2 minutes on other side. Remove and drain excess oil.
  • Roll toast in cinnamon-sugar. Repeat for each piece of toast.

Enjoy!
