Cocoa Almond & Banana Stuffed French Toast

  • 2 TJ's Bananas, sliced
  • 1 cup TJ's Milk
  • 4 TJ's Eggs
  • 2 tsp TJ's Ground Cinnamon
  • 1-2 Tbsp TJ's Unsalted Butter
  • 3 Tbsp TJ's Short Stack Pancake Syrup
  • 4-5 TJ's Strawberries, sliced into heart shapes
  • Make a deep cut into each slice of bread to create a pocket, and stuff generously with cocoa almond spread and bananas. Whisk milk, eggs and cinnamon together in a medium dish. Melt butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. While skillet is heating, dip each side of the stuffed bread pocket into the egg mixture then fry in batches until golden brown on both sides. Top each slice with another layer of cocoa almond spread, sliced bananas and syrup. Garnish the plate with fresh strawberries and enjoy!
