You won’t believe your taste buds with this Bourbon Banana Nut Stuffed French Toast. Roasted bananas, creamy cheese, and cinnamon make a great way to start your weekend!


Units Scale
  • 1 Loaf Brioche, sliced 1 1/2″-2″ thick
  • 2 Bananas, sliced
  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
  • 2 Tbsp Bourbon
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Finely chopped Pecans
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • Maple Syrup


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place sliced bananas onto a non-stick baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes until the bananas start to gently caramelize. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
  2. While the bananas are baking, take each slice of brioche, using a sharp pointed and serrated knife, lay the slice flat and like you were slicing the bread horizontally, insert the knife flatly into the bread and slice a small pocket into the middle of the bread, ensuring you don’t puncture through the bread. Repeat with each slice of brioche. Set aside momentarily.
  3. In a bowl, mix together cooled bananas, bourbon, cinnamon, ¼ cup pecans, and cream cheese until smooth.
  4. With a spoon or knife, or a piping bag with a round tip and filled with banana mix, spread into the pocket of each bread slice.
  5. In another shallow bowl whisk together, milk, eggs and vanilla.
  6. Dip each slice of stuffed brioche into the egg wash and place into a heated, and non-stick sprayed pan over medium to medium-high heat. Cook until each side is deep golden brown. Flip and cook completely.
  7. Serve immediately with additional bananas and chopped pecans on top. Top with maple syrup.
