- 10 slices sandwich bread
- 3 bananas, sliced thinly
- 3-4 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon sugar (for sautéing bananas)
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1/3 cup sugar (for coating)
- 1/2 – 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Powdered sugar (for dusting)
- Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and melt 1 – 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter. Add sliced banana and 1 tablespoon sugar. Sauté until golden.
- In a separate bowl, combine the remaining sugar with cinnamon and set aside. In another bowl, beat the eggs with milk and set aside.
- Remove the crusts from the bread slices and flatten them with a rolling pin.
- Spread about 1-2 teaspoons of the banana mixture along one edge of each bread slice. Brush the opposite side with the prepared egg wash.
- Gently but tightly roll up the bread around the banana mixture, ensuring the roll is sealed.
- Melt about 1 tablespoon of butter in a pan. Dip the rolls in the egg mixture, ensuring they are well coated, and place them seam side down in the pan. Cook 3-4 rolls at a time.
- When one side is browned, turn the roll a quarter turn and continue cooking until all sides are browned.
- Wipe the pan with a paper towel between batches and repeat the process until all rolls are cooked.
- Finally, roll the cooked rolls in the sugar-cinnamon mixture or dust them with powdered sugar.
- Serve warm for a delightful and cozy breakfast treat.
