Banana French Toast

This morning a very good friend of mine came over and we made this yummy French toast together. The recipe is from Disney's The Princess and the Frog Tiana's Cookbook Recipes for Kids.

Banana French Toast

1 pound loaf French or Italian bread, cut into thick slices
1 to 2 bananas
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk (I used soy milk due to lactose issues)
1 to 2 tablespoons butter
1 to 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

First, cut a wide, deep slit down through the top crust of each bread slice. (I actually just cut the slits as I was cutting my loaf up. I would alternate cutting a slit and then cut the piece all the way through.)
Stuff each pocket with 3 to 4 banana slices. (I like to get as much as reasonably fits in the pocket of the bread)
In a shallow dish or pie plate, whisk together the eggs and milk. 
Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. 
Dip each bread slice in the egg mixture, turning it to coat both sides, and place it in the skillet.
Cook the French toast for 2 to 3 minutes on the first side until golden brown. 
Then use a spatula to flip the slices, and cook them for another 2 to 3 minutes. 
Serve with butter and maple syrup.
