Ingredients
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 4 very ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 8 slices egg bread
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
  • Maple syrup or jam, for serving
Directions

In a large shallow bowl, using a fork, beat the eggs until lightly frothy. Stir in the milk and set aside. Peel the bananas into a small bowl and mash them with a fork. Stir in the walnuts and the nutmeg.

Spread the banana mixture over the 1/2 of the bread slices, leaving a 1/4-inch border uncovered on all edges. Top with the remaining bread slices and press down gently to seal.

Place 2 sandwiches in the egg mixture and press down gently. Turn over and let soak for a moment until evenly saturated on both sides. Repeat with the other 2 remaining sandwiches.

In a frying pan or on a griddle, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Place the sandwiches on griddle and fry until the undersides are golden brown, about 2 minutes. Add the remaining butter, flip the sandwiches with a spatula and fry until golden brown.

To serve place the toast on plates and dust with confectioners' sugar. Serve with maple syrup or jam.
