  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon light-brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Coarse salt
  • 4 slices white sandwich bread
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 bananas, peeled, halved crosswise and then lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting


  1. In a shallow bowl, whisk together egg, milk, brown sugar, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt; set aside.

  2. Spread each slice of bread with 1 tablespoon peanut butter. Dividing evenly, sandwich banana pieces between slices of bread.

  3. In a medium nonstick skillet, heat butter over medium. One at a time, dip both sides of sandwiches in egg mixture, and place in skillet. Cook until golden brown, 1 to 3 minutes per side.

  4. Transfer sandwiches to a work surface. Using a serrated knife, cut sandwiches into quarters. Dust with confectioners' sugar, and serve immediately.
