This french-toast sandwich tastes great grilled at dessert time.


  • 1 large egg

  • ¼ cup whole milk

  • 1 tablespoon light-brown sugar

  • teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • Coarse salt

  • 4 slices white sandwich bread

  • ¼ 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.
