    I've never tired it before, but I have the recipe from my "Delicious Disney" Cookbook.

    1 cup sugar
    2 teaspoons cinnamon
    1 loaf sourdough bread (8 inches long)
    2 bananas, peeles
    1 quart canola oil, for fryinig

    1. Mix the sugar and cinnamon with a fork until thoroughly blended. Set aside.
    2. Slice the bread into four 2-inch-thick slices.
    3. Cut each banana in half crosswise, then each piece lengthwise.
    4. Place a bread slice flat on the counter and tear out just enough from the middle (do not tear away all the way through) to stuff half a banana into; repeat with each bread slice.
    5. In a large pot or a deep fryer, heat the oil to 350 degrees F; use a candy thermometer to make certian the oil does not get any hotter, or it will burn.
    6. Gently place on bread slice into the oil for 1 minute or until light brown.
    7. Turn and fry for another minute on the other side.
    8. Remove bread from the pot and toss it in the sugar and cinnamon mixture.
    9. Repeat for each piece.

    Wooooo hooooo! Thanks guys so much! I'd love to invite you all over for breakfast but I don't think you'd want to come all the way to Idaho for it. I'd rather have it in Florida but thats just me.

    I'm sorry I guess I just don't get this step. Could you explain it please?

    This is the reciepe from allears.net....it says to cut a one inch pocket into one side of each bread slice, that makes more sense then tearing out the middle.


    Tonga Toast


    Kona Cafe
    Polynesian Resort












    Ingredients:

    2 or 4 slices sourdough bread, cut 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick
    1 banana
    1/3 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 egg
    1/4 cup milk
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    oil or shortening for frying
    whipped butter and/or syrup

    Method:
    Cut a 1-inch pocket in one side of each bread slice. Cut banana in half crosswise, then split each piece lengthwise. Remove peel and stuff two pieces of fruit in each pocket of bread; set aside. Mix sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Mix together well the egg, milk and vanilla.
    Heat about 4 inches of oil in a pan to 350 F. Dip stuffed bread into egg/milk mixture and let it soak a few seconds to let penetrate bread. Fry bread on both sides in hot oil until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels or wire rack. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and serve.


    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    I think that is what the recipe i have means, but ya "tearing out the middle" is kinda strange sounding

    Tonga Toast YUMMO and I agree you probably need to be sitting in Kona to get the full effect :-)
