  1. Create a pocket about 2/3 of the way into each slice of bread by cutting along an edge. Fill pockets with 2 or 3 banana slices each.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat together eggs, water, milk, vanilla extract, orange liqueur and orange zest. Dip the bread slices in the mixture, allowing slices to become saturated.
  3. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Place a few slices at a time in the skillet, and cook, turning once, until both sides are golden brown. Dust with confectioners' sugar to serve.

I didn't have any French bread so I just put the bananas between two pieces of regular bread. It worked fairly well but the French bread would work better.

My family requests this breakfast dish every Christmas. Easy to make, smells so delicious cooking, and it is so rich and filling!

This was a great french toast recipe even without the bananas. I made a few slices with the bananas and a few without and they both were excellent. The banana filled slices were good but but I...

I've made this twice- once without zest and once with texas toast bread- both times it was fantastic! My husband, son and I all love it.

This recipe caught my eye as I was trying to come up with crowd pleasing recipes to make during our vacation. I didn't have the liqueur and subbed the orange with lemon zest. Along with the bana...
