Ingredient Notes and Substitutions
- sourdough bread– I recommend starting with a loaf of whole sourdough instead of pre-cut sourdough.
Most pre-sliced sourdoughs are cut thin, but you want a full loaf that you can cut into 4 thick slices.
- bananas- Use large, ripe bananas: they should be completely yellow with some brown spots. Once they are overripe, they become too soft to use.
- Owner- These are important for binding the batter together and helping the French toast become firmer when frying.
- Milch– Whole milk is perfect for this recipe because of its creaminess.
- cinnamon and granulated sugar- Both ingredients go in the batter mix, but you'll also make a delicious cinnamon-sugar mix to coat the toast after frying.
- vegetable oil- Use this to fry bread. Alternatively, you can use a truncation if you prefer.
Roasted Tonga Toast
First, be sure to use at least 4 inches of frying oil.
Sourdough slices are thick and float to the top as they cook; a deep skillet with oil keeps half of the slice submerged at all times. Just flip to cook the other half!
I recommend using acandy thermometerto ensure your oil reaches 375°F.
Also watch the temperature between batches - if it drops, bring it back up before adding another slice.
This Disney French toast is ready once it has reached a nice golden brown color.
Use a paper towel to blot up excess oil after frying to prevent the toast from getting soggy from the extra moisture.
Stuffed French Toast Recipe Tips and Tricks
- Create spaces to fill.Use a utility knife to cut 3-inch slits in the top of each sourdough disk. These slots will become the pockets to stuff the bananas.
- soak the slices.For best results, soak each slice of toast for about 5 minutes before grilling to give the batter enough time to soak into the bread.
To save time, you can soak a new slice in the batter while another slice is frying.
- Warm coat.Dip each slice of toasted bread into the cinnamon-sugar mixture immediately after frying.
The heat of frying helps the sugar coating to adhere to the bread, so make sure the sugar mixture is ready before you start frying.
Cookware you will need
- mixing bowls– You need a shallow bowl and a deep bowl. I like to keep different sizes on hand and this set has them all.
- casserole– I love this set and use it all the time. It is perfect for frying and above all I love it for my stews.
- Never- I love this set of 3 and use every pair of them. They are so handy and they grip surprisingly well!

- 4 grande Owner
- 1 1/2 bags whole milk
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 Gang sourdough bread,all
- 2 grande bananas
- 4 bags Vegetable oil or shortening for frying
- 3/4 Taxes granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoon cinnamon
In a large shallow bowl, mix together ¾ cup granulated sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon to make the cinnamon sugar. Put aside.
In a deep bowl, mix the eggs, milk, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon and 1 tablespoon sugar.
Cut both ends of the loaf of bread. Then cut the bread into four equal parts. At the top of each slice, use a knife to make a slit about 3 inches long across the top of the piece and deep enough to reach the bottom crust of the bread without cutting into the bottom crust.
Peel each plantain and cut in half lengthwise then widthwise to form each plantain into 4 pieces.
Glue two of the banana slices vertically onto the four prepared slices of bread.
Fill a heavy pot or Dutch oven with at least 4 inches of oil. Using a candy thermometer to continuously monitor the temperature, heat the oil to 375°F.(Video) Making the Tonga Toast Recipe from Disney World
While the oil is heating, dip one of the prepared slices of bread into the egg-milk mixture. Soak for 1-2 minutes, then flip and soak on the other side for another 1-2 minutes. The thickness of the slices and the texture of the yeast should withstand soaking for some time.
When the oil is hot, use tongs to lift the bread out of the dough to allow any excess dough to drip off, then carefully place the bread in the hot oil.
Fry for 1-2 minutes on each side, flipping the slice when golden. When the Tonga toast is golden all over, remove it from the hot oil and wipe it with kitchen paper to remove any oil drips.
While the toast is still hot, place it in the bowl of cinnamon sugar and toss to coat.
For the four Tonga toasts, continue to beat, fry and brush with cinnamon sugar.
Serve warm with maple syrup and/or strawberry compote or jam.
As with any frying, a Dutch oven works well to keep the oil at as constant a temperature as possible. You need at least 4 inches of oil here because the bread slices are so thick. The toast will float on top of the oil, so it's important that at least half of the slice stays submerged in the oil during cooking (and can then be flipped over to cook the other half).
Soaking the next piece of stuffed bread in the batter while the previous one is cooking has worked well. Soaking each piece for about 5 minutes seemed to allow the batter to penetrate most of the slice, creating a rich and delicious French toast.
You can use other types of baguette bread, but sourdough really stands up to beating and frying while keeping the bananas secure in the center.
