Banana and Pecan Stuffed French Toast

4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
Pinch cinnamon
Salt and pepper for seasoning
2 bananas
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon allspice
4 slices french bread, or favorite white bread
Butter for frying pan
Icing Sugar for finishing

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees C.

With a fork, beat the eggs, milk, cinnamon and salt and pepper together in a wide bowl.

In a separate bowl, smash the bananas and add chopped pecans and allspice.

Spread the banana filling on two of the slices of bread.  Cover with the other slice and soak the sandwiches in the egg mixture for a few minutes turning to coat both sides.

Melt the butter in the frying pan over medium heat and cook on both sides until brown.  Place both sandwiches on a cookie sheet and place in oven for about  10 minutes to heat through.

Dust with icing sugar.  Serve with maple syrup.

Variation: add chocolate chips to the banana mixture
