    Not only do I have the recipe but also a video showing you how to make the delicious Tonga Toast :D


    [video=youtube;MKp0gk_gMHY]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKp0gk_gMHY&hd=1[/video]​

    Serves 4

    INGREDIENTS

    Sugar-Cinnamon Ingredients:

    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    2 teaspoons cinnamon

    Batter Ingredients:

    4 large eggs
    1 1/3 cup whole milk
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 tablespoon granulated sugar

    Tonga Toast Ingredients:

    1 quart canola oil, for frying
    1 loaf sourdough bread (uncut, 12 inches long)
    2 large bananas, peeled

    INSTRUCTIONS

    For cinnamon-sugar:

    Mix sugar and cinnamon in medium bowl (large enough to roll toast) with a fork until thoroughly blended. Set aside.

    For batter:

    Whip eggs in medium bowl (large enough to dip toast) until well beaten. Add milk, cinnamon, and sugar. Mix well and set aside.

    For Tonga toast:

    1. Preheat oil to 350 degrees F in a large pot or a deep fryer. (If using a large pot, use a candy thermometer to make certain the oil does not get any hotter or it will burn.)
    2. Slice the bread into four three-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 all the way through) to stuff half a banana into; repeat with each bread slice.
    5. Dip stuffed bread into batter, covering both sides, allowing excess batter to drip off bread and place carefully into hot oil.
    6. Cook 4-5 minutes until golden brown. If needed, turn toast over after 2 minutes and cook for another 2 minutes on other side. Remove and drain excess oil.
    7. Roll toast in cinnamon-sugar. Repeat for each piece of toast. ​

    Way, way, WAY too much work! :eek: If I'm going to have it, I'll let Disney do the cooking. :yes:

    (It's too much on the sweet side for me).

    I've been known to order it once or twice. It is delicious, but is exceedingly sweet.

    I've actually made this after I saw it on the Disney website. Please note that I've never had it at Disney before so I don't have anything to compare it to really. The only problem I had was the sourdough bread, it was very crumbly. I think it may have been the kind I got. And I had to use a regular pan. But I thought that it was very yummy. But be warned, I did manage to set the fire alarm off for the first time in my life.:embarassed2:

    I had Tonga Toast for the first time this trip... it was DELICIOUS!!!

    I rarely like sugary food for breakfast, but this was just perfect! and the 100% Kona coffee was also just perfect!

    I've had it once. It is good but very sweet. I need more protein at breakfast. I did have the macadamia pancakes last time and they were fantastic.

    It is lovely but it is oh so sweet. I had a bite of my son's and loved it but I don't think I could eat a quarter of it. Don't forget the sauce they serve with it is really the strawberry soup from 1900 Park Fare.

    I wonder if I just tried it on a bad day? I tried it once and, try as I might, I just could NOT enjoy it. I can't quite sort out why...but it was just not for me....

    Maybe I should give it another try - from all accounts, I should LOVE this!

    Same here, Becca. I like the ingredients, and seriously WHO doesn't love fried food (done right, of course) but I just simply didn't enjoy this. :sorry: I know "everyone" loves it, but it's kinda' like Dole Whips... everyone but I. :sorry:

    I think it's too big and too sweet. Plus I've come to the conclusions that I do not like bananas warm.
