Mom's Tips

November 5th, 2013 by Jim Field

  • 6 whole wheat hamburger buns
  • 1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese
  • 3 medium bananas, sliced
  • 6 eggs
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Cut buns into one inch cubes; place half in a 13″ x 9″ baking dish coated with cooking spray.  Cut cream cheese into 3/4 inch cubes; place over buns.  Top with bananas and remaining bun cubes.  In a large bowl, beat eggs.  Add milk, sugar, syrup and cinnamon; mix well.  Pour over bun mixture.  Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.  Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking.  Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Uncover; bake 25-30 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.  Let stand for ten minutes before serving.
