Peach and Banana Strata

This is totally inspired by the Banana-Stuffed French Toast at $5 Dinners.  I decided to try out her recipe for my February article, then changed it according to what I had on hand.

Peach and Banana Strata


4 slices of bread (a great way to use stale bread!)

4 eggs

1/2 cup milk (I used rice milk so my daughter could try this!)

1 mashed banana

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/2 cups peaches, frozen or canned


Tear bread apart and place into a large loaf pan.  Stir together eggs, milk, bananas, brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Pour mixture over the bread. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours to set. To cook, bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes, or until eggs begin to golden on top.  Let cool a few minutes before serving.




This would probably be good with some blueberries, too, but I didn’t think about that until later.  Especially because I still have a whole gallon-sized freezer bag full of blueberries from this summer’s picking.  Thanks again to $5 Dinners for the idea!
