  • 2 thick (1-1⁄2 inch) slices Italian bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1⁄4 cup half and half
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Powdered sugar (for serving)
  • Maple syrup (for serving)


In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, half and half, cinnamon and vanilla extract.

Make a slit halfway through each bread slice with a knife – this will be the “pocket” for the filling. Soak bread in the egg mixture for 5-7 minutes or until soggy, flipping half way through.

Set EGG for indirect cooking (with convEGGtor) at 350°F/177°C.

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a Half Moon Cast Iron Griddle. Toast bread in the skillet for 7 minutes, flipping occasionally, until each side is lightly browned. Remove from heat and set aside.

Fold bananas into the ricotta mixture. Spoon the mixture into the slit in each piece of bread. Drizzle with maple syrup and a dash of powdered sugar. Enjoy!
