Tonga Toast from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

Tonga Toast from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort Serves 4



  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar 

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon 


  • 4 large eggs 

  • 1 1/3 cup whole milk 

  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 

  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar 

Tonga Toast

  • 1 quart canola oil, for frying 

  • 1 loaf sourdough bread (uncut, 12 inches long) 

  • 2 large bananas, peeled 


For Sugar-Cinnamon:

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. Using caution, preheat oil to 350°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.
