What is Tonga Toast?

Tonga Toast is thick-sliced sourdough French Toast that is stuffed with a banana. Then it is covered in cinnamon sugar and fried. This breakfast staple at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is amazing.

Servings: 4


  • 2 slices Sourdough bread cut 1½ inches thick
  • 1 Banana
  • 1/3 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • Vegetable oil


  • Put about four inches of oil or shortening into a good-sized pot
  • Heat the oil/shortening to 350ºF. While that is heating up, cut a small pocket (about 1 inch in length) in the side of each bread slice.
  • Cut your banana in half, then cut in half again lengthwise. Stuff two pieces of banana into the pocket you cut into each slice of bread.
  • In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon and sugar, then set aside.
  • In a bowl larger than your piece of bread, mix the egg, milk, and vanilla, then also set aside.
  • Place each piece of stuffed bread into the bowl with egg mixture and allow it to soak for a few seconds. Place soaked bread into the hot oil/shortening and fry on both sides until lightly browned.
  • When done, remove from oil and place on a plate lined with paper towels or a wire rack.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar before serving.
