  1. Combine cream cheese and mascarpone in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Whisk the egg, milk and vanilla in a large, shallow bowl. 
  3. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add brown sugar; cook and stir until sugar is dissolved. Stir in liqueur. Bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, just until mixture begins to thicken.
  4. Add banana. Cook and toss, constantly, for 2-3 minutes or until banana is well coated. Remove from the heat. Transfer to a bowl; cool slightly. Wipe out skillet.
  5. Spread bread slices with reserved mascarpone mixture; layer one bread slice with banana mixture. Sprinkle with salt. Top banana with bread slice mascarpone side down. Dip sandwich into egg mixture, coating both sides. 
  6. Melt remaining butter in the same pan over medium-low heat. Toast sandwich for 2-4 minutes on each side or until bread is lightly golden brown and cheese is melted.
