Instructions

  1. Combine cream cheese and mascarpone in a small bowl. Set aside.

  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 just until mixture begins to thicken. Add banana. Cook and toss, constantly, for 2-3 minutes or until banana is well coated. Remove from heat. Transfer to a bowl; cool slightly. Wipe out skillet.
  4. Spread reserved mascarpone mixture onto each bread slice. Layer 1 bread slice with banana mixture. Sprinkle with salt. Top with remaining bread slice mascarpone side down. Dip sandwich into reserved milk mixture, coating both sides.
