Banana Split French Toast

1 (10-ounce) jar maraschino cherries
1 (16-ounce) loaf French bread
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
1/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
4 eggs
1/3 cup milk
4 small ripe bananas, halved lengthwise
2 cups frozen whipped topping (about 2/3 of an 8-ounce
container), thawed
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Maple syrup, warmed

Cut 4 maraschino cherries in half; set aside for garnish. Chop
remaining cherries. Cut off and discard ends of bread loaf. Slice
remaining loaf into 16 (1/2-inch to 3/4-inch) slices.

Combine cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl;
beat with an electric mixer at medium speed 3 to 4 minutes, or
until creamy. By hand, stir in pineapple, chocolate chips and
chopped cherries; mix well.

Spray a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine eggs and milk in a shallow bowl or pie plate. Dip one side
of 1 bread slice into egg mixture. Place on baking pan, dipped side
down. Gently spread with 1/8 of cream cheese mixture; top with a
banana half. Repeat with 7 more slices.

Dip one side of each of the remaining 8 bread slices in egg
mixture. Place, dipped side up, on top of banana Bake in a
preheated 350-degree oven 35 to 40 minutes, or until tops are light
golden brown and centers are set.

To serve, top each serving with 1/4 cup whipped topping, 1-1/2
teaspoons chopped pecans and 1 reserved cherry half. Serve with
maple syrup.
