Tonga Toast Recipe from Kona Cafe

By Sarah

Tonga Toast is one of the most popular breakfast dishes on Disney property. Served at Kona Cafe at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, it’s a classic take on French Toast. Unfortunately, you can’t get this dish at Disney gluten free, but with some at-home substitutions, you can easily recreate this classic breakfast dish at home safely.

I recommend using Bread SRSLY’s gluten free (and vegan!) sourdough bread to make this at home.

You can see me walk through this recipe step-by-step in my YouTube video below.
