For Strawberry-Banana sauce, combine all ingredients in a saucepan, and cook for 5 to 6 minutes over medium heat, until warmed through.
Trim a thin slice off the ends of the sandwich rolls. Cut the rolls in half crosswise. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the milk, vanilla, cinnamon and eggs. Dip bread slices in the milk mixture and cook on a nonstick griddle over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Garnish with fresh mint, and dust with powdered sugar.
