Nutella Stuffed French Toast


Seriously, how delicious does THAT look?!? 

Assuming, of course, that you like french toast. And Nutella. And strawberries. lol 

This is now officially one of my daughter's favorites. How do I know this, you ask? Well, because after taking the first bite, she sighed and said to me "Mom, you are like an angel that makes the finest foods in all of Heaven." And no, I am not joking, I freaking swear to you she actually said that! 

I was half cracking up and half like awwwwww

The things that come out of her mouth sometimes. UGH! So cute!

     Anyways, there is no need for a crazy lengthy story or description about this, all you need is the recipe. It is THAT good. And simple. But not healthy. Hey, two out of three ain't bad.

You Need:
  • a loaf of day old Vienna Bread
  • 3 eggs and 1 yolk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • splash of vanilla
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • Nutella
  • Strawberries (optional, to top with)
  1. Crack your eggs and the yolk into a wide shallow bowl and whisk together well with the heavy cream, vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar, and salt.
  2. Place a small amount of butter (or non stick spray) in a skillet over medium heat. Slice your bread into 1 1/2 to 2 inch thick slices. Now take each slice of bread and make a horizontal slice into the side of the bread, like you were going to butterfly it. But do NOT butterfly it. You just want to make a little pouch for that delicious Nutella to reside in.
  3. Fill each pouch with however much Nutella you want, giving it a GENTLE pat down to spread it a bit. Coat both sides of each slice of bread in the egg mixture and place in skillet, being careful not to overcrowd.
  4. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, flip and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes until golden.
  5. Top with sliced strawberry. (And powdered sugar, butter and syrup, or whipped cream if you so desire. Whatever you'd like!)
  6. Serve it up and wait for the Mmmmmmm's. :)
