Nutella French toast with strawberries

I give my wife full credit for coming up with this one. She was browsing around for breakfast recipes and spotted the word “Nutella”, followed shortly by “strawberries”. She proclaimed that we needed to make some sort of French toast sandwich thing using those ingredients, and that sounded like a splendid idea to me. Here’s what we came up with.

Skip to the short version


Ingredients:

  • some kind of bread (we used King’s Hawaiian)
  • Nutella
  • fresh strawberries
  • sugar
  • eggs
  • milk
  • vanilla extract
  • butter (salted or unsalted)


Directions:

” You’ll know you’re close to done when the Nutella starts to get melty “

Wash and cut up the strawberries into cubes or slices or whatever you like and set aside. If you prefer your strawberries a little sweeter and slightly more syrupy, mix the strawberry bits with a couple of tablespoons of sugar first.

Spread some Nutella on a slice of bread and stick a second piece of bread on top to make a sandwich. A little Nutella goes a long way, but if you’re in the mood for gooey chocolate overload then by all means pile it on. Mix up some French toast dredge (a few eggs, a few tablespoons of milk, and a dash of vanilla) and you’re ready for breakfast magic.

Warm up a skillet to medium heat and melt a pat of butter in it. The skillet should be hot enough to sizzle the butter, but not much more than that. Put a Nutella sandwich into the egg mixture, making sure to coat both sides, and carefully place it in the skillet. Cook slowly, flipping once when the bottom is toasty and delish looking. You’ll know you’re close to done when the Nutella starts to get melty. Remove from skillet, top with strawberries, and nom.

Epic breakfast win.
