Nutella Stuffed French Toast

Bread, stuffed with nutty goodness. Nuff said.

A couple weeks ago I made Cream Cheese and Raspberry stuffed French Toast. Pretty tasty, but Davin doesn’t care for Cream Cheese. But…he does like Nutella.

Like all my recipes, it’s not science. No really, I just throw shit in a bowl and mix it up. So make it how you want. Traditional stuffed French Toast is exactly that, stuffed. I like to keep things simple. Oh, and I’m cheap. So instead of buying an $8 loaf of bread, filleting each piece and filling with super sticky Nutella, I used Texas Toast, which you can find at most Walmarts or local grocery stores. I simply lathered up one side nice and thick with Nutella, then made a sandwich out of it.

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter (melted)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • salt for taste
  • Texas Toast or other thick bread

Wisk all ingredients together. Cover one side of a piece of bread with Nutella. Add another piece of bread to make a sandwich. In a shallow bowl, dip both sides of bread in mixture. Grill both sides until golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, add syrup, serve and enjoy.

For me, this was pretty sweet. A lot sweet. A little Nutella goes a long ways. You were warned. I think this would be great with some fresh raspberries or blueberries on top of it!

Are you a Nutella fan?

Is It?

Well, is it?

We all say it; “It is what it is”. But is it, really? I don’t think so. I say, “It Is What You Make It.”

I think that’s just an excuse. I think that’s just us being lazy. If you don’t like the way something is, do something about it.

You are smart. You are strong. You are a voice. Be heard.
