- large eggs
- whole milk
- Slices of bread. We used white bread
- white sugar
- ground cinnamon
How to make Nutella French Toast:
- Combine the eggs and milk. In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs and milk until the mixture is well combined. Set the dish aside for later.
- Prepare the bread. Spread a couple of tablespoons of nutella over four of the pieces of bread. Top with the remaining slices.
- Cut the bread into slices. Slice each sandwich into three pieces and dip each piece in the egg mixture.
- Cook the French Toast. Place the French toast slices in a frying pan and cook until golden brown on all sides.
- Make the topping. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and roll each piece of French toast in the sugar mixture until evenly coated.
- Serve. This is best served right away. Enjoy.
French Toast Topping ideas:
- Fresh strawberries
- Powdered Sugar
- Maple Syrup
- Whipped Cream
- Drizzle of warm Nutella
How to store:
While this dish is best served fresh, you can store leftover French toast in the fridge for up to 3 days. Simply reheat in the microwave until heated all the way through.
If you prefer a crispier texture, reheat in the oven or skillet. Don’t use a toaster oven because it will likely result in a mess due to the filling inside.
Can you freeze this recipe?
Yes, you can. Prepare and cook the French Toast as normal.
Then allow to completely cool. Place inside a freezer container or bag up to 2 months.
I suggest placing wax paper between the pieces of French Toast.
What kind of bread should I use for French toast?
We used white bread as this is a popular option. White bread has a light taste so it allows the flavors of the ingredients to soak in.
It also cooks very quickly and balances out the Nutella well.
Other ideas include:
- Brioche bread
- French Banquette
To make this dish a little healthier, you can use whole wheat bread instead of white bread. If you do this, however, you will need to give the bread extra time to soak up the egg mixture.
- Add fresh fruit to the filling before cooking. Diced strawberries would be delicious.
- Try adding a tablespoon of jelly or peanut butter to the Nutella mixture.
- Mix together cream cheese and Nutella and then place inside the French Toast. This is a rich and indulgent combination everyone will enjoy.
- Serve as a dessert type dish with a scoop of ice cream on top. Drizzle more Nutella and top with berries.
- Dairy free option. You can replace the whole milk with almond milk or coconut milk. Simply substitute the amount needed for this non dairy option.
Tips and Tricks:
- Don’t use a bread that is too thin or the stuffed French toast will be soggy. Likewise, do not use a bread that is too hard or it will not soak up as much liquid.
- The secret to getting the golden edges is to preheat your pan before using.
- Day old bread is best in this recipe. Fresh bread dissolves more quickly in the egg mixture and becomes soggy. This is a great way to use bread that is getting stale. It will make fabulous French toast.
- Be careful that you do not soak the bread too long in the mixture. This will result in the French toast losing its shape during cooking.
- While we like to be generous with the Nutella, you don’t want to be excessive. Placing too much filling in the middle will cause it to come out when frying.
This recipe is delicious.
