Foodie Friday: Nutella Stuffed French Toast

Hello Fellow Food Adventurers,2012-08-13 09.14.19

As Valentine’s Day approaches and you make plans for dinner or maybe a getaway for the weekend, why not make a delicious breakfast made with love and strawberry hearts for your valentine. This French toast is sure to satisfy your love’s tummy and their sweet tooth. And if you haven’t had Nutella before, I promise you are going to fall in love with it after making this.

Topping Ingredients:

  • 1 cup strawberry hearts (see how I made them here)
  • maple syrup
  • whipped cream (optional, see how I make homemade whipped cream here)

Batter Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Filling Ingredients

  • 1 cup of cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup of Nutella

Other Ingredients

  • 6, 1 1/2 inch thick slices of day-old or stale country loaf, brioche or challah bread
  • Butter, as needed

How To Put It Together:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine all of the batter ingredients in a large bowl, mixing well until incorporated. Keep it refrigerated until ready to use.
  3. Mix together the cream cheese and Nutella until completely combined.
  4. Slice your bread into 1 1/2 inch slices and cut a slit in the middle to put your filling.
  5. Smear about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the filling inside the bread.
  6. Dip bread into batter mixture, allow to soak for about 30 seconds on each side, and then remove to a cooling rack that is sitting on a sheet pan, and allow to sit for 1 minute.
  7. Heat a large saute pan and then add butter.
  8. Cook until golden brown on both sides, approximately 2 minutes per side.
  9. Remove from pan and place on rack in the oven for 5 minutes and serve immediately with the toppings.

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Eat Well and Adventure On,

  1. This reminds me of Paris where Nutell is King!

  2. This is such a cute idea for Valentine’s Day brunch. Or maybe I need to start making all my breakfasts with cute hearts 🙂
