My daughter loves when I make this stuffed French toast. You could add some sliced fruit to the sandwich if you'd like; try bananas or strawberries. Dust with powered sugar and serve with pancake syrup.

Instructions Checklist
  • Spread 1 tablespoon chocolate-hazelnut spread onto one side of each of 2 slices cinnamon bread; top each with another bread slice to make 2 sandwiches.

  • Beat milk, egg, and vanilla extract together in a shallow bowl until smooth. Soak each sandwich in the milk mixture until the bread is moistened, about 15 seconds per side.

  • Prepare a nonstick pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat.

  • Cook sandwiches in the hot pan until browned on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Flip sandwiches and continue cooking until other side is browned, about 1 minute more.

It's like dessert, for breakfast! I love Nutella, and have a major sweet tooth, so this one was right up my alley! No need for syrup. Goes great with bananas and strawberries as well. Yummo! Read More

This recipe is good. My family liked it. It was a little too sweet for me. I will make it again, but next time I think I’ll use less Nutella and regular bread (instead of cinnamon bread). Read More

Perfectly rich, gooey, & decadent! I served with just a little powdered sugar and some clementines and it was a nice treat for brunch. Read More

Awesome. Kid (and myself too) loved it very much. I stuffed in some banana pieces and sealed the edges by pressing with a fork. Then soaked in egg mixture and cooked per directions. Read More

I make french toast often. After reading through this recipe & watching the video I decided to offer it to my fussy eater. It was simple and fast to make. The taste was appealing to all senses! My fussy eater had a second piece! Read More

This recipe turned out great! I added raspberry jam to the toast, but I would highly recommend any type of fresh fruit such as strawberries or bananas. Adding some freshly grated orange zest would add a nice flavor as well!? Read More

This was good. I dusted with powdered sugar, and I didn't need to add any syrup. I used the cinnamon bread as suggested by the submitter. I think I would just use regular wheat bread next time and add just a little more Nutella in the sandwich. Thanks for the yummy idea for breakfast! Read More

So amazing! I made mine with wheat bread and added cinnamon since it was a icy snowy day we didn’t want to risk going out. We also added coconut homemade cool whip, strawberries, bananas, & coconut flakes. Read More
