Stuffed French Toast

February 1st, 2012

I really wanted to make this toast stuffed with Nutella.  My twins are allergic to many different nuts, so I assume they would be allergic to Nutella as well.  We had it with apricot preserves stuffed in the middle instead and it was delicious.  My boys devoured it.  Really simple to make and very satisfying on an early Saturday morning.  I can’t wait until we all sleep in on Saturday mornings and can eat this around 10:00 a.m.

Stuffed French Toast

Start with slices of good white bread.  You will want 2 slices per person.  I halved the recipe since we were also having bacon and eggs.  Spread about a tablespoon of either preserves, honey, peanut butter, Nutella, etc. between 2 slices of bread.

Using a circle cookie cutter or the dull edge of a glass, cut a circle out of each sandwich.

Mix together the eggs, milk, sugar, orange juice, butter, vanilla and salt in a bowl.  Dip the sandwiches in the egg mixture until they are well covered.

Heat a few tablespoons of canola oil in a large skillet or griddle over medium heat.  Add sandwiches and cook, turning once when browned.  Repeat with remaining oil and sandwiches if necessary.  Only takes a few minutes.  I’m thinking we might just have this for dinner one night soon.   It’s so good!
