Nutella French Toast with Strawberries



Look at this. Just...look at it. You need this. You know you do. And with Valentine's Day 2 days away, now is the perfect time! Doesn't that just scream 'I love you!'?

This tasted exactly like a chocolate covered strawberry, but in breakfast form. It was soooooooo stinkin' good. Definitely in the top 5 'Best Breakfast's Ever'...and it's not even eggs!

If you're a fan of Nutella, then this is definitely a recipe for you. Chocolate and strawberries...they were made for each other. I will absolutely be making this again...soon. Like, tomorrow :)

 Well, hope you all have a wonderfully romantical Valentine's Day and a great week!

'Nutella French Toast with Strawberries'

Ingredients

1 cup sliced strawberries
2 teaspoons sugar
Juice of half a lemon
4 slices of bread (I used Italian)
About 1/2 cup Nutella
1 large egg
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
butter (for the pan)
Powdered sugar for serving

Directions

1. Combine the strawberries, sugar and lemon juice in a bowl. Toss to coat and set aside to macerate at room temperature.

2. Spread desired amount of Nutella over 2 slices of bread. Top each with the remaining bread. Heat a large skillet over medium heat.

3. In a shallow dish or pie plate, whisk together the egg and milk. Whisk in the melted butter, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the heated skillet and swirl to coat.

4. Dip each sandwich into the egg mixture, soaking for 30 to 40 seconds per side. Add the slices to the pan in a single layer, taking care not to crowd the skillet. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until light golden brown. Flip and continue cooking an additional 1-2 minutes. Add more butter as needed.

5. Transfer to a plate, dust with powdered sugar, then top with strawberries. Serve immediately.

  11. Hi how much butter are you supposed to use when whisking in with the egg and milk etc? because it doesn't specify an amount, and just says butter (for the pan)!
    Thanks :D

  12. The 2 tablespoons of melted butter listed in the ingredients are what you whisk in with the egg and the milk. As for the butter that goes into the pan, you can add however much or little you like :)

  17. I made these this morning as a Christmas Eve breakfast for my boyfriend and he is a picky eater but loved these. So simple of a recipe but when I posed the pic on instagram my friends were overly impressed. Love nutella and this is a twist on the typical french toast. Will definitely make again
