Banana-Nutella Stuffed Croissant
Vie de France
1 large Vie de France butter croissant
4 tablespoons cream cheese,
2 tablespoons Nutella
1/2 banana, sliced into rounds
3 tablespoons granulated
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon rum
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Confectioners’ sugar (optional)
Fresh fruit (optional)
Slice croissant lengthwise almost all the way through. Spread cream cheese on both
sides. Spread Nutella on top of cream cheese.
Toss banana slices with brown sugar and place in an ovenproof pan. Put under a hot
broiler for about 30 seconds, or until the sugar melts. Place banana slices on top of
Nutella and close the croissant.
In a bowl, combine egg, milk, sugar, rum and vanilla; mix until well blended. Dunk
the croissant into the batter, soaking well.
Heat a sauté pan over medium heat and coat with a little butter. Add the croissant
and cook like French toast, turning once. Top with confectioners’ sugar and fresh fruit,
if desired. Makes 1 serving.
