Nutella-Stuffed French Toast
4 slices brioche bread,
at least 2 inches thick
(or cinnamon, cinnamon
raisin or egg bread)
½ cup Nutella
2 large eggs
1 cup 1% milk
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup fresh berries
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Cut a slit in the side of each bread slice to make a
pocket. Pipe or spoon 2 tablespoons Nutella into
the center of each bread slice.
In a bowl, whisk eggs until smooth, then whisk
in milk and vanilla.
Pour the egg batter into a shallow dish. Lay a
filled slice of bread in the batter and let soak.
Turn and repeat. The bread should be slightly
wet but not soggy or falling apart.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a nonstick skillet over
medium heat. Place the batter-soaked bread in
the hot skillet and cook for 1½ minutes on each
side, turning once, until golden brown.
Transfer to a sheet pan and bake for 5-6 minutes,
or until heated through.
To serve, top each piece of stuffed French toast
with ¼ cup fresh berries. Makes 4 servings.
