Nutella and Banana French Toast by What’s Bec Cooking

This is my second post in my WordPress Cooking Challenge.  To read more about the challenge click HERE.

I’ve been wanting to make stuffed French toast for a while now.  I’ve eaten a couple stuffed varieties, but never made anything at home myself.

When I saw Bec’s post on this Nutella banana version, my mouth watered.  It looked AMAZING.  I wanted to try it right away, but didn’t have Nutella. In fact, I’ve never had Nutella before.  (You have my permission to be shocked.)

For a treat, it was totally worth the price.  It has satisfied my sweet tooth on animal crackers and graham crackers the last couple weeks (delicious!), but this stuffed French toast is my favorite way to eat it so far!

I love that the egg mixture almost gets entirely used so you don’t have to waste it.  You might have just enough egg left for a regular piece of French toast.  🙂  To keep my sandwiches together better while cooking, I used two spatulas to flip them (just the first flip or two).  After that, they were stable enough to flip with just one spatula.

I was able to make both sandwiches at once in a large skillet, so I only used half the butter and oil.  I’m not sure if the oil was the reason, but they definitely did not burn!  I covered my skillet as well, to help ensure thorough cooking, and cooked over low heat.  I turned each sandwich 3-4 times.

This was the most decadent and delicious breakfast I’ve had in ages.  My kids ate their halves with syrup, and I ate mine just with powdered sugar.  Honestly though, I almost ate it fresh out of the pan without any added sugar.  The golden fried exterior paired perfectly with the sweeter Nutella and bananas.

I wished immediately after finishing my half that I had made more.  This was about as easy as regular French toast and so tasty!  I’ll be making this again!
