My boys love Nutella sandwiches.
They would eat them for every meal if I let them. As it is, they eat Nutella sandwiches for lunch nearly everyday (the days they don’t are they days I prepare myself for lots of whining and complaining and feed them something awful like hot dogs or mac & cheese).
My boys also love French toast. Bread drenched in syrup? Perfect.
So naturally, I figured they would go gaga over Nutella Stuffed French Toast. I mean, this stuff is a kid’s dream!
You know where I’m going with this, right?
They cried. They whined. They didn’t want “Tella Toast”! They wanted a regular Nutella sandwich!
Some days a Mama just can’t win.
So in this instance, my husband and I very much enjoyed some “Tella Toast” and I’m sure you will, too!
Nutella-Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast
An Amy’s Cooking Adventures Original Recipe
12 slices 100% whole wheat bread
2 (ish) ounces cream cheese, softened
3 tbsp lowfat milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Whipped Cream (homemade or store bought)
Preheat an electric skillet to medium heat.
In a large shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Set aside.
Spread about 1 tablespoon of Nutella and 1 tablespoon of cream cheese into the center of 6 slices of bread. Top with the remaining bread slices and cut with a Cut-and-Seal (or something similar).
Dredge each Nutella pocket through the egg mixture and place onto the hot skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Serve topped with whipped cream and strawberries.
