My children love french toast. It is one of those breakfast options that seems like a lot of work, but really, it is simple and easy to make. And takes just as much time as pancakes!
What can be better than combining Nutella, strawberries, french toast and whipped cream? It is a sure breakfast winner!
You will need:
- Slices of bread (I used sliced french bread)
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 2tbsp sugar
- 1tbsp cinnamon
- Whipped Topping (softened)
Servings: 4 french toast ‘sandwiches’
Spread generous amount of Nutella onto 4 slices of bread. Top with remaining bread.
In bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar and cinnamon, mix/blend well. You can add more milk for less egginess.
Coat both side with egg mixture, allowing it to sit for about a minute or two to soak in the egg mixture. Let the excess mixture drip off of the bread.
In skillet, coat with nonstick cooking spray and turn heat on low. I prefer to cook my french toast on low heat to reduce burning of the outside and to ensure that the bread is completely cooked and not soggy. Let cook on low for about 2 minutes, turn over to make sure it is cooking. Continue to turn over once every 3-4 minutes until both sides are golden brown.
Slice each sandwich and top with whipped topping or whipped cream and fresh berries. This would be a perfect Valentine breakfast.
QUICK TIP: To decorate your plate, place a spoonful of Nutella into a plastic sandwich bag. Squeeze into the corner of the bag and clip the tip of the corner with scissors. ‘Pipe’ your design onto the plate before putting on the french toast and berries.
