My addiction to Nutella began over 30 years ago... My newest way to savor it, Nutella Stuffed French Toast, enjoy the recipe!

I was raised in a family that believed Nutella on toast was a well balanced breakfast. Who am I to complain? I was raised on an item that was rarely even found here in the States. Unless you had access to a German Deli, you were at the mercy of either traveling abroad to buy it, or rely on friends and family who live in Europe to send you some. Thank goodness we had both family and friends in Germany that kept us well stocked. Now you can find it in almost every grocery store, thank goodness!!! So now I begin the tradition with my kids, Nutella on toast for breakfast. the only difference is that I do try and balance it with fruit and yogurt.

So a few weeks ago, I stumbled across a fancy shmancy recipe for Nutella stuffed french toast. For our family it was over the top, requiring a Corn Flakes crust. I came up with a much simpler recipe. I hope you like it! This recipe makes 8 pieces of French Toast.

Nutella French Toast
16 slices of Texas Toast
4 eggs beaten
1/4 cup cream
1-3 teaspoons vanilla extract (depends on how much you want)
confectioners sugar

Take eight pieces of the Texas Toast and slather one side with Nutella. Place two slices (one coated in Nutella, one plain) together to make the eight sandwiches. In a large shallow bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, and vanilla. Take a sandwich and dip it in the egg mixture, make sure you coat both sides. Heat your skillet to medium and cover it in butter. Cook the sandwiches for just a few minutes on each side. You are looking for a golden color.

When you are ready to serve place sliced strawberries on top, and dust the entire meal with confectioners sugar. 


  1. my favorite,,, bananas wrapped in a Crepe' and slathered with Nutella... yep, gotta love our German traditions...

  2. Sounds delicious, but, at the risk of sounding dumb, what is Texas Toast? Aunt Linda

    1. It is white bread that is just sliced very thick. Nothing fancy about it, the thick bread just really holds the custard well, without falling apart. It will be labeled Texas Toast...
