Nutella Stuffed French Toast

Nutella stuffed French toastI love French toast. One of my favorite food guilty pleasures is French toast from IHOP. Have I ever told you that? I loved IHOP in college but as I moved further south, it became apparent to me that IHOP was no longer going to be in my vocabulary. That’s right. I was in Waffle House territory now. Yes, I indulge in Waffle House every now and then (mmmm hash browns) but sometimes I just want French toast. And I’m sorry Waffle House, you can’t give me what I need all of the time. When I can’t get my IHOP fix, I do enjoy making  my own breakfast at home. Recently, I tried my hand at Nutella stuffed French toast – whoa.

John’s initial reaction when I told him about the French toast was shock. He knows that even though I sometimes have a sweet tooth, I typically don’t do a lot of sweetness for breakfast. This, my loves, was delicious! I mentioned not too long ago that I’m new to the whole Nutella game. I guess you could say I’m a little behind in my food trends – whatever. I started my Nutella experimenting with some Nutella hot chocolate and that did not disappoint.

Nutella stuffed French toastSince I have a very large container of Nutella in the cabinet, I wanted to start thinking of ways I could use it. I mean, you’re not supposed to let it go to waste, right? So I started thinking and I eventually came up with stuffed French toast. Sure it’s not a brand new recipe but it’s new to me and I was excited to see what I came up with. Topping the toast with your favorite fruits takes it to a whole other level.
