one of those days [Recipe: Strawberry & Nutella Stuffed French Toast]

strawberry nutella stuffed french toast 1

Have you had one of those days when you feel like it’s absolutely imperative to start the day on a sweet note, but a nondescript french toast dusted prettily with powdered sugar just simply won’t cut it? Yet at the same time, a voice;- Skinny Conscience, I believe his name was;- tells you no one gets away with having chocolate for breakfast, without having judgmental peering eyes, and the inevitable guilt to last till lunch time. And then you wonder who to listen to; the enticing sweet palate you had found yourself waking up with, or the aforementioned nagging voice raining on your sweet parade.

And then, an a-ha light bulb moment: well, it isn’t technically considered having bad, over-the-top decadent chocolate for breakfast, if it involves some sort of fruit, does it?

Let’s just say I had one of those days, and I don’t know if it was the half-baked reasoning I had conjured, or simply because these stuffed french toasts were that good, but guilt was the furthest from my mind. In fact, just between you and me, I’m already looking forward to the next time I welcome a day-old bread. Thick crusty bread enveloping juicy tangy strawberries, perfectly juxtaposed with occasional bursts of sweet melted chocolate-hazelnut spread;- if that’s not tantalising enough for you, I really don’t want to know.

Strawberry & Nutella Stuffed French Toast
(serves two)

2 burger buns, or any thick bread
1 egg
1⁄3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1⁄2 tsp ground cinnamon
6 – 10 pieces of strawberries, sliced
4 tablespoons Nutella

Slice the buns midway to create a pocket, being careful not to cut all the way through.
Drop 2 tablespoons of Nutella in each pocket you’ve created, and spread it on both sides.
Stuff the sliced strawberries in the pocket all the way in. Do not overfill.
In a bowl, combine the egg, milk, vanilla and cinnamon together.
Heat a lightly-greased griddle or skillet over medium-high heat.
Dunk each burger bun in the egg mixture, soaking both sides.
Place on pan, and cook on both sides until golden. Serve warm.

    Let’s take Skinny Conscience out back and beat him over the head with some cinnamon rolls.

    There will be one punnet less in the ‘fridge tomorrow. (I bought four at the supermarket today – three is too little, five is too much). Gonna try making this with my sandwich press instead. Should be okay too, eh?

    And anyway, noooootella contains milk. Always good for the first meal of the day, I say.
