Nutella Banana Stuffed French Toast

My husband Phil is a firefighter and works 24 hour shifts, so on the weekends when he gets off shift I like to make breakfast. I am always looking for new breakfast ideas in my cookbooks and magazines. I found this recipe for Nutella Banana Stuffed French Toast in The Picky Palate Cookbook by Jenny Flake that I just got recently. I recommend this book, if you are a cookbook fan like me, there is a lot of simple but not everyday recipes in it. This is the second recipe that I have made from it already and they both have been great.  Phil loves nutella, as do I recently so I figured this recipe would be a big hit with him. He came home from work and said "why is there nutella and bread on the counter?" I told him what I was making and he said "WOOAAHHH!" He was super excited about it. And for good reason because it was awesome! I definitely used more nutella then was called for in the recipe. The recipe called for a tablespoon per sandwich and I probably but 1 tablespoon and a half to 2 tablespoons per sandwich. Nutella has been is so many recipes that I have been seeing recently. I love it!

Nutella Banana Stuffed French Toast

4 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
6 slices bread
3-6 tablespoons nutella
2 medium bananas, sliced 1/8 inch thick
Powdered sugar

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Add eggs, milk, brown sugar and vanilla to a large bowl and whisk together to combine. Dip the bread in the egg mixture on both sides.

Add bread to skillet and cook about 2-3 minutes per side over medium heat.

Once bread is browned spread 1/2 -1 tablespoon of nutella on each bread slice. Top 3 of the bread slices with the sliced bananas. Top the bread slices that have bananas with the remaining bread slices.

Top with maple syrup and confectioners sugar if desired.
