Today is our first Saturday without a swim meet in quite some time so I thought I would make it a special breakfast for my girls. My husband and dad are off for the morning looking at properties and to a gun auction so it looks like a girly type morning. I took my second loaf of Challah that I froze last week out and decided to create something yummy for them! Nutella + Challah… yep! Can’t go wrong there.
Challah Bread loaf (or whatever thick bread you have i.e. Italian)
1 tbl of water or milk
1 tsp of cinnamon
Butter for the pan or nonstick spray
Optional – toasted slivered almond for topping
Powdered sugar for dusting the final product
Cut the Challah into 1/2 inch slices and set aside.
Crack your eggs into a bowl and add the water or milk and whisk. Then add the cinnamon. Pour that into a baking dish that is flat so that you can easily dip the bread into it to coat. Set aside.
Then you’re basically going to make sandwiches. Spread the Nutella on one side of the bread and top it with another piece of Challah. Then repeat. Take that sandwich and dip it into your egg mixture to coat both side. I do let it sit in the mixture for about 30 seconds on each side.
Get your skillet ready over a low-medium flame with a pat of butter or spray warming up. Once hot and the butter is melted, add your French toast sandwich. I normally top one side with slivered almonds but this is optional. Cook until golden brown on both sides and dust with powdered sugar. Serve and enjoy!
