Home Cooking: Nutella French Toast Sandwiches
Here's the recipe.
Nutella French Toast Sandwiches
You'll need ...
8 large eggs
2 ½ cups whole milk
¼ cup sugar
½ teaspoon kosher salt
Zest of 1 orange
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 loaf brioche, sliced about ¾-inch thick
¾ cup Nutella
3 ripe bananas, sliced on a diagonal
In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, sugar, salt, orange zest, and vanilla. Set aside.
Grease a casserole dish. Spread half of the bread slices with Nutella and top with bananas and remaining bread slices.
Place in casserole dish and pour egg mixture and allow it to soak in, at least 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, until bread is golden brown and puffy. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
By the way ...
This recipe serves 6-8 so you may want to cut it in half if it's just for two.
In her book, Lee says she often leaves the bread soaking overnight and then puts it in the oven in the morning.
I tried two sandwiches with strawberries instead of bananas but the bananas worked better. Keep the strawberries as a side.
