Nutella Stuffed French Toast Sticks
These Nutella Stuffed French Toast Sticks are an awesome busy morning breakfast option but pretty enough to serve at a holiday breakfast buffet.
Servings: 15 sticks
- 10 slices white sandwich bread
- 5 heaping tablespoons Nutella
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- powdered sugar , sprinkling (optional)
- maple syrup
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Generously coat a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Spread a heaping tablespon of Nutella on one slice of bread and top with another slice to make a sandwich. Use a serrated break knife to slice the sandwich into thirds, making the sections as equal in size as possible. Repeat with remaining bread and Nutella.
In a pie plate or similar dish, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla extract. Using your hands, dip each assembled french toast stick into the egg mixture, turning to coat all sides well. Allow excess egg mixture to drip off of french toast stick and then transfer it to the prepared baking sheet. Lightly coat the top of the french toast sticks with non-stick cooking spray. Bake for 8 minutes then remove the baking sheet from the oven and use a spatula to flip each stick over. Return to oven for an additional 7 or 8 minutes or until well toasted on both sides. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired, and serve with maple syrup for dipping.
To flash freeze:
Before sprinkling with powdered sugar, lay french toast sticks on a baking sheet that is large enough to hold them without touching each other. Place baking sheet in the freezer for about 4 to 6 hours till frozen solid. Transfer the french toast sticks to a gallon sized zippered plastic storage bag. Store in freezer for up to 3 months.
To reheat frozen sticks place a few on a microwave safe plate and cook on high for one minute. Touch and if not warmed completely, set microwave for additional 15 second increments until warmed to your liking. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired.
