French Nutella Toast in Celebration of World Nutella Day

Yes the wonderful is back.

World Nutella Day is back.

Declared as such by my friends Sara from Ms. Adventures in Italy and Michelle from Bleeding Espresso (and Shelley from At Home in Rome, in spirit) as a day to celebrate, to get creative with, and most importantly, to EAT Nutella.

Last year I walked around the Historic Center of Rome with a jar of Nutella looking crazy. This I made something super easy.

FRENCH NUTELLA TOAST

eggs
milk
dash of cinnamon
bread (day or two old) I used French bread.
nutella

Lightly beat the eggs, milk and cinnamon.

Put a layer of Nutella between two pieces of bread.

Coat the bread in the egg mix.

Fry in some butter over medium heat until lightly browned.

Sprinkle with powered sugar.

Eat with syrup or without.

NOTE: Don't use fresh bread as it will soak up too much of the egg mixture and will be soggy.


You can also add bananas or jam.

@nyc caribbean regazza...french nutella toast sounds delicious. M issed your blog for the past month or so...needed some time to reflect on my life and try to overcome some of the stress I was dealing with. I had stress so bad in my neck, back, arms, hands--had to go see a chiropractor to re-align my back to help alieve some of the problem. In addition to that, I had a severely corrupt virus on my computer. At&T high speed levels 1 and 2 technical support couldn't resolve the issue. I am now waiting for Dell computers to send me out the CD's to install and conduct a full system recovery on my computer. Sometimes I'm able to catch a signal from the internet cafe a block away but I really do not have access to the internet. I can't even check my mail in google, can't get on facebook either. I have to borrow somebody else's computer

Syrup?? where are you getting that from? :) French Toast is so easy yet I never ever get my act together to make it :(

anna l'americana said...

OMG Arlene, that looks awesome. And I still have some Nutella left (it was, after all, an industrial sized jar, lol), so I'm thinking I know what I'm having for breakfast tomorrow......

And yeah, by the way, where ARE you getting syrup in Rome?

T.O. GIRL said...

WOW! that looks absolutely incredible! I definitely must try that out. Thanks for the recipe!

joanna - Pandoro, that is a good idea.

anon - hope you and your computer feel better.

sara - either at Castroni or my regular supermercato. Yes, they have syrup. Usually from Canada. I saw Ocean Spray Cranberry juice there last week and almost cried.

anna - ha....see my response to Sara.

T.O.Girl - you are welcome!

This is one I hadn't thought of but I love it.

Michelle | Bleeding Espresso said...

Your French toast looks so happy! Excellent job...and cranberry juice?! I may have to bring an extra suitcase to Rome when I finally make it there....

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

TFH - not sure why I waited so long to make it myself. Perfect for a relaxing Sunday.

michelle - yes Cranberry juice, at a regular supermarket. Then there's Castroni which has international foods but at a price (i.e. 3 euros for a box of Jello).
