The most delicious topping in the world...

So, 4 years ago when I was in my first semester of college one of my roommates introduced me to Nutella.  It actually took a lot of convincing to get me to try it, because everytime I looked at it I had flashbacks to the Mary-Kate and Ashley movie where they are in the witness protection program in Austrailia (Our Lips are Sealed???).  One of their friends convinces them to eat vegemite (I have absolutely no idea what that is...) but they say something about nutella in that scene and I just always imagined it to be disgusting.  So, after a lot of coaxing I finally gave in, and was instantly hooked.  I had nutella with everything that I could possibly put it on until I got married and was instantly broke.  Unfortunately nutella just isn't in the budget.  Until now.  Thanks to the state of Arizona, we now get a small amount of food stamps every month so today when I went shopping I splurged a little and bought a jar of it.  Ah! Heaven in a jar!  The memory of it just doesn't do it justice.  I just spent a half hour looking up recipes that call for it, just to have an excuse to eat it =) So, here's the best one that I found.  It is made up of my 2 very favorite foods... I will definitely be making this for breakfast tomorrow!

Thanks to Ubiquitous Food Cravings Blog for this recipe:

Nutella Stuffed French Toast
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 4-6 thick slices of white bread (or any type of bread of your choice)
  • butter and/or a tablespoon of oil or a couple sprays of pam
  • nutella

1. Mix the eggs, milk and vanilla together in a shallow bowl big enough to fit your bread slices. Sprinkle in the cinnamon, add more or less depending on your tastes.
2. On medium heat, oil the pan with whatever method you choose.
3. Take one slice of bread, spread it with nutella (not over filling it otherwise it will all melt out the sides).  Put the other slice of bread on top so you have a nutella sandwich.
4. After a couple of minutes (3-4), flip the slice in the pan. Cook until both sides are golden brown.

5. Repeat step 3 until all slices are done or you’re out of mixture.

NOTE – Before dipping each new slice into the mixture, be sure to mix it with a fork and/or add some more cinnamon to the mix. Also be sure to re-oil the pan a little bit before placing a new slice to ensure that it browns just as nicely as the last.

ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!  I know I will (in fact, I might go to sleep earlier than planned, just so I can wake up and make this...)
