Clearly, I was in awesome mom mode yesterday when I whipped up this lunch: french toast stuffed with Nutella and blueberries. Have you ever made stuffed french toast? It’s not really stuffed—it’s just a sweet sandwich dipped in egg batter and fried in butter. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.
You start by slathering some Nutella on nice, whole grain bread. Then sprinkle on some blueberries—fresh, frozen, or any other berries/fruit you have on hand.
Whisk an egg (about one egg per sandwich) with a little milk and cinnamon. Dip your sandwich in the egg batter, making sure that it is coated on all sides. Be sure to use a bowl that is too small, so you have to squish your sandwich into it. That’s what I do.
Fry the egg-dipped sandwich in a little butter. Use medium low heat—stuffed french toast is thick, so you want to cook it low and slow.
When the toast is golden brown on both sides, it is done and ready to be served (or cooled and packed in a lunch):
It took every shred of willpower I had not to devour this french toast after taking the photo above. It’s just oozing with warm Nutella goodness. And because this is a “My Mom is Awesome” lunch, I also packed some Angie’s Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn:
Crazy good, that’s what Angie’s popcorn is. And isn’t the packaging delightful? Run to your nearest Target and pick up a bag. If you like sweet and salty crunchy stuff, you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven.
Happy Weekend !
