Nutella Stuffed Brioche French Toast

I’ve been a lover of Nutella for about five or six years now.  My cousin Erica first introduced me to this piece of heaven on New Years morning and I’ve been a fan ever since.  In fact, I love it so much that it starred as the filling for our wedding cake!  For those that are not familiar with it, Nutella is a chocolate hazelnut spread that is fantastic on just about anything.  Seriously, you could spread it on a piece of wood and I’d probably think it looked delicious!  Which is why when I came across this recipe on Nook & Pantry’s blog, it was a must have!

Nutella Stuffed Brioche French Toast


Slices of stale brioche loaf – I couldn’t find this so I used brioche rolls from the bakery section of Kroger

1 egg

3/4 cup milk

1 TBSP butter, melted plus more for frying

1 TBSP sugar

2 tsp vanilla

pinch of salt

Nutella Spread


Spread a light layer of Nutella on half of the bread slices, and make a sandwich using them and the other half of the slices.  Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. 

Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Dip the sandwiches in the batter on each side then place in the skillet.  Cook till golden brown on each side.  Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar.

The Verdict:  Holy Wonderfulness!!  This had just a hint of  Nutella combined with an almost custard like texture topped off with the crispness of the fried bread.  I had to use brioche rolls instead of a loaf, since it’s all that was available at my local supermarket.  I plan on getting a stand mixer with a dough hook soon and when I do, I will be able to make my own loaf!  This is now my favorite form of French Toast.  I can’t wait to have overnight guests so I can make it for them!  Also, check out the blog where I found this recipe, her pictures look much more heavenly than mine since she was able to slice hers thicker!
