Sometime last year I saw a video online of somebody making french toast roll ups.. filled with Nutella! Oh it looked incredible and I decided I would make them, mentally added it to the list of 1000 plus dishes I already had stored on my to make list and forgot all about it.
Then a few days ago I was feeling like I needed a decent brunch, we all know brunch is better than breakfast. I spotted a jar of Nutella just calling my name and I had some white bread that needed to be used up, the video I watched didn’t give quantities or exact instructions but it seemed simple enough.
Wow. Wow is all I can say, such a simple idea but oh it is ridiculously tasty. My friend Ceri managed to turn up for a coffee just as I was finished making the first batch so I even had an official tester and it would be fair to say he approved.
Nutella French Toast Roll Ups
2 slices of bread, crusts removed ( I find slightly stale white bread works best for French Toast but use whatever bread you prefer )
2 tbsp Nutella
1 free range egg
40ml full fat milk
3 tbsp caster sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp butter
Beat your egg and milk together in a shallow bowl. Mix your sugar and cinnamon together and dust across a plate. Use a rolling pin to flatten your bread slightly and spread Nutella on one side of your bread, roll up tightly like a swiss roll. Melt your butter in a large frying pan over a medium – high heat. Dunk your roll ups in the egg/milk mixture and pop straight into the pan ( watch your fingers ). Cook on all sides until golden brown then remove from pan and roll in the cinnamon sugar. Serve whilst hot, perhaps with a side of crispy bacon!
