Nutella and Banana French Toasties
(Recipe is for 8 bread slices; ~30 toasties)

Ingredients:
- 8 thick slices white bread
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
- 2 tablespoons butter
+ 1/3 cup Nutella
+ 2 large bananas, sliced
+ whipped cream
+ maple syrup for dipping
+ cocoa powder to garnish (optional)

Directions:

1. Place a slice of bread on a cutting board. Align a round cookie cutter (or make-shift shot glass) in the corner of the slice and push through the bread. Once the cookie cutter makes it all the way through bread, gently remove the bread outside the cutter. Repeat, cutting as many circles from one slice as possible. Repeat on all slices of bread.

2. In a medium bowl, beat together eggs, whipping cream, sugar, salt, orange zest and vanilla extract.

3. In a griddle or frying pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Dip both sides of the toasties in the egg mixture and carefully transfer to the hot griddle. Brown on both sides and transfer to a warm plate while remaining the remaining toasties cook.

4. Top with Nutella, sliced bananas and whip cream.

    I didn’t know that 1) to have an organic egg, means the farm it comes from has to be chemical free for 3 years!.. I also like that 2) eggs can help with weight management!

  2. Angie Torres Says:

    I love eggs but always try to watch how many I eat! A large egg contains six grams of the highest quality protein found in any food. Thanks for the opportunity! :)

  3. Melanie Says:

    The difference between white and brown eggs is simply a matter of what colour the chicken is! *LOL* That cracked me up. ;)

  4. Brian Says:

    Eggs can be from the farm to the grocery store within 4-6 days. Thats fresh!

  9. Mădălina Says:

    Fixed!! In the original test recipe, we used honey… it tasted much better with brown sugar. Good catch, and sorry for the confusion.

  10. Steve @ the black Peppercorn Says:

    Great post!! These look so tasty. Really nice photos!

  11. Nicole Says:

    1) These look so delicious.
    2) I learned that hens must have access to the outdoors to be classified as organic. I always thought it was to do exclusively with how they were fed.

    Now this I really like :)

    Anyone ever try Nutella S’mores? Spread Nutella on a graham cracker, spread marshmellow cream on another and smoosh the two graham crackers together. Instant s’mores….no fire necessary. You might also want to try them with peanut butter.
