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