Nutella French Toast

Stephanie Gallagher
When I want to make something extra special for breakfast, this stuffed French toast is what I make. Decadent and delicious, this recipe is best when made with day-old challah. If you don't have challah, use a day-old soft Italian bread. If you can't find Nutella in your supermarket, make your own chocolate hazelnut spread. It's easy!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 8 minutes

Total Time: 18 minutes

Yield: 5 servings


  • 10 slices day-old Challah or Italian bread
  • 5-6 Tbsp. chocolate hazelnut spread, such as Nutella
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 cups cream or whole milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3-4 Tbsp. butter


  1. Preheat an electric skillet (compare prices) to 350 degrees F. Or heat a large skillet over medium heat.

  2. Spread Nutella over five of the bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices to make five sandwiches. Place the sandwiches in a 9 x 13 baking dish.

  3. Whisk together eggs, cream, vanilla and salt. Pour over the sandwiches. Using tongs or your fingers, turn to make sure sandwiches soak up egg mixture.

  4. Add butter to skillet.

  5. Place French toast sandwiches in skillet. Cook 2-4 minutes until golden brown. Turn and cook another 2-4 minutes until golden on the other side. Cover for the last minute of cooking, so the Nutella melts completely.
Serve immediately with syrup or powdered sugar.
