Chocolate Hazelnut Stuffed French Toast

Yield: 4 servings.


  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 8 1/2-inch thick slices brioche or challah bread
  • 8 tablespoons chocolate hazelnut spread


  1. In a medium bowl whisk the eggs, milk and salt. Working in batches, melt some of the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Dip bread slices in the egg mixture and quickly transfer to the skillet.  Cook bread until golden brown and flip  over. 
  3. Spread 2 tablespoons of chocolate hazelnut spread on golden brown side of bread and place the other piece of cooked bread on top to enclose chocolate hazelnut spread.  Gently press down with spatula so pieces stick together. 
  4. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  5. Serve with grade b maple syrup or powered sugar.
  • BYOC: A beautiful and tasty garnish would be toasted chopped hazelnuts.  Also, bananas, strawberries, blueberries would be delicious as well.  Go ahead and make a fruit sauce to go with it for mom on Mother’s day.  She will absolutely adore the sauce and you.
