Nutella Strawberry French Toast Rolls

I'm so excited to be going home for Mother's Day! It's a really special weekend because my entire family will be walking the Race for the Cure. We will be there in support and in honor of the amazing women in our lives who have been affected by breast cancer.

I'm also pumped because I'll have the opportunity to make brunch for everyone post-race! My mother LOVES strawberries - maybe more than me - so this recipe is perfect. Nutella. Strawberry. French. Toast. Rolls. I mean...it's so simple and so delicious. 

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 12 slices white bread (crust off and flattened with rolling pin)
  • 6 strawberries, chopped
  • Nutella or Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut Butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp almond milk
  • Splash of vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Maple syrup

Spread Nutella along one edge of the bread slice and layer with chopped strawberries. Tightly roll bread and repeat until they're all filled. 

In a shallow bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix the sugar with the cinnamon.

Melt a tablespoon of butter in a skillet set over medium heat.

Add the rolls to the egg mixture, turning to coat on all sides, then place them in the pan seam side down. Cook in batches until golden brown, turning them to cook and brown on all sides. Add butter to the pan as needed.

Add the hot rolls from the pan to the cinnamon sugar and roll until completely covered.

Serve with maple syrup.
