Can you believe it’s already September? The year 2013 is almost over! The latter part of the year is always exciting for me because of all the holidays. I feel like all the huge holidays are coming! For example, Halloween is coming up. Then, there’s Thanksgiving. And finally, Christmas/New years!
I`m already excited for all the sales and discounts! Black Friday, anyone? I hate the crowded stores and long lines, so I`m not the huge Black Friday shopper who waits in line for hours. I`m one of those people who sits at home and finds electronic deals online. 😛
Anyways, this September, I`m going to have Breakfast Tuesdays! I`ve been challenging myself to come up with quick and easy breakfasts for me to make and eat in the mornings. People tend to forget about breakfast, or they don`t have the time to sit down and eat a meal. But, breakfast is extremely important. After a night’s sleep, your body needs a good breakfast to fuel the rest of your day. Yeah, yeah. I know you`ve probably heard of this many times before. Which is why I wanted to start this series for this month-to motivate you to eat breakfast. I`ll be posting on Tuesdays, so you can have ideas to make breakfast for Wednesday-Friday mornings to get you through the rest of the week. Trust me, these recipes are easy and tasty! 🙂
Today, I have for you Nutella Stuffed French Toast! My sisters and I are in love with Nutella. I mean, who isn`t? That’s why I have the HUGE jar of Nutella, not the small one. Haha.
I don`t ever have those thick bread, like challah, at home. This becomes difficult when I want to make french toast, since you need a nice, thick slice of bread. I always have sandwich bread, though. So, I decided if I sandwiched the two slices of bread together, it will be thick enough. And, I was right! Ever since I`ve made this, I`ve been craving it like crazy.
Unfortunately, Nutella is not the healthiest spread to eat for breakfast, so I had to limit myself. A reason I love french toast is because it`s so simple to make. The only things I know how to cook is on a frying pan/skillet, which is why I love the fact that you make french toast on it.
This recipe uses only 2 slices of bread, cut in half. My sister and I ate 1 slice each, paired it with some apple slices, and a cup of milk and was full! If you want to make more, simply double or triple the recipe. I used apples since they go great with Nutella, but I`m convinced Nutella is great with pretty much all fruits!
Since the mornings are so rushed, I eat breakfast while I`m on my computer, catching up on social media, emails, and etc. Trust me, you can make and eat this in about 35 minutes! 🙂
