There is an epic breakfast showdown between pancakes and French toast and today French toast won. This is French toast with a spin. Who would have guessed flattening bread and rolling it up with Nutella and bananas would be such a simple yet scrumptious treat? You do not even have to make it for breakfast. You could eat these roll-ups as a mid-night snack or even if you are craving something sweet.

Ingredients

  • 6 slices fresh white sandwich bread, crusts removed
  • ½ punnet strawberries, diced small
  • 4½ tbsp Nutella
  • ¼ cup caster sugar (Note 1)
  • 1 tbsp butter

Egg Mixture

  • 1 egg (large)
  • 2 tbsp milk (full cream or low fat)
  • Pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Combine Egg Mixture in a bowl with a flat base large enough to lie the roll up in. Whisk to combine.
  2. Spread sugar out in a small dish.
  3. Use a rolling pin to roll the bread flat. This makes them easier to roll up (and stay rolled up).
  4. Spread each piece of bread with around ¾ tbsp of Nutella.
  5. Sprinkle strawberries along the bottom of each piece of bread.
  6. Roll up bread. The Nutella will keep it sealed.
  7. Melt butter in pan over medium high heat.
  8. Roll each roll up in the Egg Mixture, shake off excess then place in the pan. Repeat with remaining roll ups.
  9. Cook for around four minutes until each side is golden, rotating every one minute or so.
  10. Remove from pan and immediately place in the sugar. Roll to coat in sugar, then remove. Repeat with remaining roll ups.
  11. Serve immediately, while warm.
