This morning I woke up and was craving French toast. I hardly ever make it because I’m the only one in the family that likes it, and it’s not the lowest calorie breakfast option. My son was insisting on his regular Nutella sandwich when I thought why don’t I just make 2 Nutella sandwiches this morning and make them into stuffed French toast. I added some fresh strawberries along side, and also used some frozen strawberries that I had bought for smoothies to make a warm strawberry maple syrup. This was really good and incredibly decadent. It would make the perfect breakfast or brunch to share with friends and family or your kids just because it’s Tuesday.
