Recipe: Hazelnut French Toast Sticks

Today, I got home from work at 4:30 am (yes, you read right--4:30 in the morning). I figured I deserved a hearty meal, so I proceeded to cook some bacon, eggs, and rice for me and my husband before I crawled into bed. When I woke up, I decided I wanted something sweet and sinful to go with my cholesterol. Which led to...

Hazelnut French Toast Sticks

1 egg, beaten
About 1/2 cup milk
About 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 slices wheat bread (you can also use white bread)
Hazelnut spread (like Nutella)

1. Make the batter: In a bowl, mix egg, milk, and cinnamon. Set aside.
2. Spread hazelnut spread over one side of one slice of bread. Layer with other slice of bread, hazelnut side in to make a sandwich.
3. Slice crosswise into four equal "sticks."
4. Put butter in a pan over low heat.
5. Dip each stick into batter, place in pan.
6. Fry until lightly browned. Turn over to brown other side.

I ate it with honey, but it was a tad too sweet. I imagine maple syrup might be too sweet as well, so you might want to try powdered sugar.


  1. gosh.... you make me feel like eating it NOW

  2. Make some right now! Super easy!


Oh, so sweet of you to drop a line!:)
