Ingredients
  

  • 2 slices bread preferably 2 day old bread
  • 1 no eggs
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp fine sugar
  • 2 tsp Nutella and more for serving
  • 1 dollops butter
  • icing sugar and strawberries for garnish

Instructions
 

  • Ina shallow flat bottomed bowl, crack the egg and add sugar and milk. Using a fork, whisk it.
  • Apply a thick layer of Nutella on one bread using 2 tsp of chocolate spread.
  • Cover that with the other bread slice, making a sandwich.
  • Carefully place this sandwich in the bowl with the egg.
  • When one side has soaked enough egg, carefully flip and let the other side soak in all the egg.
  • Heat a frying pan. Let it become hot and then add a dollop of butter and let it melt. Don't add the butter first and heat cos then the butter will burn.
  • Gently slide the chocolate sandwich into the frying pan.
  • Keep the heat at medium to low or else the butter will burn fast and become brown.
  • Once one side has crisped up, flip and cook the other side.
  • When both sides are brown and crispy, take the French toast out of the pan and on a kitchen towel to soak the excess butter.
  • If you are making another set of French toast, you need to wipe the pan with tissue paper to take out the brown burnt butter before making a fresh batch.
  • Cut the sandwich in a triangle. Drizzle more Nutella and dust icing sugar if you want. Serve with some cut up strawberries.

Notes

  1. About the bread: It is best to use medium-hard bread for French toast. A day or two-day-old bread works best. Brioche is an excellent choice since it is anyway buttery and becomes extra crispy when cooked further with the custard inside. 
  2. If you get a loaf and cut the bread into your desired thickness, it will be better. Sometimes sliced bread has too thin slices. Then it becomes a soggy mess when you add that into the egg.
