This challah bread french toast sandwich is stuffed with creamy mascarpone cheese, delicious hazelnut Nutella, and freshly ripened strawberries and definitely needs to be made for a special someone's breakfast in bed.
For the French Toast Batter:
2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1 splash vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
For the Sandwich:
3 slices challah bread
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1 tablespoon salted butter, cut into two pats
3 tablespoons mascarpone cheese
3 tablespoons chocolate hazelnut spread, such as Nutella
2 tablespoons whipped cream, for garnish
1 pinch cinnamon
Gather the ingredients.
Begin by mixing up your french toast batter. Combine the aforementioned ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and whisk until batter is smooth. Set aside.
Take a heart-shaped cookie cutter and cut out three 1-inch wide hearts from the challah bread.
In a large frying pan, melt butter and turn the heat to medium.
Dunk the heart-shaped challah bread in the french toast batter quickly.
Place the bread in the frying pan. Let them cook for a few minutes on each side until the french toast batter begins to turn light brown and starts to get semi crispy. Once they're done remove from heat and set aside.
On one heart, smear on 1 tablespoon mascarpone, then add the strawberries.
On the next heart, smear on 1 tablespoon of Nutella and place that piece, Nutella side down on top of the strawberries.
Add more mascarpone and another layer of strawberries and repeat until the stack is complete.
Top with a giant squeeze of whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon and enjoy!
