Stuffed French Toast Recipe
Get ready guys! You are witnessing a monumental food blogging moment right now!
This is the first recipe on The Foodie Affair’s site that I’ve posted using Nutella! ‘Bout time I got on that foodie fad, right? LOL
Truth be told, when the trend started I wasn’t feeling the inspiration.
Although in the back of my mind I must have thought I would eventually find my groove because I bought a humongous jar of Nutella from Costco.
There was a few spoonfuls swiped out of it, so SOMEONE dig into it, but I bought it so long ago that I made sure to check the expiration date before using it!
Strawberry & Nutella
Smooched right smack in the middle of the French toast is a dollop of healthy Strawberry Chia Seed Jam and decadent hazelnut cocoa spread!
Yep, I married the two and boy do the rich flavors make one marvelous breakfast!
I learned a little trick from Nagi over at RecipeTin Eats on how to take control of the filling so it doesn’t become a gooey mess while cooking.
Freeze your filling before assembling the toast and it melts beautifully when you cook it.
The filling won’t ooze with goodness until you cut into the French toast right off the warm griddle! How cool is that?!
That simple step was helpful when making this thick French toast dish. I placed a couple of tablespoons each of Nutella and Jam on parchment paper close to the shape of the bread and froze it.
Once it was set I peeled them off and plopped them in the middle of the bread before coating it with the egg mixture!
Stuffed French Toast With Strawberries & Nutella
- 8 slices of bread
- Nutella Spread 2-3 tablespoons per serving – adjust to bread size
- Strawberry Chia Jam
- 4 large eggs
- 1/3 cup milk or cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2-3 tablespoons butter for cooking
- powdered sugar for topping
- additional jam or maple syrup for topping
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place 2-3 tablespoons of jam and Nutella on the parchment paper spreading it the shape of a disk close to the size of the bread. Freeze overnight or for a couple of hours to set the filling.
- In a medium shallow dish whisk together the eggs, milk/cream and vanilla.
- Place a Nutella and Jam disk on a slice of bread. Top with another slice of bread and place in egg mixture ensuring the egg soaks through. Carefully turn the bread so the other side gets coated.
- Heat a griddle and coat with a tablespoon of butter over medium heat (350 degrees). Cook each side of the bread for 2-3 minutes or until light golden brown. Repeat with remaining slices of bread.
- Garnish with powdered sugar and serve with additional jam or maple syrup.

I grew up eating Nutella in Germany and this looks so good! Love it. 🙂
My teenage son is a Nutella addict. 🙂 I will have to make this for him soon- he’d love it!
Yep, the kids LOVE Nutella! Can’t blame them though it’s tasty!
This is how I would want to start my day!
Decadent breakfast, especially nice when it’s enjoyed leisurely!
I am slightly addicted to Nutella. I have never tried it in French Toast! MMM. Thanks for the genius idea!
If you are a Nutella fan you’ll love the breakfast splurge!
It’s funny you’ve never used Nutella – I think I only have once, maybe twice myself. Another thing I haven’t done? Salted caramel anything lol. This sounds delicious Sandra! Love the idea of the jam especially in french bread.
I was first introduced to Nutella when we lived in Europe and would add a tiny bit to bread or waffles, but never add it to the many decadent recipes as I’ve seen since then. Putting it in French toast is as wild as I’ve gotten…so far 🙂
I love the combination of chocolate and strawberries, this French toast sounds wonderful, and great tip to freeze the filling first!
Joy, the freezing tip is so key in keeping the filling in place. Works like a charm 🙂
A epic moment in your kitchen. I am sure your family is so happy you have joined the fad to make them a delicious breakfast or maybe even a snack. Freezing the stuffing ingredients is a super idea. I have not made french toast in such a long time. Would love to make them drizzled with your delicious strawberry chia jam
Strawberry season is just ramping up right now, so the chia jam is going to be a staple. I know you’ll love it too!
This looks fabulous and so does that bread! My kids would love this for Sunday morning breakfast!
I hope you get to gather your kids around the table soon, Renee!
What a fancy french toast! It sounds incredible!
Thank you, Joanne! Scrumptious indeed!
Oh my! I want these in my belly right now! They look incredible!
I know that feeling, Jessica 🙂
Very fun idea! I’m sure with our homemade bread and jam the nutella extra would be a super sweet treat.
Sounds like a winning combination 🙂
I had my first stuffed french toast at a restaurant about 10 years ago, and I have been hooked since then. This is so clever and fun! It is also beautiful.
Stuffed french toast definitely makes an extra special breakfast! Thank you Marjie!
Sandra! This looks to die for! I must try this soon. I love this idea for a Sunday Breakfast.
Thanks, Sarah! Weekend breakfast time is my favorite day of the week!
Costco always gets me in trouble! Your french toast sounds like the perfect way to enjoy nutella.
I make a trip to Costco during the holidays to buy chocolate chips and nuts otherwise the bulk items require too much storage! Although the Nutella doesn’t take up too much space 🙂
Those look yummy!I am going to try these.
Thanks, Angie! Nothing like treating yourself to a plate of French toast and these are extra delicious 🙂
Hope you love this as much as we have!
