Table Recipes: Strawberry, Nutella and Banana French Toast

Strawberry, Nutella and Banana French Toast

I love brunch.

Simply because you can eat breakfast food late in the day and people wouldn’t think of it as odd. One of things I love making is a variation of Jaime Oliver’s recipe. This dish is an improved version of a brunch staple, French Toast. But here, what you create is a French Toast Sandwich with a sweet, fruity filling.

Since there seems to be an abundance of strawberries in the local markets, I decided to create a version using these lovely red berries adding a bit of Nutella for a nutty chocolate kick.

Strawberry, Nutella, Banana French Toast
Adapted from Jaime’s Dinners by Jaime Oliver

4 pieces sliced bread
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 cup of strawberries, quartered
1/2 of a medium banana, mashed
2 tablespoons Nutella
caster sugar
whipped cream

  • Beat the eggs in bowl and mix in the milk.
  • In another bowl, gently mix together 3/4 cup of the strawberries, the mashed banana and Nutella.
  • Thinly butter each side of the sliced bread and dip each slice in the egg mixture.
  • Place the strawberry mixture between two pieces of sliced bread and gently press down.
  • In a non-stick pan, fry the french toast with some melted butter.
  • Once golden brown and slightly crisp, transfer to a plate.
  • Sprinkle with sugar. Garnish with the reserved strawberries and dollop of whipped cream.

Makes two servings

For this recipe, you can use any fruit combination you want: Blueberries and bananas. Bananas and melted chocolate. Sliced mangoes and condensed milk. Anything your heart desires. Have fun and enjoy.

Many thanks to Stich and K. for their help.

    I love brunch because I think of it as an excuse to eat twice as much as I normally do (not that I need an excuse to ...).
