THE Thanksgiving Dessert Saga: Part 1

This weekend is the start of my favorite time of the year: Fall. Risking sounding like a basic  (you know what) I live for all things pumpkin spice and sweater weather. There are just so many things to love about the fall: the beautiful scenery as the leaves change, the crisp autumn air, the excuse for watching Halloweentown a million times and catching up with friends over a good old fashion PSL (also my birthday is in November so that helps). Another thing I love about the fall?

Nutella French Toast Rollups (aka heaven)

Although I am quite the advocate for overflowing spoonfuls of Nutella as a legitimate snack, there are some pretty cool things you can also do with it. If you’re looking for an easy brunch item, these Nutella French Toast Rollups are the perfect blend between guest appropriate and self-satisfying. 

Ingredients

Sliced Bread (I use Villagio because it’s fluffy)

Nutella

Choice Fruit (I suggest strawberries)

2 eggs

3 tablespoons milk

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon

Butter (for greasing the pan)

Maple syrup (dipping)

Instructions

  1. Trim the crust from the bread and flatten it out with a rolling pin.
  2. Spread a thin layer of Nutella over the piece of bread, and add a line of fruit of your choice (I suggest strawberries) to the top edge.
  3. Roll the bread up and repeat until they’re all filled.
  4. Whisk egg and milk in a shallow bowl or pie plate.
  5. Mix cinnamon and sugar in a shallow bowl or pie plate. 
  6. Heat a skillet on medium and melt a tablespoon of butter.
  7. Add the rolls to the egg coating and roll until all sides are covered.
  8. Put the rolls seam side down on the pan and turn until browned all over.
  9. Place hot rolls in the cinnamon sugar mixture and roll until covered.
  10. Serve on a plate, dusted in icing sugar with maple syrup for dipping (or some more melted Nutella)

For an interesting twist, replace the line of fruit with a strip of already fried bacon for a sweet and salty treat 🍽.

Happy brunching
