S’mores French Toast
April 23, 2015
Its simply a sandwich with Nutella and marshmallows, dipped in ordinary french toast egg mixture then pan fried until golden.
- Prep: 10 mins
- Cook: 5 mins
- Yields: 2 Servings
Dip the remaining two slices of bread into the egg mixture (the side without Nutella on it) and place on top of the marshmallow topped bread in the pan, to form a sandwich (ie. The side with the Nutella on it should be placed onto the marshmallows and the side you dipped into the egg mixture should face up so when you flip, it will be cooked).
Press down lightly with a spatula to help disperse the heat through to the centre of the sandwich to melt the marshmallows. Don't press too hard - I made that mistake once and most of my marshmallows oozed out the side into the pan.
Don't worry if the marshmallows aren't oozing out the side when you finish cooking, they will continue to melt from the heat in the sandwich. But they should be very soft - just touch one and you'll be able to tell if it's melted and gooey inside.
It is better to use stale bread for french toast. If you use fresh bread, it will soak up too much egg mixture, even if you just dip it in very quickly, and the inside of the bread may end up soggy.
This needs to be cooked over medium high heat, not high heat because you need the centre of the sandwich to heat up enough to melt the marshmallows so you need to cook it slightly slower than normal french toast, otherwise the french toast will burn before the marshmallows melt.
