Pancakes or French Toast? Why choose when you can have both?
I had some leftover brioche and decided to make Mr. P some stuffed French toast over the weekend. I happened to have some fresh strawberries as well and decided to make the French toast stuffed with strawberries and Nutella (is there anything better than strawberries and Nutella?). But right before I was about to whip up the egg mixture for the French toast coating, I decided to use some leftover pancake batter I had instead.
I’ve made this creation before and we’ve enjoyed it. I can never decide between pancakes and French toast when we go out to brunch, so I love being able to enjoy both at once at home. These turned out great. The outside of the brioche is coated with pancake batter. The inside is stuffed with copious amounts of Nutella and fresh slices of strawberry.
- 4 thick slices of leftover brioche bread (about 2 inches thick)
- 1 cup bisquick mix
- 1 egg
- ½ cup milk
- 4 large strawberries, sliced thinly
- 8 heaping tbsp Nutella
- In a small bowl, mix bisquick, egg and milk until only small lumps remain.
- Take brioche and with a sharp knife, make a deep slit into and along the length of the bread, so that you create a pocket to stuff with Nutella and strawberries. Make sure the other three sides of the bread remain closed. Only one side should be open from the knife cut.
- Stuff bread with 2 tbsp of Nutella and slices of strawberries. Dip both sides of bread with pancake batter. Place onto heated skillet and cook on both sides until pancake batter is fully cooked. You may also need to gently place the edges of the bread on the skillet for a few seconds to cook any batter that is on the edges of the bread. Serve immediately.
