Nutella and bacon were meant to be together. It may seem strange, but the two foods have a lot in common. Both are highly addictive, incredibly decadent, and are best eaten in the morning, when you won't feel as guilty/can burn off the excess calories the rest of the day. Enter the Nutella and Bacon Stuffed French Toast by Domesticate ME!, the perfect way to make your mornings sinfully delicious.
What you've got here is a breakfast trifecta: nutty/sweet/cocoa-y nutella, greasy and crunchy bacon, and moist and fluffy challah bread, all combined in one dish. Yes, you can use another type of bread for French Toast, but we all know challah is best. That's pretty much all you need for this recipe, aside from some milk, eggs, spices, and butter, all of which you should have on-hand for impromptu French Toast anyway.
Bust out any old French Toast recipe and follow along the images to learn how to create this nutella-bacon concoction. You can head to the original recipe, which opens up with a cute anecdote, or just get on foodgasming below.
