White Oak Inn Decadent French Toast

This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy French Toast.   It’s rich and warm – just the way I like my men 🙂  Sometimes we make a warm strawberry sauce to accompany this dish, but really, it’s darned good just as is, sprinkled with a little powdered sugar.

1 loaf of Italian bread
1/4 cup of chocolate hazelnut spread (Nutella or other brand)
1 bar of white chocolate
8 eggs
1 can of evaporated milk
1/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of almond extract
Butter for griddle

Preparation time about 15 minutes.    Cooking time 15 minutes.
Slice the loaf of bread into 16 slices.   Pair slices to have 8 “sandwiches”.    On the inside of each sandwich slice, spread about a teaspoon of chocolate hazelnut spread.   Put a square of white chocolate on one of the slices and top with the other to make a sandwich.    Beat eggs with evaporated milk, sugar and almond extract.    Dip the sandwiches in the egg batter.   Put in a deep dish and pour remaining batter over top and allow sandwiches to soak and absorb the batter, preferably for at least 10 minutes.  

When ready to cook, melt butter on a griddle or skillet set on a medium/low setting.   (We use 275 on our electric griddle).    Put the sandwiches on the griddle and cook until browned on each side and cooked through.  I allow about 8 minutes per side.
