Nutella & Strawberry French Toast Roll Ups.

A breakfast tray loaded with your favorite coffee,red roses...a few personal love messages and this!!!
You will be placed on a pedastal in his heart..forever n ever ...and the Solitaire that you had been hinting at for the past 3 months will magically appear on your dresser by the evening wink emoticon (Speaking from experience) 
So did you know I am not a morning person.. ?
I bet you did!! But if you are new to these parts, let me just reiterate, I hate getting up at ungodly 7 am..I know its not that early , but for me it might as well be midnight!! And I drink bucketloads!
But every once in a while, I do enjoy the occasional breakfast..My absolute all time favorites are Grilled cheese toast, Steaming hot Idlis, parfaits and Methi/ Alu paranthas... Yes, I love those. But I adore french toasts too!!
And this particular rendition of the ever popular and oh-so breezy French Toasts will make even a die-hard Breakfast skipper like me drool!
I swear I ate two rolls before I even plucked the courage to photograph these!! 
And had 2 more later on with Daddylonglegs P.. 
Best Breakfast Ever. 
Of course you need Strawberries..and given they are plenty in season right now, you must make the most of it.. 
Other ingredients are the usual pantry staples of eggs,bread,butter, milk and of course, the hero of the dish Nutella!! 
No can do without it. 
And No reason on Earth why you should even want to do without it!!! 

  • 6 slices fresh white sandwich bread, crusts removed
  • ½ punnet strawberries, diced small
  • 4½ tbsp Nutella
  • ¼ cup caster sugar (Note 1)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Egg Mixture
  • 1 egg (large)
  • 2 tbsp milk (full cream or low fat)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Cinnamon powder 1tsp
  • Chocolate Sauce for Drizzling

  • Combine Egg Mixture in a bowl with a flat base large enough to lie the roll up in. Whisk to combine.
  • Spread sugar out in a small dish.
  • Use a rolling pin to roll the bread flat. This makes them easier to roll up (and stay rolled up).
  • Spread each piece of bread with around ¾ tbsp of Nutella.
  • Sprinkle strawberries along the bottom of each piece of bread.
  • Roll up bread. The Nutella will keep it sealed.
  • Melt butter in pan over medium high heat.
  • Roll each roll up in the Egg Mixture, shake off excess then place in the pan. Repeat with remaining roll ups.
  • Cook for around 4 minutes until each side is golden, rotating every 1 minute or so.
  • Remove from pan and immediately place in the sugar. Roll to coat in sugar, then remove. Repeat with remaining roll ups.
  • Serve immediately, while warm.

  • You won't use all the sugar. But I find that you need around ¼ cup to ensure each roll up is evenly coated. You might be able to get away with less. If you sprinkle it on instead of rolling it, it won't stick as well.
  • Icing sugar (confectionary sugar) doesn't work, it just disappears instantly when it touches the roll up.
  • These are best eaten fresh. They tend to go soggy and because of the sugar, the bread "sweats" if left out.
