Weekend breakfast is allocated to the hubby, Ryan. I handle dinners throughout the week and he gets the breakfast for 2 days. Most of the time we have pancakes, waffles or the like. But sometimes my daughter and I get a pleasant surprise for breakfast.
About a year ago we saw on tv somewhere about a restaurant that makes a peanut butter and jelly sandwich crusted and fried up like french toast. It looked delicious so we tried it. We made the pb&j sandwich, soaked it in eggs/milk, crusted it in Frosted Flakes, then fried it up like french toast. It was good but it was a little too sweet for my liking. And that’s saying something cause I love sweet EVERYTHING!
Sometimes when we make something we don’t revisit it for months or even years…this french toast was one of those things. But we revisited it this past weekend and made them, in my opinion, better than they were before. Yesterday they were made with peanut butter and nutella crusted in a mixture of panko, cinnamon and raw sugar (to make it form a sugary crust)! It was like heaven in my mouth. The peanut butter and nutella melted and was oozing out of the bread as I cut into it. Lily made a mess of herself and the table but loved every bite.
Bread (regular or Texas toast)
Butter or oil spray (for pan)
Spread peanut butter on one slice of bread and nutella on the other. Place peanut butter slice on nutella slice. Break eggs into shallow bowl, add milk and mix. In a separate bowl mix panko, cinnamon and sugar. Make an assembly line with the sandwich, egg mix and panko mix. Take sandwich and dip into eggs turning until all surfaces of the sandwich are coated in egg wash. Next dip the sandwich in the panko mixture, turning until all surfaces are coated with panko. Butter or spray skillet and heat pan. Place sandwich in pan and cook through, about 3-4 minutes each side. Cut in half or quarters or however you like and serve. Enjoy!! (I always do!)
