If you haven’t heard of Elvis Presley’s French Toast (or Banana Nutella French Toast), I am SO excited to introduce you to them! They are a hit at our house and I love the fact the kids get a little extra protein from the peanut butter and some fruit mixed into their breakfast. I’m not claiming these are necessarily healthy by any means, but they are fun breakfast that will fill the kids up and taste amazing! A traditional Elvis Presley French Toast is only peanut butter and bananas. However, what goes better with those two ingredients than Nutella? The combination was outstanding!! The melted chocolate, the creamy peanut butter, the warmed bananas all toasted to perfection in a simple egg mixture. Couldn’t be better!
I am also excited to share a really fun tip for making crusty, sweet french toast. Have you ever eaten from a Waffle Truck? If you haven’t, you are missing out. They make these waffles that have this sugary crust that is delightful. Well, I took that concept and did the same with these french toast and it turned out better than I had hoped! Before you put the dipped french toast onto the griddle, smear a generous amount of butter onto the griddle and sprinkle a thin layer of sugar onto the butter. Place the french toast over the sugar/butter and cook until golden brown. The sugar and butter coats the top of the french toast with this crusty-carmely topping that makes this breakfast extra special! Top the whole thing with a sprinkling of powdered sugar and you have a simple, delicious breakfast put together in just a few minutes. Hope you enjoy 😉
