Well, it's Nutella Day. And, while I had planned on making something awesome for this year (or at least something, since I was part of it the last 2 years!) the dreaded worlds of life and school got in my way. Coupled with the fact that for some odd reason I had pegged WND as being on the 18th instead of the 5th of February (Lord only knows why) and - well... I'm short.
But don't despair - I won't let the sun set on Nutella Day 2010 without at least a slight contribution from me! I have an oh-so-bad-for-you, totally not "Nutritionist Reccommended" but incredibly delicious breakfast I would sneak my young, "wild child" self once or twice a year when nobody was home to govern what was a "suitable" selection for me. I don't really recommend indulging in this sort of thing more than once or twice a year, though - unless you happen to be on Death Row, by which all means, eat as many as you like!
I had thought that the whole Nutella "Waffle-Wich" was an original of mine, but it turns out I'm way slower off the draw than I thought. I have yet to find a French toast style Nutella Waffle-Wich though, so I guess I'll lay claim to that!
Home-From School Special
2 Eggo waffles
splash of milk
dash of cinnamon
sprinkle of brown sugar
As much Nutella as you can stomach
butter or cooking spray
- Toast waffles until light brown (about 1 shade lighter than you usually would make them).
- Meanwhile, beat eggs, milk, cinnamon and brown sugar together until well blended.
- When Eggos are done toasting, slather one surface of one (or both) of the waffles and sandwich them together. You want a fairly hearty layer to ensure they stay together - plus its just darn tasty!
- Heat a skillet or frying pan with a touch of butter or cooking spray (you know, to be virtuous) over medium heat.
- Dip the waffle-wich into the egg, soaking the waffle well and coating all the sides thoroughly.
- Flip the waffle into the hot pan, pouring the remaining egg mixture overtop.
- Cook as you would any French toast, flipping halfway through. Serve immediately.
