This easy stuffed French toast recipe for kids is beyond simple and so yummy! A little bit of Nutella and your child's favorite fruit will make this their breakfast favorite.
My daughter loves three things, French Toast, Nutella, and strawberries. I decided to take three great tastes and make them taste great together with this easy stuffed French toast recipe. They're perfectly sized for kids since they form little "hot pockets" of yumminess.
Easy Stuffed French Toast
Rather than complicate my life and try to find a way to hold two pieces of bread together, I decided to cut the crusts off the bread, then fold it in half and seal the edges. Sort of like a pastry or calzone I suppose.
Before folding the bread in half, I just pat it down a bit and then add a little Nutella and some sliced strawberries for filling. You could also add bananas, or change things up and add peaches with cream cheese and a little powdered sugar for sweetness. The possibilities are endless. Just use whatever you kids like best.
I use fork tines to press the edges of the bread together to make sure they stay closed when cooking. Once you've packed your bread pockets, just whip up a few eggs, milk, and cinnamon and dip them quickly.
Add them a hot non-stick pan until they're golden brown. You may have to press down on the edges of the pockets to make sure they cook well.
Easy Stuffed French Toast for Kids
- Wheat Bread I used Honey Wheat
- Sliced Strawberries
- 2 Eggs
- A splash of milk
- ½ tsp of cinnamon
Cut the edges off of your bread.
Pat the bread down a bit so it can retain its structure when folded.
Add a few teaspoons of Nutella to your bread. This isn't an exact science, so add however much you'd like.
Add some sliced strawberries. Be careful not to overstuff your bread or it's burst open when folding.
Fold your bread in half to create a pocket and then clamp the edges with a fork.
Beat 2 (or more depending on your batch size) eggs and add a ¼ to ½ cup of milk and your cinnamon.
Dip your bread pockets in the egg mixture, then add to a non-stick pan (I use a bit of non-stick spray too).
Cook until they're golden brown. Don't forget to press down the edges of the pockets to be sure they cook up well.
I hope your kids loves this easy stuffed French toast recipes as much as mine do! If you have any other easy breakfast ideas I'd love to hear them. I'm always looking to add better breakfast options to our lineup.
