For the woman with an angel's patience: Nutella French Toast Hearts

For many families, serving mom breakfast in bed on Mother's Day is a cherished tradition. Although, this year, let's hope it also comes with a complete clean-up of the kitchen afterwards. (Ahem!)

Hey... wait a minute. Are you a mom? No peeking! Maybe find some other reading material today. (Sorry!) Go ahead. On you go. We'll wait...

OK, now that she's gone, everyone else, gather 'round. Here's the delicious magic that you're about to concoct for the most amazing woman on the planet:

You will need (for 1 serving):

  • 3 slices of bread
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon
  • butter
  • 3 strawberries
  • 2 tbsp Nutella
  • powdered sugar

Here's how:

  1. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to make heart-shaped bread slices.
  2. Combine the egg, milk, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl and dip the bread on both sides, letting it soak up as much of the egg mixture as possible. 
  3. Melt some butter in a pan and sautée the bread on both sides until golden brown.
  4. Remove the stems and cut the strawberries into slices. Spread a generous portion of Nutella on two of the three pieces of French Toast, top with strawberry slices, stack, and then sprinkle the top slice with powdered sugar. Garnish with a strawberry fan.

If you really want to make mom's day, perhaps a glass of champagne on the side? Or... why be stingy? It's her day, after all!
