1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 pinches of salt
Loaf of day old French or Italian Bread
3 Tbsp. Nutella
1/2 banana, cut into thin slices
Butter or margarine
Powdered sugar (optional)
Putting it Together
In a blender, blend eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt until they combine. Pour mixture in a shallow baking dish and set aside.
Slice three, 1 1/2-inch thick bread slices from loaf of bread. Butterfly each slice without cutting right through the other side of the bread slice (see pics). Open the mouth of each bread slice. Spread 1 tablespoon of Nutella inside each one, followed by a few banana slices. Lightly butter outside of bread (both sides) like you would for a grilled cheese sandwich.
Lightly brush the cooking surface of a non-stick skillet with canola oil. Heat over medium heat. Take one stuffed bread slice and dip one side (without submerging the opening where the cut is) in the egg mixture. Let sit for 5 seconds. Lift bread out of egg mixture, shake off any excess liquid, then dip the other side of the stuffed bread slice in the egg mixture for 5 seconds. Remove from egg mixture, shake off excess liquid and place in skillet.
Cook in skillet until both sides are slightly crisp and golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining stuffed bread slices. Dust each with powdered sugar and drizzle with syrup.
