This recipe is either going to horrify you or send you to heaven. Peanut butter, nutella and banana French toast sandwiches.
It's definitely a one-off kind of a lunch. One for a special treat that will cheer you up on a gloomy wet day.
I was inspired to make this after seeing Vanesther over at Bangers and Mash make some Banana Eggy Bread. I immediately started thinking about nutella oozing out and it did!
I tinkered with the recipe. Less egg for me and more filling. Oh boy did it hit the mark, but a little went a long way.
Now I have to ask you to keep this recipe quiet!
My husband and I have a long standing argument about French toast. I think it should have salt in in, but my hubby insists it should be sugar. This argument has been going on for over 20 years, yes I am that old!. So please keep this to yourself. He will just crow about it and I'll never hear the end of it. I still think French toast should have salt in it, but this sandwich is a different beast.

Do you make French toast with sugar or salt?
