*Smush* each piece of bread so that it's thin and dense.

We used a rolling pin, but if you're the type who's more likely to have a wine bottle lying around, you can use that instead. You could also just *smush* the bread with the pan you'll fry the roll-ups. Or like, use your hands.


Strawberry Nutella French Toast Roll-Ups

Makes 6 roll-ups

Estimated active time: 15 minutes

Estimated total time: 15 minutes

6 slices white sandwich bread

6 tablespoons Nutella

6 strawberries, hulled and diced

2 large eggs

ΒΌ cup whole milk

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 tablespoons powdered sugar

Slice the crusts off the slices of bread, then use a rolling pin to roll each slice so that it's flat and dense. Spread a tablespoon of Nutella evenly over each slice, then lay one sliced in a row at the bottom of each slice. Roll up each bread slice into a cigar shape, starting at the edge closest to the strawberries.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and granulated sugar. Dip each roll-up in the mixture, letting any excess liquid drip back into the bowl, and set the dredged roll-ups on a plate.

Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, then place the bread roll-ups in the pan. Cook, turning the roll-ups occasionally, until all sides are golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes total. Serve with dusted powdered sugar!
