Most of the recipes featured on my blog are quite sensible and nutritious. However, every now and then, I experience a burst of creativity that leads me to experiment with some incredibly indulgent dishes. Today, I’d like to introduce you to one such creation: a breakfast or dessert option that’s dangerously easy to whip up. It’s essentially a sandwich filled with Nutella and marshmallows, dipped in a typical French toast egg mixture, and then pan-fried until it turns a beautiful golden brown. While I technically say toppings are optional, they’re pretty much a must-include – trust me on this!

Now, let me confess something: I have a hidden obsession with S’mores. It might seem odd for someone like me, an Aussie-Japanese who has never resided in the US, to have such a fixation. I was only introduced to S’mores last year, but ever since that moment, I’ve made sure to keep a stock of marshmallows in my pantry so I can satisfy my S’mores cravings in various ways, no campfire required. My usual go-to involves sandwiching marshmallows between graham crackers along with a piece of chocolate, wrapping it all in foil, and heating it in the oven until the marshmallow and chocolate meld into gooey perfection. I’ve also been known to pull off this microwave method. Beyond that, I’ve ventured into creations like S’mores Spring Rolls (not a great success), S’mores Triangles (another miss), and S’mores Burritos (not bad at all – maybe I’ll share that recipe another time).

Now, let’s talk about this particular concoction, which is undoubtedly the most extreme S’mores fix in my repertoire. I wish I could tell you it secretly boasts health benefits or that it’s a nutritional powerhouse, but alas, that’s not the case. It’s an unabashed indulgence, pure and simple. There’s nothing remotely healthy about it. But it is incredibly enjoyable, and let’s be honest, sometimes you just need to indulge. Trust me; it’s worth those extra calories to savor a mouthful of this heavenly stack of S’mores goodness.

Preparing this treat is deceptively easy, but it’s also somewhat dangerous because it’s so tempting. You start by generously spreading Nutella on slices of bread, then sandwiching them with halved marshmallows. Next, you dip this delightful creation into an egg and milk mixture and cook it just like regular French toast. And since you’ve already indulged a bit, why not go all the way and top it with your favorite chocolate sauce and more marshmallows?

You’ve put in a hard week’s work, so go ahead – treat yourself this weekend. You’ve earned it!

Equipment

Ingredients

  • 4 slices white sandwich bread , preferably stale

  • 1 tbsp butter

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tbsp milk

  • 16 marshmallows , halved horizontally

  • Nutella

  • TOPPINGS (OPTIONAL)

  • Marshmallows

  • Chocolate sauce

Instructions

1
Combine the egg and milk in a shallow dish, ensuring it's spacious enough to accommodate the bread slices.
2
Spread Nutella generously on all four slices of bread.
3
On two of the bread slices, position the marshmallows with the sticky side (cut side) facing upward.
4
In a skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat (refer to notes for further details).
5
Take the bread slices with the marshmallows and swiftly dip the non-Nutella side into the egg mixture, then place them into the heated skillet.
6
Dip the remaining two bread slices (the non-Nutella side) into the egg mixture and set them on top of the marshmallow-topped slices to form a sandwich. Ensure the Nutella-covered side is placed over the marshmallows, with the egg-dipped side facing up for later flipping.
7
Gently press down with a spatula to evenly distribute heat and encourage marshmallow melting. Be cautious not to apply excessive pressure, as this can lead to marshmallow leakage into the pan (I've learned this the hard way).
8
Once the bottom is beautifully golden brown (usually around 2 1/2 to 3 minutes), flip the sandwich and cook the other side until it achieves the same golden perfection (approximately 2 minutes).
9
Don't fret if the marshmallows don't ooze out during cooking; they'll continue to melt within the warmth of the sandwich. However, they should be incredibly soft – a simple touch will reveal their melted, gooey state inside.
10
Serve right away, optionally crowned with extra marshmallows and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Enjoy!

Notes

Opting for slightly stale bread is the preferred choice when making French toast. Using fresh bread, even if briefly dipped, can lead to excessive absorption of the egg mixture, potentially resulting in a soggy interior. Cooking this dish requires medium-high heat rather than high heat. This ensures that the sandwich's center has sufficient time to heat up and melt the marshmallows, necessitating a slightly slower cooking pace compared to regular French toast. Otherwise, the French toast may scorch before the marshmallows have a chance to liquefy. Please note that the nutrition analysis provided does not take into account the toppings used in the Smores French Toast recipe.
