Nutella-filled "Frenched" Tortillas

 
This post starts with a happy accident. 

I love to make french toast in the mornings for kiddo.  It's easy, no measuring....eggs, a little milk, sprinkle of sugar, dash of vanilla....whisk it all up...bread, pan, BAM!...french toast.

Well, a few weeks ago, I whisked up the eggs, milk, etc. and realized....I was OUT.OF. BREAD.

What's a girl to do?  In Texas, you might run out of bread, but you always have tortillas.  So, "frenched" tortillas were born and they are now a staple in our house.

Let me tell you how to make them.  Prepare....you are about to achieve domestic goddess status in 5 minutes.

OK....I like the start with these "ready-to-cook" tortillas.  But, these may be just a Texas thing. (They're in the refrigerated section at HEB, y'all.)  So, start with flour tortillas. (If they are the ready-to-cook kind, cook them.)

Whisk up 2 eggs, about 1/2 cup milk, a TBSP or so of sugar (or cinnamon-sugar), and a dash of vanilla.  (Eyeball it.)

Heat up a pan and add a pat of butter.....I like salted, but whatever you have.

Dip both sides of the tortilla in the egg mixture; let the excess drip off.  Cook briefly in the pan; flip and cook the other side (but you knew that).

Once cooked, add a spoonful (1-2 TBSP) of Nutella down the middle of each tortilla.  Roll.
 
{Don't you want to dive right in?}

Dust with powdered sugar.  If you're feeling fancy (and you probably are), heat up a bit of Nutella in the microwave.  Drizzle over the tortillas.

SOMEDAY, when kiddo goes off to college, he will come home for *THESE*.

  11. Oh my gosh. I want these, NOW! And I am going to have to check our grocery stores now to see if the ready to cook tortillas are a local Texas thing or if I can find them in the Midwest. That would be fantastic! Great breakfast innovation!

  12. This is "Freaking French Fabulous-ness" (and a little early morning alliteration!)

    hungry.

  14. wowza - what a great idea! I would have never thought to do "frenched" tortillas

    ReplyDelete
  15. I had a two-pack of Nutella in my hand at Costco yesterday but I thought, "naah. If I buy it I'll eat the whole thing." So I put the Nutella back. If only I'd known I could have made a great breakfast with it!

    Guess I'll pick some up today at HEB along with my tortillas.

  16. I've been thinking of giving the munchkin nutella but didn't know how. This is a GREAT idea!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love your line *...Kiddo will come home for THESE* and I'm betting he brings a load of his college buddies with him.

    Great idea that Ferrero Corp would love to see!

  18. YUMMO
    We are ALL ABOUT THE NUTELLA over here.
    And next time you need bread? Try the neighbor next door neighbor (not me, the other one. I'm always out of everything :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I can't tell you how many of these I've eaten over the years.
    On the other hand, my hips will probably give you a fairly good estimate!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Delicious! Never made them with nutella before...will try them for sure!

    I live in Oregon and we too have the ready to cook tortillas (not just a Texas thing :) ). I love them and we often cook them up with cinnamon and sugar. I do the same with left over eggroll wrappers...cinnamon and sugar and then deep fried.

    Thanks for your scrumptious tip!

  21. I am so impressed with you improvisation! They look so yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  22. you are a genius! but i gotta say that i like the ready to cook tortillas sold at wal mart better. (even though i despise going into that store i do it for the tortillas)

    ReplyDelete
  23. BRILLIANT! Can't wait to try these :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Just as I was struggling with what I was going to make for breakfast tomorrow, you come out with this superman of an idea! But I have bread and I am going to use that.

    Thanks for the share.

  26. A happy accident, indeed! These look AMAZING, Bridget :)

  27. what a perfect idea! they remind me a bit of crepes! and anything with nutella is delicous (ok maybe not broccoli and nutella, but you know what i mean!)

    i'm going to try these out on my boyfriend, thanks for a great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Don't you love how Nutella (on the packaging) talks about how it is a part of a "balanced breakfast"? It always makes me feel better when I dive right in! I love adding more balance to my life. Your Frenche Tortillas are a good addition to my Nutella addiction.

  60. I made these tonight and put fresh sliced strawberries in one and sliced banana in another and topped them both with homemade whipped cream. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Yesterday (for dinner actually lol) I was in the mood for syrup, moments before making french toast I remembered these bad boys. You should have seen me trying to dip the tortilla in the batter! My mom thought I was crazy! Anyway, I'm not sure if I'd like the mix of Nutella and syrup, so I spread it with peanut butter instead. YUM!!! It's a little messier with syrup but totally worth it!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I think I'll make these for my daughter soon.
