Nutella is good on pretty much everything — even on its own eaten off a spoon — but if you’re looking for more creative ways to incorporate the iconic chocolatey hazelnut spread in your life, we just found a breakfast recipe to try ASAP.

Eloise Head of Fitwaffle Kitchen posted a Reel showcasing how to make Nutella-stuffed French toast sticks, and they look incredible. Best of all, you probably already have all the ingredients in your kitchen. 

To make this “super delicious” recipe, you’ll start by cutting the crusts off of six slices of bread. But if it’s your preference to leave the crusts on, Head notes that’s OK, too. Next, spread 3 to 5 tablespoons of Nutella over three of the slices, then place the remaining slices on top to make three sandwiches. Whisk together two large eggs, 1/4 cup milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract before slicing each sandwich into thirds, briefly dipping them into the milk mixture, and allowing the excess to drip off.

You’ll then melt butter in a nonstick pan over low heat and toast both sides of the French toast sticks until golden brown. Head uses two forks to flip the sticks, but you can also use a spatula or a pair of tongs. To make the cinnamon sugar, you’ll mix together 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar and cinnamon, then coat the hot batons with the mix. You can enjoy these French toast sticks warm, with an extra dip into even more Nutella or on their own.

If Nutella isn’t quite your thing, at the end of the video, Head notes that you can also use peanut butter, Biscoff spread, or whatever other spread you enjoy as a substitute.
