On my never ending search for ways of delivering Nutella, I've discovered another delicious method in the form of French Roast roll ups!

What you need

  • Tall thick sliced white bread
  • Nutella
  • Mascarpone
  • 2 large free range eggs
  • 25 ml of milk
  • Ground nutmeg
  • Salt
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Caster sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • Honey
  • Butter

Steps

**Pro tip** warm your Nutella in the microwave for 30 seconds to soften. 

Start by creating the bread rolls. Cut away the crusts of each slice individually and discard. Using a rolling pin on a clean, dry surface roll the bread as flat as you can.

Spread Nutella and then mascarpone thickly along the length of the flattened bread, leaving a 1-2cm gap at one end. Roll into a tight roll. Using a knife, spread a small amount of honey along the empty end and press to seal the roll. 

Create your batter / custard. Crack the eggs into a shallow dish. Add the milk, a pinch of nutmeg, half a teaspoon of cinnamon, half a teaspoon of caster sugar and a pinch of salt. Beat together well. Heat your pan with a knob of butter. 

Quickly soak three rolls in your batter, making sure all sides get a quick covering. Transfer to the heated pan. Fry for 30 secs per side or until golden brown, turning regularly and evenly. Set aside to a hot plate if possible. Repeat as many times as required!! 

Arrange the sticks seductively, covering them in maple syrup or honey. Grab your phone and take a picture to tag me in (Instagram @toms_big_eats) and then dunk away in your favourite dip!!!
