Nutella Banana Peanut Butter Stuffed French Toast

I was watching Foodnetwork one day and found a similar recipe for this French Toast.  It was just bananas and peanut butter stuffed inside bread.  I decided Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread) would be a great addition, and it definitely was.  This is great for breakfast or even dessert.  Enjoy!

Serves 4

8 slices of bread (I prefer a thick, chewy bread, but any bread is fine)
2 eggs
2 tablespoons of cinnamon
1/4 of water
2 bananas
1 cup smooth or chunky peanut butter
1 cup nutella

Begin heating a large skillet with butter.  Peel and slice bananas into very thin slices. 

If you are using a whole loaf of bread, slice 8 pieces, about a 1/2 inch - 1inch thick.  If you are using already sliced bread that is fine too. 

To prepare the egg wash, crack 2 eggs into a shallow bowl.  Beat the eggs.  Then add cinnamon and 1/4 cup of water.  Beat eggs again until light and fluffy. 

Take one slice of bread and spread with peanut butter, then top with a thin layer of bananas.  On another piece of bread spread the nutella and place it over the first piece of bread like you are making a sandwich.  Continue this with the rest of the ingredients.  Then soak each sandwich in the egg wash and allow to drain a little bit.  Fry in pan until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes per side.  Serve and enjoy!
