Nutella and Strawberries Toas-Tite: it’s like Valentine’s Day in your mouth

So for our first Toas-Tite recipe, we’re going to dive right into the sweets with a good ol’ Nutella and strawberries Toas-Tite.  Sure, you’ve had it in a crepe.  And maybe you’ve even had chocolate covered strawberries.  But a Nutella and strawberries Toas-Tite?  It’s a great one for breakfast (if you like a sweet breakfast), dessert, or…whenever you’d eat a Nutella and strawberries crepe…

Ingredients

  • Sweet/unsalted butter (enough to cover both pieces of bread)
  • Two pieces of white bread
  • Two big strawberriesnutellastrawberriestoastite
  • Nutella

Directions

Gather up your ingredients.  If your butter came right out of the fridge, you’ll want to soften it up a bit (but not melted).  Butter your two pieces of bread.  Your buttering should be…generous?  Well, not too terribly generous.  Too much butter will make your bread a little too soggy and it will take a long time to toast up making your Toas-Tite a) very, very hot and b) gush overly-cooked strawberries.  Cut up your strawberries into medium sized pieces (roughly 8 pieces per strawberry).

Place one of your pieces of bread on your Toas-Tite with the buttered side down.  We’ll get in to tips and tricks later but if your bread is a little bit smaller than your Toas-Tite, turn one (with the longer side) horizontally and the other vertically.

126_5407Spread Nutella onto both pieces of bread.  On one piece, try somewhere between 1/16th and 1/8th of an inch thick – this is really a personal preference depending on what you want as your Nutella to strawberry ratio.  On the other side, just put a very light layer.  This will give your Toas-Tite a nice sandwich of Nutella but it won’t completely overpower the strawberries.  When it comes to Nutella, a little goes a pretty long way.

126_5416Layer in your cut-up strawberries into the center of one of the pieces of bread on top of the Nutella.  You can make a nice little mountain of strawberries.  The more you can get in, the better (or at least that’s what I think).

Carefully place the other piece of bread on top of your strawberries in the opposite orientation (as mentioned above).  Close the Toas-Tite, remove the extra bread, and latch away!

126_5414Toast up your Toas-Tite as usual (depending on your toastiness preference).  Boy and I definitely prefer ours distinctly toasted…otherwise you just end up with a slightly warmed, panini-like pocket, rather than a Toas-Tite.

Once you’re done, take it out and let it cool off a bit.  The inside will be plenty hot…and nobody likes a burnt tongue.  But then…enjoy!!

Notes

Boy and I actually tried our Nutella and strawberries Toas-Tite twice…once with rather finely chopped strawberries (think 16 pieces per strawberry) and once with chunkier strawberries.  Truth be told, it didn’t really make that much of a difference either way.  The strawberries retain just a bit more of their…strawberriness (it’s not exactly crunchy as your strawberries are good and cooked, but they’re a little less jam-like).

The Nutella and strawberries Toas-Tite isn’t really one that’s meant for cutting in half…the Nutella gets pretty saucy with the juice from the strawberries.  So be warned that it’s easier to just dive right in when you’re eating.  Otherwise, you might want to eat over a plate or the sink.

It helps to have at least a bit of a layer on each piece of bread to coat the strawberries.  But again…a lot of it really depends on your own personal preference for the Nutella:strawberry ratio.

Conclusion

This was our first experiment with a sweet Toas-Tite.  And other than being a little on the messy side, it was delicious and definitely one to be repeated.  If you’re a fan of the Nutella and strawberries combination, and a fan of the Toas-Tite, I think you’ll dig it.

    Oh la-la Boy and Girl what a thrill to check the progress of this site!! Must include Dads cheese and apple experiment!! Also, I think a Spagetti toast tite made with garlic bread might be fun, plan to try it and will let you know. Must have price information of sweat shirt, as I have a driving need to slap one on my toast tite eating …ah…well, you know. And I think the purse idea is brilliant. Anyone sew? Much Love and many tite hugs…..Auntie
