S’mores French Toast Sandwich

One of the few places I have not been able to visit is Toy Storyland in Hollywood Studios at WDW. They have some really delicious treats at Woody's Lunch Box which are very reminiscent of childhood favorites. Lunch box tarts are homemade version of Pop-Tarts. The Breakfast Bowl with smoked brisked country gravy totally has me salivating. The "Totchos" have me wondering why I never smother tater tots in chili, cheese, sour cream, and corn chips before. The S'mores French Toast Sandwich, however, has been calling my name like the disembodied voice in Frozen 2 (why isn't there a dehydration warning on that movie?! All the feelings, people!).


The menu from Woody's Lunchbox describes it as marshmallow and chocolate ganache custard-style, brioche french toast encrusted with graham cracker crumbs. Based on that description I made a simplified version at home. Using marshmallow fluff (mid-Westerns cheer!), Nutella (everyone else cheer!), sliced brioche bread, and pulverized graham crackers this sandwich really should be called dessert! It is wonderfully sweet, gooey, and gives you campfire feels. It also is totally french toast which is my favorite sweet breakfast food.


Building this sandwich was pretty straight forward. If your marshmallow fluff or Nutella is stiff, spoon them into separate microwave safe bowls and heat for 10 sec intervals until easy to spread. The brioche might tear on while attempting to spread which would be a big frustration. Place the two halves together and soak in a milk and egg mixture for 1-2 minutes in a shallow pan like a pie dish. I made a simply french toast soak instead of a custard-style with heavy cream and eggs to minimize my extract ingredients in The Time of Baking and Corona Virus. After soaking both sides, transfer to another shallow dish or plate with crush graham crackers. I used graham sticks that I found for cheap at King Soopers, put them in a quart sized zip lock and crushed them with a rolling pin to save money and time to find already crushed graham cracker crumbs. You can also crush them in a food processor. Crushing the graham crackers and coating the sandwiches are great steps to get kids involved. Mini Mouse was all over the coating step!

To fry them up, heat a frying pan on medium low. Melt 1/2 tbs of butter to start and add sandwich. Once browned, lift out of pan and add another 1/2 tbs of butter and melt. They really soak of the butter because of the crust. Without adding more butter they will be prone to burning versus browning. Return sandwich to pan and continue to cook until browned. A side of maple syrup is prefect for dipping!



If someone in your family is allergic to nuts, you can use Hershey's Chocolate Spread which contains no nuts. Either way chocolate + marshmallow + french toast = happiness at our house!
