Laurent Tourondel's 'Elvis' Sandwich
Made With Nutella and Rum, This Isn't Your Average Sandwich
Try this decadent sandwich from chef Laurent Tourondel.
Make the French toast base Combine all ingredients in a medium size mixing bowl, and whisk until fully incorporated. Set aside.
Make the sandwiches Place 6 slices of brioche in a single layer on a baking sheet. Evenly spread 4 tablespoons of nutella over each slice and top with enough sliced banana to cover completely. Top each piece of brioche with remaining brioche to form the "Elvis" sandwich.
Carefully soak each brioche sandwich in the French toast base for 5 seconds on each side and transfer to a dripping rack.
Heat a large nonstick sauté pan over medium heat. Coat the bottom of the pan with ¼ cup of clarified butter. Evenly sprinkle the sugar into the clarified butter, enough to cover the bottom of pan, about 3-4 tablespoons. Allow the sugar to cook until fully incorporated and mixture becomes fluid, about one minute. Place enough sandwiches in 1 even layer into the pan, continuously moving so they do not burn. Once dark and golden brown in color (about 4-5 minutes) flip and continue to cook until cook both sides are golden brown in color.
Once sandwiches have cooked through, carefully flambé with 2 tablespoons of Myers rum.
Remove sandwiches from pan. Repeat with remaining sandwiches. Slice in half and garnish with confectionary sugar.
