S’mores French Toast Sandwiches

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1 French bread loaf
  • ½ cup (125 ml) hazelnut-chocolate spread
  • 8 regular-sized marshmallows
  • 4 graham crackers (1 sheet)
  • 6 large eggs
  • ½ cup (125 ml) half-and-half
  • ½ teaspoon (5 ml) ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 cup (250 ml) pure maple syrup (optional)


  1. Heat a Coleman stove to medium-high (about 375°F to 400°F/190°C to 200°C) or fit a grilling grate over the direct heat of glowing embers.
  2. Cut the bread loaf diagonally into eight ½ to ¾ inch-thick (1- to 2 cm-thick) slices. Spread one side of each bread slice with 1 tablespoon (15 ml) hazelnut-chocolate spread.
  3. Top four slices of bread with two marshmallows and one graham cracker. Cover with the remaining bread slices, hazelnut-chocolate spread side down.
  4. In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half and cinnamon.
  5. In a large non-stick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil on the camping stove or grilling grate.
  6. Dip each sandwich in the egg mixture, coating both sides.
  7. Add two sandwiches to the hot oil in the skillet and cook until the bread is golden brown and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Adjust the heat to prevent excessive browning, if necessary.
  8. Repeat with the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and two sandwiches. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.

So, get ready to ignite your taste buds and embark on a camping adventure that turns the classic s'mores into a culinary masterpiece, ensuring that your outdoor cooking experience is one you'll remember.
