Yep. It’s that time again! World Nutella Day 2008. This year, it is February 5th. A time for all of us to
celebrate worship Nutella. That thick, sweet, chocolaty, hazelnut spread. Goodness in a jar!
Unfortunately, I just missed the event last year. I didn’t know about it…or didn’t know about the bloggers that hosted the event. I did however, have a recipe I could have used. A Nutella dessert. You can read it about it here.
This year, my entry is a breakfast item. I present you……
Nutella French Toast
12 slices white bread or brioche
2 1/4 cups milk
1 tsp cinnamon
splash of Grand Marnier
zest and juice of 1 orange
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla
Make the batter. Whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, Grand Marnier, zest, juice, honey and vanilla in a large bowl. Spread equal amounts of Nutella on 6 slices of bread. Put another slice of bread on top, making a Nutella sandwich.
Heat griddle or pan on medium heat, melt butter in pané
Place each Nutella sandwich, one at a time, in the batter. Soak and turn to coat, but not for too long (you don’t want them soggy). Place each sandwich on the pan and cook until golden brown on each side. Cut each sandwich in half, diagonally. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup.
Serves 4. Each serving is 3 diagonal slices.
Enjoy! And please remember, this one is ooey-gooey, finger licking good. Don’t waste a morsel of this melted gold, called Nutella. I won’t tell if you decide to lick your plate clean….
Happy Nutella Day 2008, everyone!!
