Challah French Toast Bake with NUTELLA® hazelnut spread

An extra special breakfast.

Something very special happens when thick slices of challah bread get transformed into French toast. Something even more miraculous happens when you spread on a little NUTELLA® hazelnut spread.
INGREDIENTS
Challah French Toast Bake with NUTELLA<sup>®</sup> hazelnut spread
8 large eggs
2 ½ cups milk
2 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tbsp packed light brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
1 loaf brioche/egg/challah bread sliced ½” thick  
1 cup chopped toasted hazelnuts (optional)
8 tbsp NUTELLA® hazelnut spread, 1 tbsp per serving

STEPS

STEP 1

Generously butter a 9″ x 13″ baking dish.

 

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt until well blended, but don’t over-beat.

STEP 2

Arrange the bread slices in 2 lengthwise rows in the baking dish, slightly overlapping the slices.

STEP 3

Pour the egg mixture over the challah and gently press down. Cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, preheat oven to 350° F. Meanwhile, carefully flip each piece of bread, doing this will allow the bread to soak up a little more of the liquid, ensuring the tops of the bread slices are moist.

Bake for 45 minutes for a softer, more bread pudding-like texture or for 1 hour for a firmer, crisper texture.

Top with toasted hazelnuts, if desired. Let sit 10 minutes. Scoop out individual portions to serve with NUTELLA® hazelnut spread. Enjoy with a glass of milk and side of fruit!

Et voila!
