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 for 8 servings
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
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.
Arrange the bread slices in 2 lengthwise rows in the baking dish, slightly overlapping the slices.
Pour the egg mixture over the challah and gently press down. Cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight.
