Nutella Tartine


Nutella Tartine... or Fancy PB & J? One in the same my friends. This is the classed-up adult version of the lunch box classic. As we welcome the new year, why not enjoy some new versions of our favorite comfort foods? I love the combination of chocolate, orange and hazelnut. It is fancy and yet very comforting. I love this as a quick breakfast sandwich, but it might also become a late-night-studying-staple-snack. This may just become the new classic in my new year.
Nutella Tartine adapted from Dorie Greenspan's, Around my French Table

1/4 cup Nutella
4 slices Brioche or challah would be best but any bread you have on hand would work
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup orange marmalade
Flaky salt
Hazelnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped

1. Butter and toast bread
2. Heat the Nutella slowly in the microwave or in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water and heat, stirring frequently, just until it is softened and warm.
3. Spread the marmalade over the hot bread, generously drizzle with warm Nutella.
4. Top with a sprinkle of salt and some chopped hazelnuts.
