This rich recipe from the Food Network takes just 20 minutes to complete, including cook time, and it yields 4 servings. This is great for beginner cooks who need to satisfy their sweet tooth in the morning, and is best served alongside a hot cup of coffee.
- 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 cup whole milk
- 8 (½-inch) thick slices brioche or challah bread
- 8 tablespoons chocolate hazelnut spread, divided
- Pinch of salt
Directions: In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and salt. Working in batches, melt some butter in a large nonstick skillet over moderately high heat. Dip the bread slices in the egg mixture and quickly transfer to the skillet. Cook two slices of the bread until golden brown, and then flip over and cook until golden brown on the other side.
Spread 2 tablespoons of the chocolate hazelnut spread on one piece of the bread, and place the other piece of cooked bread on top to enclose the chocolate hazelnut spread. Gently press down with a spatula so the pieces stick together. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Optional: Serve with butter, maple syrup, and/or powered sugar.
