FFWD Nutella Tartine

Nutella Tartine.....my delicious snack

This has to be the easiest French Friday recipe ever! In fact, it has to be the easiest recipe in Dorie's book!  Easy really worked for me this week. We are on the road heading south for a visit with my son's family in Georgia.
I'm not sure I would even consider this a real recipe. It calls for a slice of Brioche or Challah, brushed with melted butter and put under a broiler to toast. You then take the bread and spread it with Orange Marmalade, drizzle on some warmed Nutella and sprinkle with chopped Hazelnuts. That's it!! Done!
So, yesterday while I was busy packing for our trip, washing clothes and emptying my refrigerator, I stopped for a snack of Nutella Tartine. I didn't use Brioche or Challah. I used the delicious white bread I made for TwD. I thought it would be perfect for my French Friday recipe and I was right. This turned out to be a perfect snack to have with my tea. It gave me the energy to move on and finish what I had to do, so that we would be able to leave at 6 am. After a full day of driving I am now sitting in my hotel room trying to write this post, and feeling like I'm not making any sense, because I'm so tired...So Happy Friday everyone!
If you'd like to make this delicious snack it can be found in Dorie Greenspans cookbook "Around My French Table" or here on NPR where Dorie shared this recipe.




 YUM!!

  2. Those Nutella swirls look perfect! I had a tougher time with mine and thinned it out with a little milk.

  3. I call non-recipe recipes like these "open-concepts" (i.e. meant to be fiddled with).
    Have a safe trip and a wonderful time with your family!

  4. You have presented this so beautifully...and you know that if I say that, and there is chocolate involved, that you must have done a stellar job as chocolate never looks good to me! ;-)

  6. What a perfect snack! I think I might have liked this a little better on plain white bread rather than the brioche. Yours looks delicious!

  7. I thought about using the TwD bread, too, but it disappeared so quickly! Yours looks lovely and you're right, this is not so much a recipe as a very good idea.

    Hope you have a wonderful visit with your family!

  8. Gorgeous use of a toasted slice from a good loaf of white bread! It's a very simple recipe, that's for sure. Isn't it hard to write a post when you're wiped out! Enjoy your trip and thanks for sharing this week;-)

  9. Kathy-I can imagine how delicious these Tartines were on your perfect white bread that you made for Tuesday. Topped with such a yummy Nutella topping certainly is a wonderful treat, any time of the day.
    Hope you have a nice trip, and a wonderful time with your son, and family, in Georgia!
    BTW-I have a couple of awards, waiting for you to claim, when you get back. Just don't even think about it now...I can remind you when you get back!

  12. Nice to be able to make this with homemade bread. This didn't go over very well at my house. Too much like PB&J. This is the first one that I didn't like, not bad after a year plus. Enjoy your trip, Kathy!
