Enjoy this delicious recipe supplied by Marlyn’s any day of the week, topped with toasted chopped hazelnuts, bananas, strawberries or blueberries for an extra dose of deliciousness.
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup whole milk
3 tablespoons butter
8 (1/2-inch) thick slices brioche bread
8 tablespoons of Nutella or any other chocolate spread, divided
Pinch of salt
Grade B maple syrup or powdered sugar, for serving
In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and salt. Working in batches, melt some of the 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 2 slices of the bread until golden brown, and then flip over and cook until golden brown on the other side. Spread 2 tablespoons of Nutella on 1 piece of the bread, and place the other piece of cooked bread on top to enclose the spread. Gently press down with a spatula so the toast slices stick together.
Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Serve with grade B maple syrup or powdered sugar.
