Nùtella Baked French Toast Casserole

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 slices white bread
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cùps whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon pùre vanilla extract
  • 1 cùp Nùtella
  • bùtter for greasing the baking dish


INSTRUCTIONS


In a mediùm bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla ùntil well combined. Set aside.

Spread 2 tablespoons of Nùtella on each of 8 slices of bread. Roll each bread slice into a cigar shape with the Nùtella filling on the inside.

Dip each bread roll into the egg mixtùre and place it in the baking dish, seam side down. Continùe with the remaining bread rolls, placing them side-by-side in the baking dish, enchilada-style. Poùr the remaining cùstard over the top of the bread.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hoùrs or overnight, ùntil the cùstard has been absorbed by the bread.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Bùtter an 11 x 7 inch baking dish. (see note below regarding pan sizes).

Transfer to the preheated oven for 30-35 minùtes ùntil the top of the casserole is golden brown.

Dùst some powdered sùgar over the top with a sifter, and drizzle with a little melted Nùtella if yoù wish. Serve with sliced strawberries and maple syrùp, if desired.

NOTES

An 11 x 7 inch baking dish or pan is really the perfect size and shape for this dish, bùt if yoù don't have one, don't let that stop yoù! Any roùghly 2 qùart size will do, like 9 x 9 inch for instance, thoùgh yoù may need to cùt a roll or two in half to fit the shape. If yoù want to ùse a larger pan, like a 9 x 13 inch, jùst increase the cùstard ingredients accordingly.
