Ingredients

  • 8 slices white bread
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ¼ cups whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • butter for greasing the baking dish

Instructions

  • Butter an 11 x 7 inch baking dish. (see note below regarding pan sizes). In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla until well combined. Set aside.
  • Spread 2 tablespoons of Nutella on each of 8 slices of bread. Roll each bread slice into a cigar shape with the Nutella filling on the inside.
  • Dip each bread roll into the egg mixture and place it in the buttered baking dish, seam side down. Continue with the remaining bread rolls, placing them side-by-side in the baking dish, enchilada-style. Pour the remaining custard over the top of the bread.
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight, until the custard has been absorbed by the bread.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Transfer to the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes until the top of the casserole is golden brown.
  • Dust some powdered sugar over the top with a sifter, and drizzle with a little melted Nutella if you wish. Serve with sliced strawberries and maple syrup, if desired.

Notes

An 11 x 7 inch baking dish or pan is really the perfect size and shape for this dish, but if you don't have one, don't let that stop you! Any roughly 2 quart size will do, like 9 x 9 inch for instance, though you may need to cut a roll or two in half to fit the shape. If you want to use a larger pan, like a 9 x 13 inch, just increase the custard ingredients accordingly. This recipe is pretty forgiving, so don't worry about precise proportions too much.  [amazon_link asins='B00PI0G470' template='ProductCarousel' store='ourhappymes00-20' marketplace='US' link_id='1a3c6ebb-9c71-4b1e-b32d-3e0cc0e7f9b8']
