nutella tartine

It was hard for me not to make this week’s FFWD recipe.  It’s toast– heck, I can make time for that!  Toast with yummy stuff on top, that is.  This tartine is a thick slice of brioche with butter, marmalade, Nutella, nuts and salt.  You could buy everything and simply assemble it, but I happened to have a couple of the components in homemade form (but already on hand).  I still had some homemade brioche in the freezer, and over the holidays, my BFF and I made a big pot of mixed-citrus marmalade to give to family.  A bit of sweet, a bit of sour and a bit of salt…this is toast at its finest.  Dorie says this is a typical after-school snack for French children, but I ate mine for breakfast.  Then I went to the dentist and he found no cavities.  Breakfast of champions.

For the recipe, see Around my French Table by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out my fellow francophiles’ posts.

  1. Lucky! All my pre-made brioche was eaten. I’ll have to try it again after I make more brioche loaves!

  2. Looks great. I love Nutella, but I would never have thought to add chopped nuts as a garnish…or the salt. Delish.

  3. Breakfast of champions indeed! That’s too funny. The mixed citrus marmalade sounds wonderful.

  4. Love your photos, and have to admit that I was reading your blog long before I figured out about this group cook & blog thing. Your blog finally got me hooked, so thanks!

  5. Love your picture! I agree, this is so easy how can you not make it?

  6. Ah, Nutella and marmalade tartines must be approved by the American Dental Assoc. to not cause cavities. What a pitch that would be!

  7. Yum. NOthing wrong with Nutella and brioche.

  8. I agree, this one was too easy to pass up! Love the composition of your photo.

  9. I had every intention of making this. I had been thinking about it Thursday night even. However, my 4 year old had a lousy morning on Friday and I totally forgot about it. Maybe tomorrow. 🙂

  10. Fun breakfast! Lovely photo.

  11. I can’t believe I didn’t make this one – my kids would have devoured it! OK, I would have devoured it too. On my to-do list. Yours looks beautiful.

  12. I’m jealous of all the homemade citrus marmalades! And homemade brioche to boot. That’s a lovely photo.

  13. great for you! maybe you can send a slice of this over to the dentist as a thank- you 🙂

  14. Your tartine looks perfect! I think your marmalade sounds like a really good fit for it, too. The only danger is knowing how relatively easy it is to make brioche at home.
