FFWD - Nutella Tartine
tartine: n. A French open-faced sandwich, especially one with a rich or fancy spread.
Without a doubt, Nutella Tartine is the easiest recipe in Around My French Table. So easy, it's hard to even call it a recipe.
Dorie tries to make harder by suggesting that readers make brioche bread to use but I couldn't pass up the chance to do it up easy this week. There is an adorable bakery a block from my office so I walked down there on my lunch break in hopes of finding a freshly baked loaf of brioche or challah. Not finding any, I spied the croissants and decided that would be perfect for a nutella sandwich.
Wow, was this good! The slight bitterness of the orange marmalade against the chocolate was divine. Chopped hazelnuts casually strewn across the top and a tiny sprinkle of salt were the final garnishes to this delightful treat.
I'm pretty sure most of my fellow French Friday with Dorie participants didn't take the lazy route like yours truly. You can see their creations by visiting, here.
