To get some creative minds together, I invited friends over for a Nutella Breakfast.
I was racking my brain for what to serve when I stumbled upon a baked French toast recipe by The Pioneer Woman and I just knew I had to make this.
I followed most of her recipe but omitted the cream (I used all milk) and for the crumble I substituted half of the butter with Nutella to make a Nutella crumble. I soaked the bread in the egg/milk mixture overnight so the French toast came out super moist and yummy.

|The crumble adds a bit of crunch and perfectly complements the moist French toast. The baby Nutellas are just so adorable!|
|This is what we came up with for the Nutella Project...Baked French toast served with crispy bacon, bananas, cream cheese, maple syrup and of course Nutella. Not the healthiest of breakfasts but certainly yummy and worth the calories!|
As for using Nutella for breakfast, I'd recommend trying it with bacon, cream cheese or something savoury. The saltiness balances the sweetness of Nutella perfectly!
