French Fridays with Dorie – Nutella Tartine

by Jessica on February 10, 2012

It’s been a while since I posted a FFwD recipe, but since we celebrated ‘World Nutella Day’ this past Sunday, I figured this would be the perfect time to jump back in. Naturally, I bought the mega jar of Nutella for such occasions. 🙂

I couldn’t find any hazelnuts in these parts, so to make the Tartine a bit more ‘Southern’, I subbed chopped pecans on top. This is such a simple, yet indulgent, treat. Perfect for after-school snacks, after-dinner dessert on a weeknight or with a steaming cup of dark roast, as a sinful Friday morning breakfast. 😉

Anything can be improved by the judicious use of pecans. I would have shared with my kids, but I’m greedy! Lol…

Nutella – who can resist!
That’s beautiful and pecans are a perfect topping for such a treat.

I’ve never been able to find fresh hazelnuts either – sad! Regardless, this looks soooo good!

Just came home from the grocery store with a new jar of Nutella and saw your post! Funny or fate?? I think I know the answer. :-). Looks divine.

You can’t go wrong with pecans and chocolate. If I had to choose between pecans and hazelnuts, I’d always pick out the pecans. That French bread looks wonderful.

Perfect! That top photo with the Nutella dripping down the size makes me want to lick it off…I need to go to the kitchen now and make another of these tartine goodies for my lunch.

Your tartine looks delicious! And, I missed World Nutella Day this year, so I’m happy to have made this recipe this week.

It was sinful Friday breakfast for us:) I used pecans too and I thought the salt added a touch of sophistication.

So pretty on your round bread! I think I would have liked it with another jam.

“World Nutella Day” – Who knew? I am a new fan of Nutella, a rebirth, after 35 years. But, I never knew there was a jumbo jar – that may be a little over-the-top for me. I like the pecan-idea. Hey, Jessica, what do you think about marshmellows on top of Nutella, instead of nuts. Might work?

Lovely round loaves. Perfect, indeed, with dark roast.

Love it with the pecans. Yum!

“Sinful” why yes! And so so good. I’ve been eating this for breakfast two days in a row now. Nice substitution with the pecans. Oh I haven’t visit your blog in a while. Love your profile photo with the kitchen among the trees!

I couldn’t find hazelnuts either, so I bought a bag of mixed nuts, and picked out the hazelnuts. Good, but I think the pecans might be better, and are definitely easier to find.

The inclusion of pecans certainly gives this a southern twist – bet they were terrific! Looks terrific, great photos!

I was surprised to learn that hazelnuts were so tough for some to find. I had a moment of panic at my local store but did scare up a bag after all. We had a blast with this ‘non recipe” in our house and it was a big hit at Nana’s as well. As usual, even with the basics…Dorie got us to combine a magical few ingredients we would not have put together on our own. Esp that salt part….which I LOVED. Great post !

I think cooking with what you have often improves a recipe as it gets personalized. Glad that you enjoyed this one (though I didn’t). Perfect way to start a decadent Friday.

Glad you enjoyed this! Yours came out beautifully. I feel like I’m the only person who couldn’t manage to make drizzled nutella look pretty! Enjoy the rest of your nutella jar 🙂
