Nutella French Toast Casserole


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


  • 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.
