Nutella Tartine


Time for French Fridays with Dorie! This week I learned something new, a tartine is a French open faced sandwich. I had no idea really, I thought it was some sort of dessert between a torte and a tart or something. Now I know. I love learning new things, always on that quest for knowledge, 'ya know? ;)

I also learned that this...


loaf of freshly baked by me brioche


PLUS


butter, nutella, sea salt (I currently have no Fleur de sel), and plain ole Smuckers Sweet Orange Marmalade (I have no bitter orange marmalade and couldn't find any)

EQUALS



DELICIOUS

and just to switch things up a touch, I made one with Strawberry Peach Champagne Jam, a special one for mommy...


These were happily gobbled up, after I cut them into fourths, the first quarter was gobbled up inside...



(Above is my sweet Kindergartner who was sent home from school early after sustaining a classroom fall, ouch! My poor baby with a goose egg on his forehead. )



and the remaining three quarters were delivered to the back yard, where the kids requested their after school snack while enjoying this unusually warm and sunny February day.


The end :)

I"m remembering this recipe for my grandkiddies...they will feel the love lots more with Nutella sandwiches over peanut butter, I'm sure. Nice post.

When I was making this, I kept thinking it would be a great after school snack for kids. Looks like your little guy enjoyed it even with the goose egg! Great photos!

Oh wow. That brioche looks fantastic. Did you use Dorie's recipe for the Bubble Top ones?

Pamela said...

So sorry your little one had a spill. Glad he at least got the yummy tartine to make the day a little better. And kudos for knocking out your own loaf of brioche. Great photos !

Great after school snack.
Hope the little guy is doing well.

Oh, a Nutella Tartine for a wounded soldier. I loved the picture of your little guy. Honestly, those bumps and bruises, as you know, are a way-of-life for the next few years. Perhaps you should load up and have a few jars in reserve. I loved your Post. Enjoy these years. They go by so quickly.

I wasn't sure what tartine meant either till reading other blogs. Your bread looks wonderful, great pictures.
