This Nutella Tartine is a popular snack with French school children made with toasted brioche, creamy hazelnut spread and a smear of orange marmalade. Would my family enjoy this exotic twist on the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich?
An Exotic Twist on PB & J
Even though I could have eaten the whole jar of Nutella with a spoon, this didn’t wow me. I now know I prefer my Nutella without marmalade and my marmalade without Nutella. It’s not far off from a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, using Nutella instead of pb and marmalade instead of jelly or jam.
Since I have never liked the classic pb & j sandwich, it’s no surprise, I wasn’t a fan. But all those French children can’t be wrong, so give this Nutella tartine a try and let me know what you think!

A gourmet twist on the peanut butter and jelly sandwich using Nutella and orange marmalade!
- 1/4 cup Nutella
- 4 slices brioche or challah bread
- 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/4 cup orange marmalade (I used Bonne Maman)
- Coarse salt, optional
- Toasted chopped hazelnuts, to garnish
Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil, and set aside.
Put Nutella in a microwavable bowl. Heat until softened and warmed, 15-20 seconds.
Brush one side of each slice of bread with melted butter. Put the bread on the baking sheet with the buttered side up. Broil the bread until the tops are lightly toasted, watching carefully to prevent burning.
Spread the orange marmalade over the toasted bread. Drizzle with warm Nutella. Sprinkle lightly with a coarse salt, if desired. Garnish with toasted hazelnuts.

I am not sure how I feel about marmalade with nutella either – perhaps a case of two great things diminishing one another? I would love it with something with raspberries though, I am sure of it! Looks lovely anyway!
Awww.. Nutella. This sounds delish. Oh, and Im still in awe over those Twice Baked potatoes too! Mmmmm

Beautiful! Absolutely right, what a yummy way to start off the day.
Delicious! I love Nutella!
Yummy ! You made the plain bread looks sophisticated 😉
I love the pairing with the slices of oranges. Biting into the slices of oranges and eating the tartine will be something I will enjoy.
This does look delicious. The whole marmalade and Nutella thing I am on the fence about though. While some fruit flavors may be good with Nutella I am not sure marmalade is it.
Your pictures do look amazing! Glad I got your feedback on this recipe.
A brillant sweet treat! love it!

I love nutella,great recipe idea for my breakfast,I wish I have one slice now for my breakfast 🙂 Sound yummy with my coffee !!
YES PLEASE! I am in love with Nutella!
It may not have been what you were hoping, but it sure does look beautiful!
Ha! I had to nix the marmalade and go with berry jam. And, since I was indulging, I made full Nutella slices as well. The orange slices on the side were genius.
I’m not a Nutella fan, but this toast looks very appetising.
Positively wonderfully evil. =)
