I love Nutella - and this is delicious!  Reheat leftovers in the oven to crisp up the top again.

 12-14 - ½ inch slices of French Bread
1 Jar of Nutella
3 eggs
1 cup heavy cream
1 ½ C. Milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Scant 1/2 teaspoon salt
¾ C. sugar

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees .
Paint one side of the French Bread with a generous slather of Nutella.  Top with another slice of bread to make a sandwich.  Cut into 2 or 3 pieces to fit together in the bottom of a well-greased 9X13 baking dish.  Repeat until all the bread fits.
Beat together the remaining ingredients and pour over the bread.  Let sit for an hour for a better soak or not.  15 minutes will work too.
Mix together ½ C. brown sugar , 2 T melted butter and 1 C chopped pecans or walnuts.  Sprinkle on the top of the bread and bake for 40-45 minutes.   Serve warm, with Buttermilk Carmel Syrup or just ice Cream.
