Nutella French Toast Sandwich

This will likely be the most decadent French Toast you’ll ever make… the kind you save for special occasions or holidays. Plus, the genius of the whole thing is you can assemble it the night before, store it in the refrigerator, and then pop it in the oven when you wake up!
The combination of the brioche bread, the orange zest, bananas and of course the Nutella is simply beyond delicious. You can always leave half of it plain if you have someone who doesn’t like Nutella (crazy i know) and you could swap out the bananas for strawberries as well.
Whichever way you choose, I hope it makes whatever you’re celebrating that much sweeter!
